Surprised at only two centers as that’s a big position of need in that class IMO. But these are only the names we know of, probably many more.

Just throwing it out there and nothing will probably come of this, but Jalen Wilson is good friends with 2020 CG RJ Hampton. Ranked #4 in the class. Be cool if he somehow recruited him hard to Michigan

If June 15th is first day to contact prospects in the 2020 class, how do so many have "offers" already. Also how have coaches already visited with these players?

The NCAA rules are that coaches can’t contact players.  It allows for recruits to contact coaches before June 15th.  Coaches go watch the players without talking to them.  I’m sure some work around the rule like talk to themselves out loud that they would give an offer to number x that they just watched or allow it to leak to someone with ties to a recruit.
