Of the eight visitors this weekend only three remain uncommitted to Michigan, Frank Clark, Leilon Willingham, and Stefan McClure.
I thought I would provide some information on each so that we can assess our chances.
Frank Clark, TE/LB, Glenville HS, Ohio - Things to consider: Glenville is well known for not sending players to Michigan. He is 6'3" 205 which is a bit undersized for a TE, so Michigan is recruiting him for LB. Our competition is North Carolina (visited 12/10), MSU (visited 1/15), and Penn St. (visit scheduled 1/28, no offer yet). Assuming the other schools are recruiting him as a TE, North Carolina already has 2 in the class (including former Michigan recruit Jack Tabb), MSU also has 2 in the class, and Penn St. has one. I suspect it is between us and State since Carolina has signed 2 since the visit and Penn State hasn't offered.
Leilon Willingham, LB, Mullen HS, Colorado - Things to consider: Mullen is one of the top football powers in the country, with D1 players every year. Mullen will have five players this year receive D1 scholarships. Current Wolverine Steve Watson is a Mullen alum. Our competition is Texas A&M verbal commitment (no visit), Arizona St. (9/24 visit), Washington (10/29 visit), and Colorado (1/15 visit). I believe our top competition is Colorado since they are local and a recent visit. Texas A&M received his verbal without a campus visit because his best friend is a RB there, but he canceled his visit there to visit us. The other visits are too far in the past to be considered strong competition.
Stefan McClure, CB, Vista HS, California - Things to consider: One of the few Army All-American players still uncommitted. One of the top players in San Diego county, Brady Hoke has been recruiting him for two years. McClure is good friends with former Vista great and Michigan star Leon Hall. Our competition is Washington (9/10), Colorado (10/2 visit), Oregon St (11/21 visit), Boise St. (12/15 visit), UCLA (unofficial visit 1/15), California (no visit), and San Diego St (no official visit). Top competition seems to be California and UCLA despite the fact that McClure replaced an official visit to UCLA with his visit to Michigan. He has unofficially visited both UCLA & Cal.
What do you guys think?
