As the 2018 season continues on, things are beginning to heat up on the Michigan recruiting front for Jim Harbaugh and his staff.

A number of prospects and commits were at the Big House two weeks ago to watch Michigan’s 38-13 beat down of Wisconsin.

5-star DE Zach Harrison (Ohio) …

was the most notable prospect in Ann Arbor that weekend. Harrison, the No. 5 player overall in the 2019 class and No. 1 in the state of Ohio currently has offers from Penn State and Ohio State along with Michigan.

However, Steve Lorenz of 247Sports wrote that the mood around the Michigan program is very positive about Harrison signing, and that Ohio State is pretty much out of the picture at this point.

4-star OT Trevor Keegan (Ill.) …

was also in attendance that night and his mother recently spoke to 247Sports about their visit. Keegan is the No. 138 player in the 2019 class and the No. 1 in the state of Illinois.

A few players from the 2020 and 2021 classes were also there.

4-star QB Jay Butterfield (CA), 4-star DE Darrion Henry (OH), 3-star DE Braiden McGregor (MI), 4-star LB Ethan West (VA), 3-star WR Devell Washington (MI), 3-star QB Beau Allen (KY), 3-star WR David Baker (IN), 3-star OT Grant Toutant (MI) , 4-star OT Garrett Dellinger (MI), and OLB prospect Yanni Karlaftis  all left the Big House buzzing about the win and the atmosphere at the Big House.

Commits Giles Jackson (CA)Joey Velazquez (OH), and Erick All (OH) were also in Ann Arbor for the game.

One player who was not in Ann Arbor that was scheduled to be is 5-star RB Quavaris Crouch (NC). Crouch and Michigan mutually canceled  his visit and are looking to have him visit November 3rd vs. Penn State. Crouch said that the reason for postponing his visit had nothing to do with losing interest in the Wolverines.

Before Michigan battled Michigan State on Saturday afternoon, much was made of Devin Bush tearing up the Spartan midfield logo with his cleats.
