The 2018 season is halfway over and recruiting is just getting started.
With recruits like Zach Harrison still on the board for Michigan, despite an already loaded 2019 class, the Wolverines continue to build one of its deepest classes in the Jim Harbaugh era.
On top of that, recruiting for the future remains an initiative as Michigan is hosting a few of its top 2020 targets this weekend.
Here’s the weekly roundup.
One of Michigan’s top targets will not be visiting this weekend as previously anticipated. Charlotte (N.C.) Harding 5-star athlete Quavaris Crouch, the No. 28 overall player in the 2019 class and No. 2 athlete, has rescheduled his visit to Ann Arbor for later this fall according to 247Sports. Crouch said last week that he was excited for the visit.
Crystal Lake (Ill.) HS 4-star offensive tackle Trevor Keegan is still expected to visit this weekend as Michigan plays Wisconsin on the regular season’s biggest stage — College GameDay. Keegan is the No. 16 offensive tackle in the 2019 class.
Michigan hosted Marietta (Ga.) 2020 4-star QB Harrison Bailey last weekend on an unofficial visit. Bailey is the No. 60 overall player in the 2020 class, the No. 3 ranked QB and No. 7 ranked player in the state of Georgia. Michigan are heavy favorites to land their top QB target although Tennessee and Alabama remain in the picture.
The staff hosted two other players on unofficial visits this past weekend. Columbus (Ohio) 2020 3-star wide receiver Qian Magwood and Helotes (Texas) 2020 4-star guard Logan Parr were both in attendance on Saturday for Michigan’s 42-21 victory over Maryland. Magwood said he enjoyed his vist — while Parr said it exceeded his expectations.
Magwood is the No. 111 WR in the 2020 class and the No. 20 overall player in the state of Ohio. Meanwhile, Parr is the No. 4 guard nationally and the No. 18 player overall in Texas.
Columbus (Ohio) Northland 2020 4-star wide receiver commit Kalil Branham recently spoke to 24/7 sports about his excitement to play for Michigan. Branham said that Michigan was always his dream school and that after he got a call from Jim Harbaugh, “there was no reason to talk to any other school.” Branham is the No. 59 WR in the 2020 class and the No. 6 overall player in Ohio.
