Friday Recruiting Roundup: Johnson Sets Decision Date


Welcome back to this week’s recruiting roundup. At the end of every week, The Wolverine Lounge will be here to give you all the latest news in Michigan recruiting.

Here’s this week’s installment:

Johnson Making Decision Monday

The top target left for the Wolverines in the 2020 class, 4-Star TE Theo Johnson (ON.), was in Ann Arbor for The Game on Saturday. “Honestly I really just went to see the game, we didn’t do any recruiting stuff or nothing like that.”, Johnson told 247Sports.

The top player in Canada will be announcing his commitment Monday.

Johnson’s Crystal Ball projections remain in Penn State’s favor but Michigan continuing to be in the conversation is a good sign for the Wolverines.

247Sports Composite ranks Johnson as the No. 97 player overall, the No. 3 TE and the top player in Ontario.

2021 DE Enjoys Michigan Visit

4-Star SDE Aaron Armitage (NJ.) made his second trip to Ann Arbor and thoroughly enjoyed his visit, he told The Michigan Insider.

The New Jersey defensive end spent time with DL coach Shaun Nua along with head coach Jim Harbaugh and was able to reconnect with his former teammate, freshman defensive end David Ojabo.

Armitage sits as the no. 152 prospect overall, the no. 9 SDE and the no. 2 player overall in New Jersey.

2022 CB Leaves Ann Arbor Impressed

Another New Jersey prospect in town last weekend was 4-star CB Jaeden Gould (NJ.) who came away from his visit impressed.

Gould was there with two of his high school teammates defensive tackle Tywone Malone and safety Jordan Morant.

The 6-2 corner is currently not ranked by 247Sports Composite and does not have any Crystal Ball projections.

Coaches Visit Multiple Prospects

Defensive Line coach Shaun Nua will be back on the recruiting trail this week doing in home visits with prospects including 3-Star SDE Commit 2020 Aaron Lewis (NJ.), 4-Star WDE 2020 Jaylen Harrell (FL.), and 3-Star SDE Commit 2020 Kris Jenkins (MD.).

Defensive Coordinator Don Brown checked in on  2020 4-Star OT Ozzy Trapilo (MA.), who is currently committed to Boston College. Michigan has kept tabs on the Boston tackle, despite him being committed to the Eagles since June.

Offensive Line coach Ed Warinner was in Colorado checking up with 2020 4-Star OT Andrew Gentry, 2020 3-Star OC Commit Reece Atteberry (CO.), 2020 4-Star OT and Washington commit Roger Rosengarten (CO.), and 2022 RB Gavin Sawchuk (CO.).
