Little more scuttlebutt on the class...

Tyler Friday remains one of Michigan's top overall targets.
Rivals.com
Here's a look at some Michigan recruiting trends on a scale of very likely to very unlikely.

Very Likely
It's VERY LIKELY that Michigan signee Aidan Hutchinson gets a significant bump in the next round of rankings by the Rivals.com staff.


RANK
5.8

-

NATIONAL
4
STATE
17
POSITION
AIDAN
HUTCHINSON
6'6" | 266 LBS | SDE
DIVINE CHILD
DEARBORN, MI
CLASS OF 2018

SIGNED LOI
2/21/2017
MICHIGAN
Currently listed outside of the Rivals250, Hutchinson is a virtual lock to climb well into that range. The 6-6, 266-pounder put on a show at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl last Saturday and registered four tackles and two sacks. He's currently listed as the No. 17 strongside defensive end nationally and the No. 4 player in Michigan but expect both of those standings to improve.

Fellow signees Cameron McGrone and Jalen Mayfield also played well in the Army Bowl and should receive a bump as well. McGrone is barely inside the Rivals250 at No. 238 and Mayfield will likely pick up that coveted fourth star.

Likely
It's LIKELY that Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep four-star strongside defensive end Tyler Friday ends up committing to Michigan.


RANK
6.0
64
NATIONAL
2
STATE
4
POSITION
TYLER
FRIDAY
6'3" | 260 LBS | SDE
DON BOSCO PREP
RAMSEY, NJ
CLASS OF 2018
UNDECIDED
The 6-3, 260-pounder is as quiet as they come but more and more buzz is building around him eventually committing to the Wolverines. As the No. 64 overall player in the country, Friday is extremely talented and with his build, he would compliment defensive linemen Aidan Hutchinson and Julius Welschof well.

Neutral
Things are still in a NEUTRAL stance between Georgia, Michigan and Michigan commit Otis Reese.


RANK
6.0
42
NATIONAL
7
STATE
2
POSITION
OTIS
REESE
6'2" | 195 LBS | OLB
LEE COUNTY
LEESBURG, GA
CLASS OF 2018

VERBAL COMMIT
6/18/2016
MICHIGAN
The 6-2, 195-pounder is currently Michigan's highest ranked commit at No. 42 overall nationally but he's been flirting with the hometown Dawgs for a while. He visited Athens several times throughout the fall and Georgia's trip to the national title game definitely has Reese intrigued.

He recently announced his upcoming official visits without dates there are clearly some heavy hitters on the list.


It definitely seems like a Michigan vs. Georgia battle but anytime programs like LSU and Clemson are involved they must be taken seriously. Reese's older brother plays at Central Michigan and the trip to Mt. Pleasant is likely just a chance to spend some time with big bro and enjoy the process.

Not Likely
It's NOT LIKELY that Michigan can convince Mission Viejo (Calif.) High four-star cornerback Olaijah Griffin to head to Ann Arbor.


RANK
6.0
38
NATIONAL
6
STATE
5
POSITION
OLAIJAH
GRIFFIN
6'0" | 172 LBS | CB
MISSION VIEJO
MISSION VIEJO, CA
CLASS OF 2018
UNDECIDED
The 6-0, 172-pound corner and son of Warren G was originally committed to UCLA but decided to open things up after the coaching changes in Westwood. The No. 5 cornerback nationally named Tennessee his leader two weeks after his official visit to Knoxville. Griffin said he thinks he will take an official visit to Florida the weekend of February 2. The schedule for January 12-26 has yet to be set, but Auburn is going to have him on campus one of those three weekends. USC and Michigan are two other teams in the mix and the Trojans are a real player due to location.

It's pretty likely that Griffin will officially visit Ann Arbor but it's going to be a tall task to convince him that U-M is where he should play.

Very Unlikely
It's VERY UNLIKELY that Michigan will have a shot with recently offered Tommy Bush out of Schertz (Texas) Clemens.


RANK
5.8

-

NATIONAL
50
STATE
60
POSITION
TOMMY
BUSH
6'5" | 185 LBS | WR
CLEMENS
SCHERTZ, TX
CLASS OF 2018
UNDECIDED
In fact it's a certainty that they won't. The 6-5, 185-pounder just picked up his Michigan offer within the past month but it's too little, too late. The No. 60 wide receiver in the country recently gave the latest on where things stand with U-M.

"They are out, sir," Bush said of the Wolverines. "There hasn't been any real contact with my family and I understand that since they offered so late. Best wishes to them."

Michigan is now in pursuit of just two wide receivers — Metairie (La.) Rummel four-star Ja'Marr Chase and, to a lesser extent, San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills three-star Chris Olave.

I never saw Hutchinson play football in person but if he is anything like he is in Lacrosse you have a good one. That dude is fast. He gave no space to any attackers behind the net, he would just run them out of bounds. He is a long strider that can blaze down the field.

6'6", 266 and can run on a HS lacrosse field? That's frightening.

He's a defenseman and they rarely will lead fast breaks but he will get the ball behind the net and streak up the field. Lacrosse is a pretty fast sport but it's not like you have the fastest athletes out there. But he looks like he has a an extra gear.

Mainevent you don't know jack shit about lacrosse. Defensemen in lacrosse play on half the field. Rarely do they cross midfield and only if a midfielder stays back.

A lacrosse field is 110 yards long and can be from 53 1/3 to 60 yards wide.
No big deal for a big guy to run. Like playing in a phone booth, right?
