Carter Dunaway Re-Opens his Recruitment

In a move that came a bit out of left field, longtime 2017 commitment and Brother Rice (MI) TE Carter Dunaway has re-opened his recruitment after speaking with Jim Harbaugh about his recruitment and future with Michigan.

Dunaway was the first commitment of the 2017 class for the Wolverines and, at times, has flashed his potential as a blocking tight end at the next level. But he was one of the biggest projects in the class. And that looks to be a project UM would rather take on as a preferred walk-on as, from his tweet, Harbaugh clearly thought it would be better for him to look elsewhere for a full scholarship.

As a legacy recruit whose brother is already a walk-on at Michigan, I wouldn’t rule out Dunaway recommitting to Michigan closer to NSD as a PWO, if he’s unable to land a good enough offer on the trail.

As for where Michigan will turn their attention to for the tight end spot in 2017, Inderkum (CA) Josh Falo looks to be #1, 2 and 3 on the board. Other names the staff will likely keep an eye on includes Major Tennison and Lecitus Smith, as well as a couple top tight ends committed elsewhere at this point.
