With the first ever early signing period coming up next week (December 20th-22nd), Michigan is set to host its final visit prior to the three-day extravaganza. Though it won’t have the same star power as last week’s, there is plenty to pay attention to during this visit as all three non-Michigan commits are names to watch heading down the final stretch.
Check out who’s expected to visit Michigan this weekend:
WR Chris Olave
Olave has been scheduled to officially visit Ann Arbor this weekend for awhile now. And it’s one to watch with a wide receiver spot clearly open in this class. Utah and Ohio State look to be the biggest competition here but this visit could do wonders for Michigan’s chances.
UPDATE: According to The Wolverine’s Brandon Brown, Olave is trying to reschedule his official visit as he’s unable to make it in this weekend ($).
Sherwood actually made it onto my BGRC back in June after making an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor in the summer. However, he ended up committing to Auburn later on in the summer and looked to be a name to scratch off the list. But that’s not what the staff was thinking as they’ve clearly continued to recruit the four star safety. With this visit and a need for another safety in this class, this is a visit to pay attention to.
TE Ben VanSumeren (Maybe)
After missing out on Tommy Tremble, Michigan quickly went to its next name on the board which just so happened to be an in-state prospect. VanSumeren is a versatile tight end that could play multiple positions at the next level. But will it be with Michigan? He committed to Iowa on November 10th but this offer looks like it could have him thinking about it. According to The Wolverine’s Brandon Brown, if Van Sumeren makes it to town, it might be a sign he ends up flipping ($).
