Spring practice rolls on with the game coming up next weekend. That means more recruiting visitors coming to town to see what Jim Harbaugh and his staff are like on a daily basis.
This week, the staff has already hosted a large group from Miami and is now expected to host a couple more out of towners as well as an in-state standout that’s starting to climb up every program’s board.
2017 DT Phillip Paea
Reported by Wolverine247 and Allen Trieu, Paea will make another trip to Ann Arbor this month. He’ll be returning next weekend as well for the spring game. With several visits this month alone, it’s obvious that Michigan is climbing up his list as he continues to grow familiar with the program and staff, especially Tony Tuioti.
2017 OG Jordan Reid
According to Scout’s Allen Trieu, Reid will make another short trip to Ann Arbor today ($). He holds an offer from Michigan and has for a couple months now but it’s unknown exactly where he sits on the staff’s board with so many other lineman on the board.
2017 S J’Marick Woods
According to Wolverine247’s Steve Lorenz, Woods moved his spring visit from the spring game on April 1st to today, the 24th, through the weekend ($). Having a player that is high on Michigan visit for three days, things could heat up here quickly.
2017 WR/TE Grant Calcaterra
Calcaterra told The Michigan Insider’s Sam Webb that he’s planning on visiting Ann Arbor on Monday, March 28th ($). This could be a visit to watch as he’s teammates with 2016 signee WR Dylan Kekoa Crawford, highly values education and is a hybrid tight end that Jim Harbaugh seems to love. If an offer comes through during the trip, UM could jump up his board.
2018 TE Judge Culpepper
UPDATE: Culpepper made his way up north to see Michigan just days after receiving an offer from the staff. And from the look of things, the trip went extremely well.
