Team 136 Best Guess Recruiting Class: November 19th

The 2014 class is just about done and the 2015 class is off to an extremely fast start. With 3 top 50 recruits already committed, Brady Hoke could have his best overall and smallest class here:

1. QB: 5* Kevin Dillman, 6\’4\’\’ 220lbs. La Marida, CA (La Marida HS)

\"\"
Kevin Dillman #10, QB

– One of the best athletes and quarterbacks in the country. The Swedish born signal caller is very similar to Colin Kaepernick and with the world of football moving to mobile QBs, he would be a great fit in the system. Rumor has it that if/when Michigan offers, Dillman could commit on the spot. He is a lifelong Tom Brady fan, which helps. It may take a little while because the coaching staff doesn\’t like to have too many QB offers out at a time.

ESPN 300 Rating: #70 overall, #3 QB

Michigan\’s Chances: Extremely High, if offered

Highlights

2. RB: 5* Damien Harris, 5\’11\’\’ 195lbs. Berea, KY (Madison Southern HS)

\"\"
Damien Harris #34, RB

-Possibly the #1 running back in the class and one of the top players in the country, Harris grew up a huge Michigan fan and now is living the dream of being committed there. He is just bigger, faster, and stronger than his competition and has an Arien Foster running style. There is a good chance he is the only running back in this class.

3. WR: 4* Brian Cole, 6\’2\’\’ 190lbs. Saginaw, MI (Heritage HS)

\"\"
Brian Cole #1, WR

-One of the top players in Michigan, Cole is a big play receiver that can stretch the field and go across the middle. He is starting to receive a ton interest from Michigan and is be a top recruit in the class. It looks like it could be a Michigan-Michigan State battle.

-The #1 WR and #3 overall prospect for 2015, Campbell is a 6\’4 receiver and defensive end that ran the fastest 40 yard dash at the 2013 Opening as a junior at 4.36 (also ran 4.37). This speed will be used as a go-to target for Wolverines as he will be a wide receiver.

\"\"
Tyrone Wheatley Jr. #9, TE/DE

-Son of former Michigan star running back, Tyrone Wheatley, TJ (as he is referred too) is one of the most physically gifted players in the 2015 class. He can dominate at both tight end and defensive end, and Michigan sees him playing either side of the ball. With his Dad in his ear, the Wolverines have a great chance.

\"\"
Sterling Jenkins, OT

– One of the best offensive tackles in the country, Jenkins is a monster of a man and has already been offered, and has real interest in Michigan. It also helps that the Wolverines are in need of tackles.

Jashon Cornell (via Rivals.com)

– The #1 prospect (according to ESPN), Cornell is a beast defensive end that disrupts just about every play as a sophomore and is very interested in Michigan. All of the big Wolverine commits in \’14 and \’15 are already in his ear, as well as the entire coaching staff. He has visited before and it looks like the Wolverines are at the top with Notre Dame on his list.

\"\"
Hjalte Froholdt #87, DE

He was living in Ohio with an O$U fan but was so happy to receive his Michigan offer that he began crying. He went back to Belgium for his junior season but is back in the states and looking to stay for good after he makes his decision in the next month or so.

\"\"
Brady Pallante #52 (via TheBigHouseReport.com)

-The Florida high school wrestling state champion is the first commit to Team 136. He is coming in 2014 on a grayshirt, so his scholarship will not count against the 2014 class. Scouts say he is very similar to Michigan alum, Mike Martin.

Offer: 2014 Grayshirt

Michigan\’s Chances: COMMITTED

Highlights

12. SAM/FS: 4* Tanner Muse, 6\’3\’\’ 215lbs. Belmont, NC (South Point HS)

\"\"
Tanner Muse #33, OLB

– One of the best athletes in the country, Muse is a beast that is already dominating his level of play. At Michigan, he would likely play a hybrid linebacker/safety role similar to Stevie Brown in 2009. His speed and aggressiveness will give defensive coordinators nightmares once he is in college shape.

– Another camper at the 2013 summer camp, Kinnel is rising fast on the recruiting boards. He is a very instinctive and athletic ball hawk that Mattison seems to love. Look out for him now that he has an offer. Im a really big fan of this kid already. With weight training, he could be a star.
