University of Michigan In-State Recruiting RecapFootball  |
Breaking down Michigan's 2016 in-state recruiting class:
Lavert Hill, Detroit King CB – Hill’s recruitment lasted until National Signing Day, but after decommitting, the belief among the majority of recruiting analysts was that Michigan was always the front runner land the four-star cornerback. A big reason for Michigan to be the assumed front-runner for Hill was that his older brother, Delano Hill is currently a safety for the Wolverines.
Hill is a true shutdown cornerback who could find himself playing early on in Ann Arbor and has drawn the comparison of current Michigan cornerback, Jourdan Lewis, who had a breakout season in 2015.
Mike Onwenu, Detroit Cass Tech OL – Onwenu has been committed to the Wolverines since the Brady Hoke era at Michigan and never really wavered his commitment despite taking a visit to Michigan State late in the recruiting process.
Onwenu fits exactly what Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh likes to do and should fit in perfectly at guard for the Wolverines, opening running lanes for running backs for years to come for Michigan. Don’t be surprised if you see Onwenu play on the defensive line as well as he proved to be a force against the run in high school.
