Michigan Football recruiting is in high gear under Brady Hoke and his outstanding staff of assistant coaches. The Wolverines have 19 commits, including 11 members of the ESPNU 150. The pied piper of the group is none other than 5-star QB Shane Morris (Warren, Michigan). He has played a big part in helping secure the services of his fellow commits. Included among the 19 commits are 3 of the top 5 offensive guard prospects in the country (1. David Dawson 4. Kyle Bosch 5. Patrick Kugler). Michigan has also received commitments from two of the top 10 offensive tackle prospects in the country (9. Logan Tuley-Tillman 10. Chris Fox). Two players they would love to add to the class are Leon McQuay and LaQuon Treadwell. Leon McQuay (Seffner, Florida)  III is ranked #34 overall by ESPNU and is considered the #3 safety prospect in the nation. McQuay III checks in at 6-foot-2, 183 pounds and was told by the Michigan coaches that he could play safety or cornerback. He visited Michigan’s campus over the weekend of May 18-20 and according to reports the visit was a very positive one for the standout safety.      Click on the images to enlarge.

LaQuon Treadwell (Crete, Illinois) is participating in a 7-on-7 event in Auburn Hills this Memorial Day weekend. One of the other 7-on-7 teams at the event is Shane Morris’s Maximum Exposure team. Treadwell will have time to hang out with Morris, who is hoping to lure the elite WR to Michigan. Treadwell checks in at 6-foot3, 183 pounds and is considered one of the Top 5 WR prospects in the country and is ranked #42 overall by ESPNU. Michigan is in very good shape with him on the recruiting trail. [Logan Tuley-Tillman torches Ohio State recruiting letter and wears a sweet watch] Meanwhile some of Michigan’s current commits are receiving attention from other schools. David Dawson is considered the #1 offensive guard prospect and ranked #92 overall by ESPNU. Those lofty rankings are sure to generate phone calls from coaches across the country. Dawson keeps his Twitter followers updated and recently caused some fretting when he tweeted that Les Miles had just called him (you can follow Dawson on Twitter @D3_MrUnderated_). Don’t fear Michigan fans he has already repelled inquires from Alabama and Florida and there will be more to follow. Dawson has said numerous times that his commitment to Michigan is rock-solid. Mike McCray II, who is an Ohio State legacy, recently received an offer from the Buckeyes. McCray struck quickly on Twitter as he reaffirmed his commitment to Michigan. McCray II is considered the #7 outside linebacker prospect and is ranked #75 overall by ESPNU. As mentioned above, Shane Morris plays a key role in this recruiting class and one of them is as an ambassador for Michigan Football on Twitter. He quickly helped disspell any worries about McCray bailing on his Michigan commitment when he posted this chat on his twitter feed (@S_Morris12). Here are some uncommitted recruits you should be aware of. Su’a Cravens (Murrieta, California) – He is ranked #5 overall by rivals.com and #15 by ESPNU. The 6-foot-1, 205 pond Cravens is considered the top safety prospect in the country. He is set to visit Michigan this week and has set an announcement date for June 6th. The general consensus is that Cravens will end up at USC, but Michigan’s coaches will have a chance to sway him during the upcoming visist. Maurice Hurst Jr. (Westwood, Massachusetts) Hurst has a Michigan offer in hand and will be visiting the campus this weekend. He is a 6-foot-2, 285 pound defensive tackle prospect. Hurst is a 3-star recruit and ranked the #24 DT by rivals and #34 by ESPNU. Henry Poggi (Baltimore, Maryland) Many thought Poggi would be an early Michigan commit. He decided to slow things down and take a few visits. He is one of the top defensive tackle recruits in the country. He is a 4-star recruit and checks in at 6-foot-3, 245 pounds.
