Michigan prospect Brandon Smith is set to make his commitment in a week on Monday May 21st. The 5-star inside linebacker has yet to announce a top five for his commitment, but has been heavily pursued by Michigan, Florida State, Texas A&M, Alabama, and Notre Dame along with Big Ten rivals Ohio State and Penn State. 247sports.com predicts the massive (6-foot-4, 223 pounds) Mineral, Va. native will choose the Nittany Lions. But how could a linebacker give up the chance to be coached by the great Don Brown? Stay tuned, folks.
This part of the journey started as little kid. 🙏🏾📚🏈

Wide receiver David Bell from Warren Central in Indianapolis Indiana is planning on taking a visit to Ann Arbor soon as he tries to narrow down his options in the following months. The 4-star recruit has been recruited by Jim Harbaugh, graduate assistant Roy Roundtree, and Indianapolis native and 2018 linebacker signee Cam McGrone.
Currently Michigan has no wide receiver commits from the 2019 class, but have a total of 14 receivers on their roster. If Bell were to become a Wolverine, he would join the young standout receivers such as Donovan Peoples-Jones, Tarik Black, and Nico Collins.
Michigan commit earns elite status
4-star pro-style quarterback commit Cade McNamara competed in the Las Vegas Elite 11 Regional on Saturday. The future Wolverine not only earned MVP honors at the camp, but also earned an invitation to the Elite 11 finals in Los Angeles on June 1. McNamara tweeted out “I’ve been working for this opportunity for a long time.”
Elite 11 quarterbacks have been common at Michigan. Some former finalists include Michigan sophomore Dylan McCaffrey, freshman Joe Milton, junior Brandon Peters, and junior Shea Patterson. There’s no doubt that head coach Jim Harbaugh likes his quarterbacks elite.
