Michigan is hosting three players this weekend, WR Van Jefferson, CB Darius Adams and WR Deontay Burnett.  All three are currently committed elsewhere, which will require coach Harbaugh to flip these players.  Of the three they may have the best shot with Jefferson.

Signs are pointing positive with TE/DE Tyrone Wheatley, Jr right now but he is still undecided.  I’m hearing UCLA, USC and Alabama are all expecting Wheatley to sign with Michigan and he also cancelled his trip to Oregon this weekend.

Unfortunately, things are not trending as well with RB Mike Weber.  From what I’ve found out it appears as if he is going to stick with Ohio State.  It’s not 100% certain but I would be surprised if he flipped back at this point.  The fact Michigan offered Iowa commit, RB Karan Higdon within the past 24 hours also supports what I’m hearing.

TE Chris Clark appears to be leaning toward UCLA, which is what I have been hearing for a while now.  I will be very surprised if he signs with Michigan this Wednesday.

Michigan did make the final two for CB Iman Marshall, however you can expect Marshall to sign with USC.  I have been firm in this stance despite the optimism of others.  Coach Harbaugh and his staff did a great job recruiting Marshall but in the end nothing was going to pull him away from the Trojans.
