      He already has an offer? The coaches must've seen something they really liked.

          RB or LB?

          I trust the staff, but given his mid level offers, I wonder what the coaches saw in him?

            Here's his midseason highlights.

            Kid flies around and hits big. I'd gladly take an early commit from him. There is no way this kid stays unranked after people see him this season.

              Isn't this the high school literally across the street from Michigan Stadium?

                  Then I guess we'll have to lock him up early, lol.

                    being only a junior it's possible he just hasn't got enough film/camp visits to bump up rankings and offers.

                        Looks really nice. If he struggles adding weight, I could see him playing a similar role to what Tranquil has thus far.

                          Indeed.

                          It's an ENORMOUS high school. Surprised they don't crank more talent honestly.

                            yup, Skyline (the school Daelin Hayes goes to) was established in 2008 because Pioneer and nearby Huron High Schools were so overcrowded.

                            Pioneer are undefeated this year and are 4-0. They got Saline HS in a few weeks which should be a great matchup

                              Recruiting: In-state prospects see U-M defeat UNLV

                              Several players from nearby Ann Arbor Pioneer made the trip, including 2017 athlete Antjuan Simmons. The 6-1, 200-pounder has excelled on both sides of the ball this fall, and could be a candidate for a Michigan offer down the road. Previously plying his trade primarily as a running back, he’s been most impressive as an outside linebacker for Pioneer in 2015.

                              Simmons spoke with running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley (whose son, Terius, is Simmons’ teammate at Pioneer) and recruiting coordinator Erik Campbell while in town. He’s made several past visits to Ann Arbor, including for the Wolverines’ annual “Barbecue at the Big House” recruiting event in early August, and is building a rapport with the Michigan staff.

                                "The coaching staff, the players, all around it was amazing," he said. "The fan base, just everything from the tour guide to the fans, it was just crazy.

                                "I only got a small taste of it," Simmons added regarding a Notre Dame football experience. "I haven't seen what it's like in a rivalry game under the lights. I can't even imagine what that's like. I have to come back down to see it."

                                  sounds like he might be returning for USC with that last statement.

                                    Is it just me, or is every recruit being compared to Tranquill lately? lol

                                        Ohio state offered. Meyer must have read his quotes on his ND visit.

                                          It's still extremely early in the 2017 process.

                                                    Simmon's is one of the hotter prospects recently when he received 10 additional offers in about a 3 week time period. These are the teams that have offered since the first post was last updated.

                                                      He's got an offer from 19th ranked Toledo.

                                                      This tells me all I need to know about the kid.

                                                          Strange that he doesn't have an offer from Michigan yet. Pioneer High is literally kitty corner to Michigan Stadium..

                                                                  Our Co-Camp Pride MVP's were Ann Arbor Pioneer 2017 RB/LB Antjuan Simmons and Orchard Lake Saint Mary's 2017 WR/CB Kahlee Hamler.

                                                                  It was a relatively short and sweet performance by Ann Arbor Pioneer 2017 RB/LB Antjuan Simmons, who worked out at RB in position drills and 1 on 1's. Simmons with a Class of 2017 high, 34 offers was the last person with something to prove on Saturday, but he showed up and touched up on his skills. Simmons is so quick and fluid in all his movements and with a frame that is filling up nicely for a high school Junior, the physical tools are there too. Simmons performed at RB in 1 on 1's and on most every drill was wide open on his routes.
                                                                  What did Davonte do?

                                                                                          1. Excellent identifiers of talent
                                                                                          2. Not afraid to jump in the deep end once they see something they want
                                                                                          3. Very confident in their scouting...there have been MANY times they jumped in on a kid when nobody else was, only to watch the kid blow up and realize our guys really do know their shit, and were just ahead of the curve.

                                                                                          This kid's going to blow up, and the idea of him playing LB at 6'0 225 lbs with his speed, instincts and ferocity sounds pretty damn good to me.

                                                                                          Comment
