It’s looking like Tuesday is going to be a very important day for Michigan basketball and football. Of course, John Beilein’s Wolverines are hosting Michigan State (more on that later), but for now we focus on a handful of key football recruits who will be at the Crisler Center for the game.
Cass Technical High School in Detroit, Mich., has traditionally been a pipeline program for the state of Michigan, and three of its top prospects through the next two years are expected to be in attendance Tuesday.

Four-star offensive guard Michael Onwenu is rated by 247Sports.com as one of the best at his position in the 2016 class. He gained an offer from Alabama on Feb. 14 and has standing offers from Ohio State, Michigan State and Illinois.
Three-star wide receiver Demetic Vance received an offer from Michigan State on a Feb. 1 visit. East Lansing seems like the most likely destination for Vance. This will be his first visit to Ann Arbor, and he does not hold an offer from the Wolverines.
Four-star 2017 wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones is rated as the nation’s No. 2 receiver and best prospect in the state of Michigan by 247Sports. Peoples-Jones has taken two unofficial visits to Michigan, though he doesn’t hold on offer from the Wolverines.
Additionally, Michigan will be playing host to 2016 targets wide receiver Donnie Corley (Wyandotte, Mich.) and defensive end Khalid Kareem (Farmington Hills, Mich.).
Corley’s visit to Michigan (first reported by Steve Lorenz) comes on the heels of visits to Ohio State and Michigan State. The second-ranked player in the state of Michigan has earned a four-star rating from 247Sports. This will be his third time on campus since receiving an offer in October 2014.
Kareem’s visit (first reported by Clint Brewster) is a heavily anticipated one. An almost sure thing for Michigan State, Kareem seems to be very close to tying the knot with the Spartans. This will be his first time on campus since attending a camp in June 2014.
