Current Michigan Commitment About to Get 5th Star

We all know that the star system is not a great indication of future success for a football player, but it is the only ranking system we have to measure recruits.  What is really important is a good coaches evaluation and Jim Harbaugh is one of he best at player evaluation and development.

One of his current committments for the class of 2016, Michael Onwenu, a 6’3″ 365 pound offensive guard from Detroit Cass Tech is one player who many recruiting experts think will add a 5th star following his performance at The Opening this weekend.

Here is what one recruiting expert had to say about Onwenu:


Current Rating: No. 6 Offensive Guard, No. 155 overall

Case to Add a Fifth Star 

Similar to Johnson, Michael Onwenu is a 4-star guard prospect who impressed all week in drills.

From a physical standpoint, Onwenu sticks out at 6’3”, 365 pounds. However, he proved that he’s athletic enough to carry his weight and use it to his advantage.

As Simmons notes, Onwenu won the majority of his reps and was among the most consistent performers in the trenches on either side of the ball.

The Michigan commitment has proven that he could be one of the rare interior offensive linemen who deserves consideration for a fifth star.


Here is the ridiculously over hyped Onewenu vs. Jonathon Cooper (Ohio State) that was making the rounds over the weekend.  While Michigan fan was patting itself on the back or this video, nobody seemed to notice Cooper tripped over his own two feet?
