Michigan adds second OL transfer commitment


Michigan added Stanford OL transfer Myles Hinton to the schedule Saturday night, he announced via his Instagram account. The former five-star contender chose to leave the Cardinal program shortly after former head coach David Shaw stepped down.

Myles, the younger brother of former Wolverine Chris Hinton, was a huge target for Michigan on the recruiting trail when he was originally pursued in the 2020 cycle. He joins LaDarius Henderson, a transfer from Arizona State, as transfer picks for Sherrone Moore and his company.

Hinton is ranked as a four-star (90 rating) according to the 247Sports team.

247Sports Scouting Report: Big articulated, tall, broad-shouldered offensive lineman who plays big. Bends well with light feet despite heavy frame. Skillful with the ability to pull and locate second level defenders. Plays with balance on contact. Effectively engages the hips. Technically polished with a clean pass set and advanced hand placement. Has natural strength and looks like it is still maturing. Has NFL pedigree. Missed most of the junior season with an injury. Competition rarely puts him to the test. Be careful not to get too heavy.

Michigan enters the final stretch of the 2023 recruiting class, hovering around the Top20 in the 247Sports Team Recruiting Rankings with a class heavy on senior prospects on both sides of football.

The Wolverines are still led by four-star Texas defenseman Enow Etta, along with four-star Evan Link (OL), Cole Cabana (RB), and Amir Herring (OL), among others.

One area the staff has focused heavily on is in Ohio, home to rival state Ohio. With two wins in a row over the Buckeyes, Michigan believes they can begin to make the old recruiting stronghold one again. They currently have a trio of November commits from the state and have a few more on their minds for both the 2023 and 2024 recruiting classes.

“It’s a top priority,” says the defensive backs coach Steve Clinkscale said of Ohio. “Really, to be honest, wherever we have connections and wherever there are talented footballers is an extreme priority. And Ohio, always just down the street – I’m from Ohio and I know football is at a high level there. And we certainly want to continue to respond to that.

“The different players we have on our team from Ohio have had a big impact on us. So we’ll keep doing that. Rebuild those relationships and keep bringing those players here and showing them what we’re all about. And things have been going pretty well here lately. So we want to continue that trend and continue with the ’24 class and whoever and finish the ’23 class.
