The Michigan football staff begins its recruitment in the Midwest, hoping to target players within four to five hours of Ann Arbor. But when they find a player from farther away with ties to the area, that's just as good.

Cornerback Nick Watkins (Dallas/Bishop Dunne) is one of those prospects. His father is former Detroit Lions cornerback Bobby Watkins Jr., and Nick's mother’s side of the family still lives in the Detroit area.

That connection, coupled with Watkins' skill set, made him the most recent offer in the Wolverines' 2014 class. Michigan has 25 offers out for that year, with six in the secondary.
