LIVE BLOG: Michigan 1-Day Elite camp –

ANN ARBOR Michigan starts off an important recruiting weekend Friday as it hosts its 1-Day Elite camp. That will be followed on Saturday with the Big Man Big House camp.

Fridays 1-day Elite Camp is expected to draw several big names from the 2019 and 2020 recruiting classes, while Saturdays Big Man Big House camp is designedsolely foroffensive and defensive linemen.

Land of 10s Rachel Lenzi and Kevin Goheen will be on hand both days to bring you updates on recruits for the 2018 class and beyond.

7:04 p.m.: Jim Harbaugh spoke with reporters after a thorough meet-and-greet with players and parents. Here are some of the highlights of his discussion:

All 19 players in the freshman class who werent January enrollees are expected to be on campus by Saturday. A few such as DT Aubrey Solomon, DE Luiji Vilain, S Brad Hawkins and WR Nico Collins arrived a week or more ago.

Theyve got to be here tomorrow when orientation starts, Harbaugh said. Say a prayer that all the cars and planes operate effectively. God willing theyll get here safely.

If a player wants to participate in another sport as well as football, Harbaugh is all for it.

Incoming freshman LB Jordan Anthony also played baseball at IMG Academy and has expressed interest in joining manager Erik Bakichs team.

Very much we would embrace it., Harbaugh said. He is an elite football player and an elite baseball player. When theyre elite at two sports, right when football season is over, well let them go to another sport.

Harbaugh stressed that a player couldnt go play another sport if he was just going to another player. The player needs to be, Harbaugh said: elite-elite.

He mentioned WR Oliver Martin as another possible two-sport athlete. Martins second sport, however, would be swimming.

[Martin]s that elite-elite. Jordan Anthony is elite-elite. We may have somebody who wants to wrestle, too. Thats a possibility, Harbaugh said.

We feel that the athletic reps that they get when theyre competing in the other sports are really valuable, and we encourage it.

Senior fullback Khalid Hill and sophomore offensive lineman Michael Onwenu were put on notice this offseason that they needed to lose weight before the start of training camp. Hill was listed at 263 pounds and Onwenu 350 pounds on last seasons roster. Offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Tim Drevno mentioned in April that Onwenu was up to372 pounds.

Harbaugh said Friday that each is getting to their weight goals (which are being kept in-house) but theyre not there yet.

As a coach youd like to see it happen faster but I think they understand now that things have amped up, Harbaugh said.

There could be some roster subtractionsby the time camp begins on July 31 but Harbaugh isnt ready to what those possible attritions would be.

Its been my experience that those usually happen right before [camp], Harbaugh said. They usually happen, historically, the day before winter conditioning starts and the day before training camp starts. I usually sit at my desk by my phone and wait for it to ring.

5:01 p.m.: Michigans 1-day elite camp has officially closed, and Jim Harbaugh has bid the campers farewell. But before he left, he gave them some advice:

Avoid the fun stuff! Harbaugh said. If something looks fun, dont do it. Say no. For every three nos, say one yes.

1:01 p.m.: Theyre about to return from lunch at todays camp; about an hour ago, Michigan passing game coordinator Pep Hamilton offered the campers some good advice:

During the lunch break, several of Michigans current players and incoming freshmen and early enrollees discussed offseason workouts. Josh Metellus, who will play at safety this fall, said his experience playing at the Viper position in the Orange Bowl prepared him for playing safety.

It got me comfortable and showed me that I can play with the best guys in the country, Metellus said.
