West Bloomfield (Mich.) three-star cornerback Jamir Benjamin shared his top 10 schools on Thursday. The list includes Boston College, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Northwestern, Pitt, Tennessee and Western Michigan.
Benjamin is the No. 380 overall prospect and No. 41 cornerback in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 9 player in Michigan.
According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine, the Wolverines are leading for Benjamin’s commitment at 52.3%. He has taken two unofficial visits to Ann Arbor, most recently on Sept. 10.
RPM was released to the public in December. The On3 engineering group teamed up with Spiny.ai to create the industry’s first algorithm and machine learning-based product to predict where athletes will attend college.
It factors in machine learning, social sentiment, visits and historical trends. However, expert predictions are still a big piece of the RPM equation.
If Benjamin chooses Michigan, he would be the latest West Bloomfield connection to take his talents to the Big House. Wolverines running back Donovan Edwards played for West Bloomfield, while wide receivers coach Ron Bellamy was previously the school’s head coach.
A 5-foot-10, 170-pound defensive back, Benjamin has an On3 NIL Valuation of $6.1K. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
