Five-star Michigan football recruit Domani Jackson talked about the Wolverines and called U-M his dream school once again. 

In terms of flipping the commitment of five-star cornerback Domani Jackson, Michigan football is seemingly making progress.

And whatever happens with Jackson, it won’t have anything to do with a lack of effort as Jackson tells EJ Holland of The Wolverine that the staff has been recruiting him hard, led by head coach Jim Harbaugh himself.

"“They hit me up every day and see what’s going on with me,” Jackson said. “It’s not really recruiting anymore. It’s about everyday life now. I get along with mostly everyone that’s there. Coach Harbaugh hits me up, and Coach Clink talks to me every day.”"

Jackson is hurt right now and isn’t playing but is taking in his team’s high school games and being supportive. The injury shouldn’t have a long-term impact and everyone still sees Jackson, who is ranked as the No. 6 overall prospect in 2022, as someone who can make an immediate impact.

It’s also clear that new cornerbacks coach Steve Clinkscale has made headway with Jackson. Jackson’s dad is from Ohio and so is Clink. Plus, the Wolverines have been dominating on defense which doesn’t hurt, or the fact that Michigan football is 7-0.

Also, Jackson once again called Michigan his dream school, even though he’s committed to USC.

"“Our relationship is really good,” Jackson said. “When he first took over as the position coach, he had me on the radar. He always tried to build up that relationship because he knew I was interested in Michigan and that’s my dream school. He’s trying to make it a dream come true.”"

Can Michigan football flip Jackson?

Things are a dumpster fire right now at USC but the Trojans have expressed interest in some former NFL head coaches and that hire could have an impact on Jackson.

Jackson is visiting Alabama this weekend but the Tide doesn’t seem like a really serious contender in this recruitment. Of course, that could change.

But right now, you have to like Michigan football’s position in this recruitment. I’m not sure what would push Jackson to the point of flipping his commitment, yet the Wolverines are doing everything right, and hopefully, it’s just a matter of time.

If Damani wants to make his dream come true, he’s the only thing standing in the way, because Michigan football wants him as bad as any recruit in the 2022 class and is recruiting him that way.
