Michigan football fans are getting ready for The Game, but the Wolverines are trending with crystal balls for a pair of key recruits. 

Fans have been asking why Michigan football hasn’t been doing better on the recruiting trail with all the success on the field in 2021, but with the latest crystal ball projection, fans might stop asking that question.

Keon Sabb is a former five-star recruit and he’s ranked 80th overall in the 247 sports composite rankings. The Wolverines were a top-3 finalist for the big-time defensive back and after he committed to Clemson, there could be a flip coming — at least according to Steve Wiltfong.

Wiltfong is the leading national recruiting analyst for 247 sports and when he drops a crystal ball, people pay attention and he flipped his prediction from Clemson to Michigan this morning.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound safety would be a huge addition to the 2022 recruiting class and he is on campus this weekend for a visit. Wiltfong used a confidence level of five, which isn’t high on the scale of 1-10 but it’s still good news for the Wolverines.

And it wasn’t the only projection to go Michigan’s way.

The Wolverines have been pushing to flip another defensive back and that’s Zeke Berry. Berry was committed to Arizona at one time but opened his recruitment back up and it was seen as a two-team battle between Michigan football and Oregon.

Berry has been in Ann Arbor this weekend for his final official visit and according to a slew of crystal ball projections, Berry will be committing in Ann Arbor. Brandon Huffman of 247 sports even indicated a commitment could come this weekend.

Wiltfong joined Huffman in making a crystal ball prediction and both did so with confidence levels of eight. Sam Webb and Steve Lorenz of The Michigan Insider put in picks too.

Berry is ranked 227th in the 247 sports composite rankings and at 6-foot, 185 pounds, Berry is a versatile prospect and would be a nice piece to add, along with Sabb on the back end. EJ Holland of The Wolverine also hinted at a big weekend.

Michigan only signed one safety in the 2021 class and with Daxton Hill probably leaving for the NFL, along with Brad Hawkins graduating, U-M will need more numbers so I can see both coming.
