In our latest Michigan Wolverines news roundup, we touch on Michigan football recruiting, recap hockey against Notre Dame, and more. 

There hasn’t been a ton happening for Michigan football on the recruiting trail this week as the dead period is still in effect.

The Michigan Wolverines did make the cut list for a number of prospects this week, including Jordan Shipp of Providence Day. He’s a three-star wide receiver and teammate of five-star QB target Jadyn Davis.


Michigan football also made the top four on Friday of three-star cornerback Kenny Woseley. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder is ranked No. 381 overall in the 2024 class. Penn State appears to be the favorite and has a 93-percent chance to wind up with the Nittany Lions. He’s expected to announce his decision on March 3.


However, there is some really promising news for Michigan football on the recruiting trail and that’s the fact that five-star safety KJ Bolden in the 2024 class says that he wants to take another visit to the Michigan Wolverines according to EJ Holland of The Wolverine.

Bolden is out of Buford, Georgia, where Michigan football just landed a commitment from 2025 linebacker Mantrez Walker. However, Bolden is going to be an extremely difficult pull for the Wolverines. Georgia is the favorite right now and a number of heavy hitters are in the mix.

Another visit to campus is promising though and if Michigan football then gets him back for an official visit in the summer, you never know.

Steve Clinkscale has been a star on the recruiting trail this cycle for Michigan football and he’s the primary recruiter here too.

Michigan Wolverines tie in hockey with Notre Dame

After going eight straight games without a loss, the Michigan hockey team has now gone three straight games without a win as the Wolverines tied Notre Dame 3-3 on Friday night in Yost Arena in a battle of top-20 teams.

Thanks to a third-period goal by Adam Fantilli, the fourth-ranked Michigan Wolverines were able to salvage a 3-3 tie which is enough to clinch home-ice advantage for the Big Ten quarterfinals next week.

TJ Huges and Gavin Brindley scored the other goals for Michigan hockey in the tie. Erik Portillo managed 26 saves and allowed three goals. Michigan and Notre Dame will face off again on Saturday night at 8 PM EST on the Big Ten Network.
