In our latest Michigan Wolverines roundup, we look at a huge recruiting weekend, a Big Ten title hockey game, and much more. 

If you follow Michigan football recruiting then you’ll have an idea of how important this weekend is for the Michigan Wolverines as a number of top recruits are slated to be on campus.

The most important of those recruits for Michigan football is five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis, the No. 2 quarterback in the 2024 class according to the 247 sports composite rankings.

Davis has been trending to Michigan football with crystal balls and the Michigan Wolverines have been viewed as the clear leader. But it’s time to close. The Wolverines can’t afford to miss on Davis as they did Dante Moore and they can’t afford to keep waiting either.

If Michigan football doesn’t close this weekend, it needs to start looking at other quarterbacks, because it can’t be left without one like it was in the 2023 class.

Beyond Davis, the Michigan Wolverines are hosting a number of other elite recruits this weekend including No. 1 EDGE in 2024 Dylan Stewart, and highly-touted Ohio running back Jordan Marshall, as well as Brady Prieskorn, a 6-foot-6 tight end ranked No. 2 overall in the state of Michigan for the 2024 class according to the 247 sports composite rankings.

It’s a big opportunity for Michigan football and the Wolverines need to take advantage.

Michigan hockey to play at Minnesota for Big Ten title

For the second straight year, the Michigan Wolverines will play at Minnesota for the Big Ten tournament title.

The Wolverines defeated the Gophers last year, winning the Big Ten title on their way to the Frozen Four. Michigan hockey dispatched Ohio State last weekend, which followed a 2-0 series sweep over Wisconsin in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament.

Michigan hockey and Minnesota will square off tonight at 8 PM EST on the Big Ten Network.

Mason Parris to wrestle for a national championship

Three Michigan Wolverines earned the right to be called NCAA wrestling All-Americans at the national tournament on Saturday. However, Michigan’s Mason Parris, the top-ranked heavyweight in the country, took it a step further and advanced to the national championship.

Parris earned a 16-1 technical fall over Iowa’s Tony Cassioppi, which clinched the second trip to finals night for the Michigan Wolverines standout.

Parris is now 32-0 on the season and will square off against Penn State’s Greg Kerkvliet on Saturday. Parris is 2-0 this season against him, including a win at the Big Ten championships.

Will Lewan (157) and Cameron Amine (165) also clinched All-American honors for the Michigan Wolverines, who have 51 points total, which has them in sixth place.
