Michigan football hosted five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis for a visit this weekend and after that, confidence is increasing in a commitment to the Wolverines. 

Heading into this weekend, we were saying that Michigan football needed to close with five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis.

As far as what that means, well it means different things to different people. I didn’t think Michigan football needed a commitment this weekend. It obviously didn’t get one.

According to what Sam Webb of The Michigan Insider wrote this morning, it doesn’t sound like there is a planned announcement date yet either.

However, the Wolverines definitely improved their position this weekend. There is no doubt about that. EJ Holland of The Wolverine indicated that in his wrap-up of the visit. Webb indicated the same thing. He also increased the confidence level of his crystal ball from seven to eight.

The visit was going to be important because it allowed Davis a chance to observe some things, especially new quarterbacks coach Kirk Campbell.

Campbell has been getting rave reviews on the recruiting trail from other highly-touted quarterbacks and it seems like he did well with Davis too, at least judging from the reactions of the recruiting experts.

Michigan football has all the momentum

The Wolverines have been viewed as the leader in this recruitment. However, Ohio State, North Carolina, Clemson, and others are lurking.

Michigan football needs to close and it feels like they might have done that. Denard Robinson, the former U-M quarterback, who is now part of the recruiting operation, teased some positive news. That might not be about Davis but that’s what it feels like.

Blake Frazier, a guy trending with crystal balls to the Wolverines, also tweeted out this photo which includes Davis, Jordan Marshall, and Brady Prieskorn.

Brice Marich of The Michigan Insider also put in a new crystal ball projection for Davis to land with the Wolverines. Now, we wait for the announcement of a commitment date.

Next. 3 weekend visitors Michigan must land. dark

There is hope this can be over soon and from a Michigan football perspective, that’s what needs to happen or the Wolverines need to expand the board.
