Jadyn Davis, a long-time priority for Michigan football has set a decision date and much more in our Michigan Wolverines news roundup. 

After what has been months and even years really, Michigan football fans could finally see the Wolverines land another five-star quarterback.

The Michigan Wolverines weren’t able to land Dante Moore in the 2023 class and former Michigan football legacy C.J. Carr committed last summer to Notre Dame in the 2024 class.

However, the Michigan football team always had a plan. The Wolverines became the favorite with Jadyn Davis last summer and while it has taken a while to reach a decision, it’s finally happening.

Davis included the Michigan Wolverines among his top five along with Ohio State, Clemson, North Carolina, and Tennessee. He will make his commitment known on ESPN next Friday at 1:30 PM EST, which is one day before the Michigan football spring game.

All signs are pointing toward Michigan winning this commitment and when it does, there will be a big celebration among Wolverines fans, as well as a sigh of relief.

More Michigan football recruiting buzz

While the commitment of Jordan Marshall and now the decision date of Davis have dominated the headlines, Michigan football has a number of other targets on campus this weekend.

One of those guys is four-star wide receiver I’Marion Stewart, who has received multiple crystal ball projections to land with the Michigan Wolverines and will be back again this spring.

Stewart is one of the top-ranked players in the state of Illinois, a place Michigan has had a lot of recruiting success in recent years and this visit could potentially lead to a commitment. Who knows, anything seems possible right now.

Michigan Wolverines cruise in hockey, baseball

In the NCAA hockey tournament last night, the Wolverines scored seven goals in the second period to break open a tight game and defeat Colgate 11-1 in the first round of the tourney.

The Michigan Wolverines are now onto the Elite 8 of college hockey and will face Penn State on Sunday for a second straight trip to the Frozen Four.

Michigan also opened its Big Ten baseball schedule against the Nittany Lions on Friday and used an eight-run inning to rout Penn State 13-4. Connor O’Halloran got the win for the Wolverines after going eight innings and allowing four runs on eight hits. He also struck out seven.

Joey Velaquez, a Michigan football player too, belted a home run in the win, as did Joe Longo. Cody Jefferis added three doubles and an RBI in the win. He also scored three runs. Longo and Trey Burton also drove in three runs as Michigan improved to 10-11 on the season.
