The Wolverines now have their stud quarterback in the fold, as North Carolina five-star prospect Jadyn Davis gave the Wolverines his public commitment. Now, with a high-profile QB addition, Michigan football can capitalize with a handful of recruits.

Ever since the earliest days, I have been following recruiting, there has been a clear trend of successful recruiting classes having committed recruits who will go out and help pitch joining their class to others.

Whether that was linebacker commit Michael Ferns creating Michigan football recruiting t-shirts in 2014, or the prolific attitude and personality of former prized QB recruit Shane Morris in the 2013 class, Michigan has had some recruits willing to recruit others. And traditionally, landing high-profile quarterbacks tends to be the biggest draw a team’s recruiting class can have.

The Wolverines added a very big draw to their recruiting class last weekend, landing five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis last weekend, over suitors such as Ohio State, Clemson, Tennessee, and North Carolina.

The North Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year is one of the nation’s top players in this class and now becomes a headline addition for the Wolverines. Thus, there is some optimism that Davis’ presence in this class could boost the Wolverines’ chances at a handful of other recruitments. We take a look at five of those prospects here.

WR Channing Goodwin (NC)

A teammate of Davis’ and a three-star recruit according to 247Sports, Goodwin makes perfectly fine sense as someone more likely to join the Michigan class. He not only shares the tie to Davis but has a significant tie to Michigan football as well, as his father, Jonathan Goodwin, played offensive line at Michigan under Lloyd Carr in the late 90s/early 2000s.

Michigan football is already considered the leader in this recruitment, with all four predictions on the 247Sports Crystal Ball favoring Michigan, including from Steve Wiltfong, 247Sports’ Director of Football Recruiting.

His teammate, Jordan Shipp, is another talented wideout to be on the lookout for, but the current feeling is that North Carolina may lead that recruitment. Either way, expect Goodwin to get the full court-press from his quarterback to join the Wolverines class sooner than later.
