Michigan Wolverines news: Michigan football makes top 6 for EDGE, huge day for lacrosse, and more

Michigan football is a finalist for a top-ranked EDGE in 2024, the Michigan Wolverines lacrosse team has a huge game vs Duke, and more. 

The Michigan Wolverines are in a really good spot when it comes to the 2024 recruiting class. Michigan football is ranked No. 1 by 247 Sports team rankings as of right now.

It’s hard to say if that ranking will hold, but Michigan football has a number of top targets/leans coming to campus in the month of June and should be adding to that list of commitments.

Another recruit that Michigan football will want to get on campus for an official visit next month is four-star EDGE Darien Mayo, who included the Wolverines in his top-six release on Friday.

Mayo is out of Olney, Maryland, and is listed at 6-foot-7, 247 pounds. He’s ranked No. 181 overall in the 2024 class, as well as the 17th-best EDGE.

Michigan football has done well recruiting in the DMV recently but the competition is fierce as Ohio State, Clemson, USC, Maryland, and South Carolina are also in the mix. Right now, Mayo has official visits scheduled with Clemson (June 2) and Ohio State (June 9).

Another player the Michigan Wolverines have been recruiting really hard is Gatlin Bair and the speedster from Idaho continues to wow people with his speed, setting a new state record in Idaho with a time of 10.15.

That’s faster than Tyreek Hill was in high school, according to Zach Shaw of The Michigan Insider, and frankly, he’s at the top of my list for remaining targets for Michigan football in the 2024 class.

Bair is 6-foot-2, 180 pounds. He’s a freak and he’s going to be a force in college football, hopefully, for the Michigan Wolverines, who are among his top five and should get an official visit.

Michigan Wolverines lacrosse takes on No. 1

The Michigan lacrosse team is playing in the NCAA tournament for the first time and after an overtime win last weekend over Cornell, the Wolverines will travel to top-ranked Duke on Saturday.

It’s going to be a massive challenge and something this squad hasn’t really faced, but Michigan took down another traditional power last weekend and after winning its first Big Ten championship a couple of weeks ago in Columbus, this team has been on a roll.

Michael Boehm is a name to watch on the offensive end for the Wolverines. He had three goals against Cornell and has 45 on the season. Michigan’s top defensive stopper is Andrew Darby.

A win would send the Wolverines to the Final Four of lacrosse, which would be quite an achievement but Duke is a powerhouse, so it won’t be easy.

The match gets underway at 2:30 PM EST on ESPNU.
