Michigan football will be hosting another blue-chip quarterback for the recruiting BBQ next month as Ryan Montgomery will visit campus again. 

Michigan football has been active when it comes to recruiting quarterbacks in the 2025 class and that effort continues as another four-star quarterback will visit for the recruiting BBQ next month.

It was reported earlier this week that Michigan football was going to host four-star Akili Smith Jr. for an unofficial visit during the BBQ. That will be Smith’s first trip to see the Wolverines, even though Michigan is among his top three teams, which also include Florida and Oregon.

However, a familiar face will also be coming for the recruiting BBQ and that’s four-star quarterback Ryan Montgomery from Findlay, Ohio according to Zach Libby of The Wolverine.

Montgomery is ranked 210th overall via the On3 Industry rankings. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder is also ranked 15th among quarterbacks in the 2025 class. On3 rates him the lowest at 28th at the position, while every other service has him 14th or better.

At any rate, Montgomery is a top-10 player in the state of Ohio. His recruitment, in terms of visits, has focused a lot on Michigan football and Ohio State. He’s visited the Buckeyes nine times, Michigan football eight times, and Kentucky four times via On3.

This upcoming visit to Michigan football will be the ninth. Montgomery also made a stop at the Wolverines’ camp over the summer, which gave him a chance to throw for Jim Harbaugh.

What the 2025 QB board looks like for Michigan football

It’s clear that Michigan likes Montgomery. Bryce Underwood is the top guy on the board. George MacIntyre, another five-star QB in the class, also took a multi-day visit to Michigan football recently.

Add Smith in the mix and that’s three top-100 quarterbacks that will have visited the Wolverines recently, along with Montgomery, who is a solid four-star prospect.

That means there are some really good options on the board. Underwood is the ideal scenario and Michigan football has a legit shot of making it happen.

However, it’s good to see the Wolverines make progress with other targets, and truth be told, any of the four would be solid adds to the quarterback room.
