Michigan Football: Jadyn Davis’ ranking continues to drop

Michigan football’s quarterback commitment Jadyn Davis has seen his ranking drop dramatically over the summer and here’s where it stands now. 

Back when Jadyn Davis committed to Michigan football, the Providence Day prospect from Charlotte was a five-star quarterback in the 247 Sports composite rankings and in multiple recruiting services.

Now, as we are in the middle of July, the ranking of Jadyn Davis has fallen dramatically. Only one recruiting service — Rivals — ranks Davis as a five-star prospect at this point (No. 20 overall).

Other recruiting services such as ESPN and On3 have dropped Davis out of their top 100 completely. Michigan football fans know that Charles Power of On3.com doesn’t view Davis as an elite signal-caller.

On3.com has him ranked as the 13th-best quarterback in the 2024 class and the No. 187 overall prospect, which seems far too low to me. Here’s what Power said recently about Davis:

"“Jadyn Davis has long been considered a top quarterback in the cycle. At 6-foot-0.5, 190 pounds he’s a polished, developed quarterback who did a nice job distributing the ball to a talented group of skill players on his team at Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Christian. Davis didn’t appear to have overwhelming physical attributes at the Elite 11 Finals, but we’ll be watching his senior season.”"

Davis is ranked 60th overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings right now. According to the On3 Industry rankings, he’s 65th.

Why Michigan football fans shouldn’t worry too much

One positive is that every recruiting service (outside of On3) has Davis ranked seventh or higher among the 2024 quarterbacks and even On3’s top expert calls him a polished player.

Maybe Davis doesn’t look as good in the shorts and T-shirt circuit. However, the Michigan football commitment is a guy that feels ready to play early and I still feel really good about his future with the Wolverines.

Davis might not have the elite arm of some of the other top prospects, but I’d say that’s pretty nitpicky. He’s got enough arm talent to be successful with Michigan football and in my opinion, the drop has been a little drastic with some rankings especially.

I trust Jim Harbaugh and company when it comes to their evaluation and this fall, I think Davis will remind everyone why he was once a near-consensus five-star recruit.
