Michigan football is trending for a 2024 cornerback, plus the Michigan Wolverines are trying to flip a Michigan State commitment and more in our roundup.
It was obvious that Michigan football needed to do some work on cornerback recruiting after missing out on Aaron Scott.
The Michigan Wolverines needed to expand their board and change their priorities and Michigan football has done that as there was some movement at cornerback on Monday.
Soon after Scott decided for the Buckeyes, Michigan football started getting expert projections from On3.com and a 247 Sports crystal ball from Steve Wiltfong to land three-star cornerback Jeremiah Lowe out of Kentucky.
Lowe is ranked outside the top 1,000 of the 247 Sports composite rankings. Yet, so was Rod Moore when the Michigan Wolverines first offered. Lowe is 5-foot-11, out of Lexington, Kentucky, and is expected to decide sometime in August.
Michigan football is aiming for a flip
Syair Torrence committed to Michigan State last month however, the 5-foot-11 cornerback out of Syracuse, New York was offered by the Michigan Wolverines on Monday.
It was the first new cornerback offer in the 2024 class, so that was notable. It’s also noteworthy since Michigan football is trying to flip a player committed to Michigan State.
Torrance was also offered by Rutgers, Syracuse, and Boston College. He’s ranked No. 688 overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings and is a recruitment to watch. I have no idea if Michigan football will be able to gain any traction to flip him, but you never know.
At the very least, it’s good to see the Wolverines being active and identifying new players to offer.
More Michigan Wolverines news
- Michigan football players will report for fall camp on Tuesday. The first practice for the Wolverines will take place on Wednesday with the season opener just over a month away (32 days to be exact).
- In more Michigan football news, both quarterback J.J. McCarthy and Blake Corum were named to the preseason watch list for the Maxwell Award. The Maxwell goes to the best player in college football and there’s good reason to believe that could be Corum or McCarthy during the 2023 season.
- Lastly, Warren Bennett committed to Tennessee on Monday as was expected with all of the crystal ball picks trending in that direction.
