It’s been an up-and-down week for Michigan football. Obviously, Aaron Scott and Bennett Warren both committed elsewhere as expected. Yes, the Aaron Scott commitment hurt a lot, but oh well. However, there have also been positives.
Michigan football showed that despite their struggles at the top, they can still steal commits from lesser programs with ease. They did so with former Purdue cornerback commit Jo’Ziah Edmond, who has the potential to be a significant riser in the rankings with a good senior season.
The Wolverines also appear to be primed to land another three-star cornerback in Jeremiah Lowe. While losing out on Aaron Scott hurt, Michigan football was ready with its backup plan. You can bet those guys are going to come in with a chip on their shoulder.
At 27 commits, 28 if you include Jeremiah Lowe who is likely to commit sooner rather than later, there isn’t much room for additional commits. At this point, the staff is going to shoot for the stars. They’re going to pursue highly rated recruits and try to poach top recruits from struggling schools during the season like they always do.
With how College Football is played today with the transfer portal and such, I think the cap for this class is likely around 32-35. You can afford to take a bigger class nowadays, and Michigan is going to take advantage of that. If there’s someone they really want, they’re going to offer them a spot.
With that said, let’s look at what’s left on Michigan’s board as of now.
