This is possibly the most intriguing position left for Michigan football in the 2024 class. There are three wide receivers that the Wolverines are currently after, each ranked in the top 101.
First on that list is Gatlin Bair. Bair is coming off of a multi-day visit to Boise State and will commit on August 5th.
Bair holds his cards close to his chest, and not many people know what he’s thinking. All indications are that his Boise State visit went very well, and obviously, recency bias is very existent in all recruitments.
The Broncos have momentum, and it wouldn’t be surprising if they were to land Bair’s commitment.
With that said Michigan football is going to be staying in contact and putting the full-court press on Bair. He’s an incredibly talented player that Michigan wants, and they know they’re the better program.
This one is too close to call and feels like a legitimate coin flip. Nobody really knows what Bair is thinking.
Regardless of what happens with Bair, Michigan is going after two other wide receivers, both elite talents.
First, there is five-star Ryan Wingo. Wingo is announcing his commitment in December, which gives Michigan football the entire season to work on him.
If the Wolverines can get Wingo back on campus and pair that with another elite season, they’re going to be a legitimate contender. Ron Bellamy has done a tremendous job keeping Michigan in this recruitment, and they’re going to remain a threat.
A new name that has come up is Nitro Tuggle. Ranked as the 101st player in the nation, Tuggle has been committed to Georgia since April. He is the teammate of new Michigan commit Jo’Ziah Edmond and has been very pro-Michigan on social media recently.
Michigan football has been in contact with Tuggle, and is gauging the interest. If they can get him on a visit, U-M could really gain momentum. Tuggle and Edmond are both from Indiana, so this one may be about proximity to home. This will be one to monitor as the season progresses.
