Sherrone Moore and Michigan football have been aggressive on the recruiting trail, just as the new Wolverines head coach said he would.

Michigan football hosted a bunch of elite prospects over the last week. Jadon Blair and Andrew Babalola, a pair of top-100 prospects visited last weekend.

The early returns on those visits were good, plus new running backs coach Tony Alford is doing impressive things with running back recruiting as three top-200 backs visited in the past week -- two from Ohio.

This weekend though, it's all about the offensive line. There are six visitors on campus according to and five of them are offensive linemen. Top-100 interior offensive lineman, Douglas Utu is in Ann Arbor on Saturday. He's 6-foot-5, 300 pounds, and ranked 57th overall.

The elite prospect from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas is a former teammate of Micah Kaapana, a three-star running back who was criminally underrated in the 2024 class.

Utu isn't the only top target visiting this weekend. Jack Lange, a 6-foot-8 offensive lineman from Eureka, Missouri, is also visiting. He's got official visits scheduled with Nebraska and Missouri, as well as Michigan football. He's considered a Notre Dame lean, but the Wolverines landed Andrew Sprague in the 2024 class and this feels like a similar pull.


Kaden Strayhorn, Hardy Watts, Michael Carroll, and three-star defensive back Josh Johnson are all visiting the Wolverines this weekend. Michigan isn't trending toward any commitments but that could start to change soon if the Wolverines can turn this positive momentum into something tangible, such as the first commitment of the Sherrone Moore era.
