If you haven't noticed, things are starting to pick up on the recruiting trail for Michigan football. Head coach Sherrone Moore said that the Wolverines were going to be aggressive on the recruiting trail and they are starting to show that.

We are still in the midst of a recruiting dead period. That ends early next month and Michigan football has been very busy scheduling visits to get recruits on campus. We talked about the visit of four-star offensive tackle Mason Garcia on Monday.

Well, Grant Newsome, the Michigan football offensive line coach, has another talented offensive tackle coming to Ann Arbor for a visit in March and that's borderline five-star Andrew Babalola.

Elite OT to visit Michigan football

Babalola is the definition of an elite player on the offensive line. He's 6-foot-6, 280 pounds out of Overland Park, Kansas and he's ranked 26th overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. He's also the fourth-ranked offensive tackle in the 2025 class.

Michigan football had already offered the elite Midwest prospect in September but according to a report from Brice Marich of The Michigan Insider, Babalola has locked in a visit for March 22nd. Oklahoma already has an official visit scheduled. Kansas State and Nebraska are also heavily involved.

Babalola told Marich that the offer 'was special' because he was born in the state of Michigan, although he doesn't have any family members there currently. He's also tight with Andrew Sprague, an offensive tackle who signed with Michigan in the 2024 class.


This will be the first visit for Babalola and it will be a chance for the Wolverines to establish themselves as a contender in this recruitment. Getting him back for an official visit in June would be ideal and with Michigan's O-line success in recent years, you have to feel like there's a good chance that the Wolverines will be firmly in the mix when it's all said and done with Babalola.
