Michigan football is building momentum in the 2025 recruiting class, slowly but surely and the Wolverines are making some inroads with an elite prospect in the 2025 class, which is four-star safety Jordan Young.

Michigan football has been gaining traction with Young who is 6-foot, 184 pounds out of Monroe, North Carolina. He's ranked 45th overall in the 2025 class according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. Young is also the fourth-ranked safety and the third-best recruit in North Carolina.

The Wolverines have done well in the Tar Heel state recently, especially with the commitment of four-star quarterback Jadyn Davis. Michigan football made the top eight list for Young back on April 30th and the next step was getting him to Ann Arbor for an official visit.

Michigan has achieved that goal as Young will take an official visit to Michigan football. Young will also take official visits to Clemson, North Carolina State, and Florida State.

Tennessee was supposed to get a visit that weekend, but now the Wolverines will which puts them squarely in the mix for Young's commitment. Clemson is the favorite right now and has two crystal ball projections in their favor. But things change quickly in recruiting and the June visit is a huge opportunity for Michigan with Young.

Highly-touted QB will visit Michigan football

Brady Smigiel, a 6-foot-5 quarterback ranked fifth at the position in the 2026 class, is going to take a multi-day visit this summer to Michigan football according to Brice Marich of The Michigan Insider.

Smigiel said he's excited to spend more time around the coaching staff, especially offensive coordinator Kirk Campbell who has done a stellar job on the recruiting trail since he was hired.

Campbell closed the deal with Jadyn Davis. Jim Harbaugh and Sherrone Moore certainly helped, but Campbell played a key role. He landed Carter Smith in 2025 too.

Michigan football signed a top-10 quarterback in 2024 in Davis and Smith is ranked No. 153 overall, just outside the top 10 for quarterbacks. Smith might be an even better fit for Michigan, because of how he can run. People have compared him to Kansas State QB Avery Johnson.


Either way, Michigan has some quality quarterbacks in the pipeline for the future and Smigiel seems like a target to watch for the QB room in 2026.
