Michigan Football in good standing with Elite O-line recruits

In this article, I look at some elite offensive line recruits that Michigan football is gaining momentum with, including a five-star and a handful of top four stars.

Four Star Michael Carroll (PA)

Michael Carroll is a guy who has been talked about before. The previous belief was that Michigan could be the leader here. Carroll was also set to visit Easter weekend, so Michigan football has a shot to grow their lead even further.

This one seems like it's going to be a Michigan vs Penn State battle, but it looks like the Wolverines have an edge. While I don't expect Carroll to commit within the next few days, the staff could lock him in for a Summer official visit, at which point I'd look for a commitment over the summer.

This is a very winnable recruitment.

Four Star Avery Gach (MI)

This, on the surface, is the most favorable recruitment for the Wolverines. Gach is in state, and Michigan has a ton of momentum here. Gach just visited, and by all accounts he had a great time. He's set to visit Michigan officially over the Summer, and I think the Wolverines could definitely land his commitment then.

Gach has stated that he wants to wait until he takes his official visits to commit. Some contenders for Gach include Georgia, USC, Wisconsin, and Penn State. ON3 has Michigan as the heavy favorite here. Gach is a guy that could become a leader in this class, and Sherrone Moore has done a great job of giving Michigan a lead here. This is definitely one to keep an eye on as time goes by.
