The commitment drought for Michigan football has been a topic of conversation for the past couple of weeks and it's only growing.

The Wolverines haven't landed a commitment since right after the Rose Bowl. That was tight end Eli Owens, one of the 2025 commitments for Michigan football, which has a total of three.

It might not be a star-studded class right now, but Michigan football has plenty of time before signing day to sign a stellar group. Things are looking up with a few key recruiting targets and one of them is four-star offensive tackle Avery Gach.

Gach is 6-foot-5, 275 pounds and rated by the 247 sports composite rankings as the No. 2 recruit in the state of Michigan for the 2025 class. He's also ranked 228th overall and on Monday, he picked up a second crystal ball projection to wind up as a Michigan football player.

This one comes from Allen Trieu of 247 Sports. Trieu covers Midwest recruiting for 247 Sports and his crystal ball is significant. It's not from a team reporter -- those are reliable too but sometimes, the info from the team is more optimistic.

Regardless, Gach would be the perfect recruit to end the commitment drought. Sherrone Moore, the new Michigan football head coach, is still seeking his first pledge since taking the job and Gach would be an ideal guy to take the leap. He's an in-state recruit and you have to believe the offensive line success, plus commitment to running the ball has to help in this recruitment and others.


Gach has talked about an announcement after taking official visits, which would mean this summer. But I'm feeling very good about where the Wolverines stand with the No. 2 in-state recruit in 2025.
