It's been a while since Michigan football landed a receiver ranked in the 50 overall of a recruiting class but things have been trending favorably for the Wolverines with four-star Andrew Marsh.

Marsh, who is 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, out of Katy, Texas, took an official visit to Michigan football last month and is ranked No. 52 overall in the 2025 class according to the 247 Sports composite rankings, right outside the top 50 overall. He's also ranked eighth among wide receivers.

Running the ball has helped Michigan football win a lot of games over the past three years but it hasn't necessarily helped them on the recruiting trail. It feels like it has hurt the Wolverines with the recruitment of quarterbacks and wide receivers.

Yet, with Marsh the Wolverines have talked about the offense wanting to be more explosive, according to Sam Webb of The Michigan Insider, and Marsh could certainly help with that down the road. But it can be hard to sell that to recruits until they see it on the field.

Michigan football was able to generate explosive plays but the offense was conservative at times. Kirk Campbell is calling the plays now, at least that's what is expected, so maybe the Wolverines will air it out more.

As far as Marsh, Webb is reporting that he is "leaning" toward moving his commitment date up. Marsh has wanted to commit in November but is now talking about an August decision. Since the Wolverines have so much momentum and since Marsh is scheduled to be at the Michigan football recruiting BBQ, it feels like things are lining up for a commitment.
