Before Early Signing Day, Michigan football was one of the few college football teams without a transfer portal commitment.

However, that changed on Wednesday as four-star linebacker Jaishawn Barham committed to the Wolverines. The former Maryland linebacker was ranked 149th overall according to the 247 Sorts composite rankings out of high school. He was also productive in his first two seasons with 98 total tackles, seven sacks, and an interception of quarterback J.J. McCarthy.

Barham is likely going to start next season. He's probably not going to be the only transfer portal starter for Michigan football next season.

The Wolverines are looking for a wide receiver They have also been after a defensive back. However, at wide receiver, Michigan football has a new target which is former Wake Forest wideout Jahmal Banks. Banks caught 59 passes for 653 yards and four touchdowns for the Demon Deacons last season and is 6-foot-4, 205 pounds.

Banks is also going to take a visit to Michigan football. He's probably going to be a replacement for graduate Cornelius Johnson. Michigan still needs to close which doesn't always happen with every visit, yet the Wolverines seem to be in a good spot for Banks.

Another transfer target at cornerback

Upton Stout, the former Western Kentucky cornerback has been on the Wolverines' radar. Stout has also visited campus, as well as taking a trip to USC.

There have been crystal ball projections for Stout to join Michigan football. A commitment hasn't happened yet though which could be why the Wolverines are showing interest in former UConn cornerback Mumu Bin-Wahad.
