ANN ARBOR, Mich. — For Maize and Blue fans, today has been much anticipated for quite some time now. Over the past few months, the race for five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis has been heating up, and on Friday afternoon, the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class finally landed its crown jewel. The Wolverines beat out schools like Clemson, Ohio State, and more for the incredibly talented 2024 QB, who will likely become the successor of JJ McCarthy.

2024 Michigan football recruiting class lands massive QB prospect

The 2024 Michigan football recruiting class already ranks top-3 in the nation with nine players committed thus far. On Friday afternoon, the Wolverines landed another major recruit — Jim Harbaugh’s first five-star of the 2024 class and first since 2022 — with five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis announcing his decision to play for Michigan football.

Jadyn Davis was one of the most sought-after players in the 2024 recruiting class, and his commitment to Michigan football is massive for a few reasons. First, he is the first five-star quarterback to pick Michigan since JJ McCarthy (class of 2021) did so a few years ago; second, he is the second major recruit in the last few weeks to choose the Wolverines over the Ohio State Buckeyes; and third, five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis is a 2024 recruit, meaning if/when JJ McCarthy leaves the program after next season or in 2024, Davis will be ready to take over in Ann Arbor.

According to the 247 Sports recruiting rankings, the newest member of the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class is rated as a five-star quarterback, and ranked as the No. 28 player in the 2024 class, the No. 2 quarterback in his class, and the No. 1 player in the state of North Carolina. Davis has been expected to commit to the Michigan Wolverines for awhile, but for whatever reason, decided to wait it out and commit during the spring on the final day of March.

Michigan’s elite 2024 recruiting class will continue to climb towards the top spot in the team rankings with today’s commitment, and we would not be shocked if the Wolverines landed one of the top classes nationally all said and done.
