Thus far in the 2024 recruiting cycle, Sam Webb is 100% accurate with his crystal balls. On Monday, Webb placed once for 2024 three/four-star Ohio offensive lineman Ben Roebuck, who has been linked to Michigan football recruiting on a few occasions. Webb’s prediction is the fourth crystal ball for Roebuck — all of these predictions are for Michigan to come out on top.

Ben Roebuck is rated as a three-star or four-star recruit depending on what outlet you are using, and is ranked as the No. 25 offensive tackle in the 2024 class. Additionally, Roebuck is ranked as the No. 12 player in the state of Ohio.

The talented Ohio offensive lineman stands at 6-7 and weighs in at 340-pounds, which is an ideal frame for Michigan football recruiting to pursue. Additionally, he has high upside and could develop into an elite player during his time in Ann Arbor is he is to commit to UM. Roebuck is a product of St. Edward High School and stems from Lakewood, OH, which sits just 30 minutes from Columbus, OH, the home of the Ohio State Buckeyes.

While Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Rutgers, Wisconsin, and more have been making a push for Roebuck, all sources and insiders believe that Roebuck will be playing in the Maize and Blue next season.
