Last weekend, the highly sought-after five-star wide receiver, Ryan Wingo, made an official visit to Ann Arbor. According to all internal reports, the visit went exceptionally well; however, many believe that it is unlikely for the Maize and Blue to secure Wingo’s commitment this recruiting cycle. Nonetheless, Michigan football remains determined to make a strong push for him, and the possibility of Wingo joining the Wolverines is not completely ruled out.

Does Michigan football still have a shot with Ryan Wingo?

Michigan football has already secured plenty of offensive talent in the 2024 recruiting class. Led by five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis, who recently participated in the Elite 11 finals in LA, the Wolverines are off to a good start in terms of offensive recruiting.

They have assembled a strong offensive line class and acquired some of the nation’s top running backs. However, Michigan still has a few crucial needs to address, particularly the lack of another wide receiver. So far, they have secured commitments from two four-star wideouts, with the potential to add five-star recruit Ryan Wingo to their ranks.

Wingo visited Ann Arbor last weekend, and although it seems unlikely that he will ultimately choose Michigan, the Wolverines made a strong impression on the elite prospect during his visit. Wingo himself believes that he would fit well into Michigan’s offense and can envision a role for himself wearing the winged helmet in the future.

It is important to note that Wingo’s interest in Michigan does not necessarily indicate a strong inclination towards choosing the school. However, his visit to Ann Arbor significantly increased his interest in the Maize and Blue. If Michigan’s coaching staff can make a compelling late push, they might be able to secure the commitment of this major five-star wide receiver, adding another weapon to Jadyn Davis’s arsenal in the future.

Without a doubt, successfully recruiting a player of this caliber could extend Michigan’s national title aspirations for years to come — the Wolverines’ top competition here appears to be the Georgia Bulldogs, who currently leads in crystal balls.
