First weekend of June could be huge for Michigan football recruiting

The Wolverines could kick off official visit season with a bang.



Michigan football recruiting, official visit

Almost all fans of Michigan football recruiting are well aware of how important the coming month will be for Jim Harbaugh and his Wolverines as it marks the beginning of official visit season. The 2024 class already ranks among the top two nationally, boasting 17 hard commits, including the crown jewel and future face of the program: five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis. To kick things off, the Wolverines will be hosting a number of their top targets and could land a series of major commitments to start the new month.

Michigan football recruiting could kick off June with a bang

Of the five recruits slated to be in Ann Arbor this weekend, Michigan football recruiting is heavily trending towards landing two of them. Jacob Smith and Brian Robinson, both four-star defenders in the 2024 recruiting class, are expected to commit to the Maize and Blue when all is said and done. If Jim Harbaugh and the coaching staff play their cards right, they could lock down this pair of elite defensive stars to kick off the new month.

Alongside Jacob Smith will be his brother, Jerod Smith, who is already committed to the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class. This bodes well for the Wolverines’ chances of securing at least one commitment (Smith), and they’ll likely make a huge push for Brian Robinson as well, in an attempt to secure his commitment before he visits two other strong contenders in the coming weeks: Penn State and Kentucky.

Another official visit to watch

Another name to watch is Jordan Shipp, a four-star wide receiver from Providence Day High School, the same school as Jadyn Davis. According to the Recruiting Prediction Machine, Michigan football is among the top programs for his commitment but still trails NC State by a solid margin. However, this weekend’s visit could go a long way in turning the tide, and if Michigan is lucky, it could spark another much-needed major commitment in the 2024 class.
