ANN ARBOR, MI — Over the weekend, the top 2024 recruiting target for the Michigan Wolverines was in Ann Arbor for yet another visit. While Jadyn Davis has visited with the Wolverines many times in the past, his latest trip was even more important for a few reasons — namely, it was his first time meeting the new Michigan football quarterbacks coach Kirk Campbell. Campbell, who was recently hired following the dismissal of former co-offensive coordinator and QB coach Matt Weiss, clearly made a good first impression with the five-star quarterback.
Jadyn Davis is the top target for the Wolverines
‘Desperate’ would not be the correct word to describe Michigan football when it comes to the recruitment of Jadyn Davis; however, landing him is on the top of the Wolverines’ to-do list without a shadow of a doubt. Assuming current starting QB JJ McCarthy leaves the program after the 2023 (or even 2024) season, the Michigan football team will need a new, equally talented man under center to keep the Wolverines competitive.
For those around the program, the belief is that McCarthy’s successor will be the five-star North Carolina prospect Jadyn Davis, though until a commitment is secured, all of the predictions mean next to nothing.
Michigan football makes a good impression on the Davis family
After his latest (and arguably most important) visit with Michigan football, Jadyn Davis’s father broke down how it went and what he liked.
“I guess the main thing [this time] is that we got to spend a lot of time with Kirk Campbell,” Mr. Davis said. “That was three quarters of the visit. We got to sit in the quarterback room with all those [quarterbacks] and hear how he teaches the position, the progressions, and actually watch him go to work. It was pretty engaging. It’s a good room. A good room with a good teacher. Very impressed with coach Campbell.”
That was not all, though — he was impressed with much more than just the Xs and Os.
“He’s very, very relationship-oriented,” Mr. Davis said. “He’s a family guy. I can see myself in him at times when I’m talking to him. He’s going to bring the guys together, treat them like they’re family, coach them hard, but at the same time acknowledge when they do stuff right. So he’s a standup guy, in my opinion.”
When will Jadyn Davis commit? No one is sure, and his father was (understandably) as vague as he could be. “Yeah, we talked about it,” Mr. Davis added. “A timeline was discussed, and we’ll see what happens.”
