On Tuesday, one of the top-ranked wide receiver prospects in the 2024 class announced his top 10 remaining schools. Elijah Moore of Good Counsel High School listed Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, and more among his final remaining schools that he will choose from when the time comes to commit — with Moore’s massive frame and solid pass-catching skills, he would make a perfect fit in Ann Arbor.

Elijah Moore released top 10, lists Michigan and others

Elijah Moore is rated as a three-star and four-star depending on what outlet you are using. He is a massive 6-4, 190-pound wide receiver from Onley, MD, and is ranked as the No. 671 player in the nation, the No. 94 wide receiver, and the No. 20 player in Maryland for the 2024 recruiting class.

According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine, Elijah Moore has a clear top-5 remaining schools: Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Maryland, and Florida State. That being said, it appears that the Michigan Wolverines are underdogs in this fight, with Penn State (53.8%) and Ohio State (16.7%) leading the way with the best odds to land Moore’s commitment.

Michigan football currently has the No. 11 2024 class in the nation (No. 2 Big Ten) with seven commits thus far — five of which are rated as four-star recruits. That being said, the Wolverines are without a wide receiver so far — Elijah Moore’s massive frame and quick hands could be exactly what Harbaugh and his staff are looking for seeing as they will need Moore to block and catch if he commits to UM.

For now, it’s just another day, another piece of great recruiting news for the Michigan Wolverines’ 2024 recruiting class.
