ANN ARBOR, MI — If the Michigan Wolverines want the perfect shot to close with five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis, this weekend will be exactly that.
The spring recruiting period has heated up for the Michigan Wolverines, as the Wolverines have another stacked recruiting weekend for many elite 2024 and 2025 prospects. Michigan currently has the fifth-best recruiting class in the 2024 cycle per 247 sports, with seven commits. The Wolverines could potentially add their crown jewel in five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis. This weekend will be the Providence Day star’s fifth visit to Ann Arbor.
While this recruitment will go longer, the Wolverines can secure a commitment this weekend.
Michigan football could close with five-star quarterback during weekend visit
Under former quarterback coach Matt Wiess, recruiting was starting to taper off. Weiss, known for his football acumen, was not the best at forging solid relationships with prospects. Michigan missed out on in-state five-star QB Dante Moore last cycle. It was told bluntly by Jadyn Davis’s father, Jeremiah, that he was “a terrible recruiter” via Sam Webb on The Michigan Recruiting Insider podcast.
Enter new quarterback coach Kirk Campbell, and early returns have shown that Campbell has a stark contrast in style compared to the Wiess, as mentioned above. Last weekend, Michigan hosted No. 1 2025 five-star in-state QB Bryce Underwood. Per Blue By Ninety’s own CJ Mangum, the visit edged Michigan as the favorite to land Underwood over rival Michigan State via the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine. Campbell has been a much-needed jolt to Michigan’s QB recruiting.
It’s possible that JJ McCarthy could have an excellent season and declare as a junior for the NFL Draft. That leaves an opening for a new starter in 2024. Looking at who could be an option for QB1 in 2024; redshirt sophomore Jadyen Denegal, redshirt sophomore Alex Orji and redshirt junior Davis Warren. Michigan did not land a QB prospect in the 2023 class.
Michigan has been in this recruitment for a long time and will be looking for the opportunity to land their QB of 2024 this weekend. Davis is rated as a five-star prospect in the 247 Sports composite and ranked as the No. 2 QB in the 2024 class. Michigan currently has the lead on the crystal ball projection on 247 Sports.
