Within the week, Michigan football focused on a significant transfer portal recruit: Ole Miss All-American and rising sophomore Davison Igbinosun. Igbinosun has caught the attention of many programs and appears to be down to his final few schools. Who else would be in the conversation with the Wolverines than Ryan Day’s Buckeyes, who are also in hot pursuit of the 2022 All-American.
Igbinosun is a must-get for Michigan football
The Wolverines’ roster is looking loaded for the coming football season; in fact, it might be the most experienced and talented roster Jim Harbaugh has possessed as the head coach of Michigan football. The Wolverines are coming off of back-to-back top 3 finishes, Big Ten titles, wins over Ohio State, and College Football Playoff (CFP) appearances in 2021 and 2022.
When you look at Michigan’s roster for this fall, it is hard to see a loss on its schedule — the Wolverines’ biggest threat will be at Penn State as the Buckeyes lose plenty of talent and must come to Ann Arbor. Since 2021, the Wolverines have won 25 of their last 28 games and 19 of their previous 20 Big Ten conference games.
Additionally, Michigan football boasts a few massive wins over the past two seasons, including numerous wins over Penn State and Ohio State and a 22-point victory over Mel Tucker’s Spartans last season.
In 2023, the Wolverines’ only real roster hole is at cornerback. Even so, it is not a huge issue; however, if there is a flaw with Michigan’s 2023 roster, that would be it. Luckily for Michigan football, Davison Igbinosun could fit this need perfectly and create a near-flawless roster.
What could Davison Igbinosun bring to the table in Ann Arbor?
We’ve written a previous piece about Davison Igbinosun, but in case you missed that one, here’s an excerpt from that article breaking down who Igbinosun is:
“Igbinosun earned Freshman All-America honors for his performance in 2022 — he appeared in all 13 of the Rebels’ games last season, making ten starts at cornerback. Igbinosun stands at 6-2 and weighs in around 185 lbs — with his size and frame (especially as a rising sophomore), Igbinosun would be a massive get for Michigan football. According to the 247 rankings, Igbinosun was the No. 162 overall player, the No. 21 corner, and the No. 1 player in New Jersey in the class of 2022. Igbinosun committed to Ole Miss in January of last year and, just one year later, is looking to find a new home. Igbinoson made 20 tackles and recorded five pass-breakups throughout 2022.”
If Habraugh and Co. can bring Igbinosun to Ann Arbor, the Wolverines would patch the only semi-questionable position group on its roster heading into the 2023 season this fall.
Where is Igbinosun headed?
Over the weekend, Davison Igbinosun was on his official visit with Jim Harbaugh and Michigan football in Ann Arbor, MI.

The day before visiting Ann Arbor, Igbinosun visited Ryan Day and the Ohio State Buckeyes in another pivotal step of his recruitment. From the sounds of things, the decision could very well come down to Michigan and Ohio State — only time will tell where the All-American lands this fall.
