The Wolverines’ 2024 recruiting class is coming along nicely thus far, and has recently been making waves with a significant four-star recruit. Boo Carter, the No. 1 recruit in Tennessee, has been posting quite a bit about Michigan football has of late, and included the Wolverines in his top-5 along with Ohio State and others.

Michigan football trending with No. 1 recruit in Tennessee

Michigan’s 2024 recruiting class is a tight-knit group and has been doing a lot of the heavy lifting for Jim Harbaugh themselves. So far, star players like Jadyn Davis and many others have been quite vocal about recruiting other top-ranked recruits to Ann Arbor; so far, it has clearly been working as Michigan football boasts a top-3 class nationally. Lately, many members of the Michigan football recruiting class have been making a strong push for Boo Carter, the No. 1 athlete in Tennessee, and it has been met with some enthusiasm on Carter’s end.

Carter a major target for the Wolverines

According to the Rivals Network, Boo Carter is a four-star athlete and is ranked as the No. 125 recruit nationally, the No. 10 athlete in the class, and the No. 1 recruit in Tennessee. Michigan football has a need for more skill players in the 2024 class, and locking down this major four-star would be massive for the program’s summer recruiting momentum.

It appears right now as if Boo Carter is bound to commit to Tennessee football; however, a recent series of tweets and re-tweets (below) may indicate that Michigan is trending in the right direction here.

Jacob Oden, Luke Hamilton, and Blake Frazier — all four-star Michigan football commits — have been the loudest voices in Carter’s recruitment to Ann Arbor thus far from what we can tell. Now, the Wolverines need to keep the intensity in this recruitment as high as they can to land the No. 1 recruit in Tennessee.
