Heading into the official visit season next month, the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class ranks No. 2 in the country, boasting 17 impressive hard commitments thus far and counting. Right now, all signs point to the Wolverines landing even more of the nation’s top talent, including 2024 four-star edge rusher Aaron Chiles, the No. 1 recruit in Maryland.

Michigan football has long been expected to secure a commitment from the No. 1 recruit in Maryland, Aaron Chiles, which would further solidify the Wolverines’ claim as ‘EDGE U.’ Chiles, who possesses an impressive frame and matching talent, has been on Jim Harbaugh’s radar for quite some time now and appears to be on the verge of committing to the Maize and Blue in the month of June.

Next month should be an exciting one for Michigan football recruiting, as official visits usually bring a number of top commitments. Aaron Chiles is among those scheduled for a June visit to Ann Arbor, and there is no question that the Wolverines will be looking to finalize his recruitment and secure yet another major blue-chip commitment.

According to the 247 Sports rankings, Chiles is an impressive top-tier four-star defensive end, ranked among the top 75 recruits in the country. He is currently ranked No. 73 nationally, No. 6 among linebackers in his class, and is the No. 1 recruit in the state of Maryland. These rankings are impressive, and combined with his elite 6-foot-3, 220-pound frame, he possesses all the tools to become the next great pass rusher for the Wolverines.

Aaron Chiles, the No. 1 recruit in Maryland, is set to take his official visit with Michigan football on June 23rd, so expect the Wolverines to make a significant push that weekend to secure his commitment.

It’s also worth noting that there are only three schools remaining in Chiles’ recruitment: Michigan football, Florida, and Maryland. Among these, the Wolverines appear to have a notable lead of 93.6% in the ON3 Recruiting Prediction Machine.
