The Maize and Blue are yet to lose a single member of their 2024 recruiting class since Jim Harbaugh decided to leave the program for the LA Chargers; in fact, the class seemed prepared for the move to happen. In Harbaugh’s place is a fan (and recruit) favorite: Sherrone Moore, a 37-year-old offensive coordinator and offensive line coach who went 4-0 as acting head coach last season. The move could turn out to be a good one for Michigan football recruiting, and it has the attention of elite four-star wideout Andrew Marsh out of Texas, according to new reports.

Michigan football recruiting is trending to miss on four-star wideout Gatlin Bair, who was expected to pick the Wolverines just a few months ago. While all signs point to Oregon winning that battle, it appears that Sherrone Moore may have Michigan back in the race elsewhere: the pursuit of Andrew Marsh.

Michigan has been interested in Andrew Marsh for quite some time now, even getting him to Ann Arbor for a pair of visits over the summer. Still, despite the Wolverines’ efforts so far, schools like LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, and USC are all top contenders here, with the Tigers seemingly leading the pack heading into the offseason.

Hire of Sherrone Moore reportedly has interest of Andrew Marsh

With a regime change happening in Ann Arbor, Sherrone Moore being hired may still not be enough to get Marsh to commit to Michigan football; yet, it was a move that peaked the four-star wide receiver’s interest and could leave the Maize and Blue in a good place. In fact, per a new report from the On3 Network, Marsh “really likes Michigan” and the promotion of Sherrone Moore is seen as a positive for him.

There is a lot of time between now and National Signing Day for the 2025 recruiting class in which Marsh resides. With Sherrone Moore looking to emphasize recruiting and NIL efforts more than Jim Harbaugh did during his time at the helm, it’s safe to say that the Wolverines are not down for the count in this race just yet. Sure, it seems unlikely, especially given the fact that Michigan football does not have the means to compete with LSU, Texas, and others in the world of NIL just yet; however, we’ll see what Moore and his staff can do here over the coming months. After all, that national title and countless NFL Draft picks have to be worth something in the minds of recruits.

Per the Industry Rankings, Andrew Marsh is a four-star wideout in the 2025 recruiting class — he ranks as the No. 19 overall player nationally, the No. 4 wideout nationally, and the No. 5 player in the state of Texas.
