Michigan football recruiting is currently enjoying a surge in recruiting success, with their 2024 and 2025 classes garnering significant attention from the college football world. In particular, the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class has taken the recruiting landscape by storm, securing the coveted No. 1 spot in the nation. This achievement is a testament to the exceptional talent evaluation and recruiting strategy employed by the Wolverines coaching staff. Despite already having an impressive haul of top-tier recruits committed for 2025, Jim Harbaugh, the head coach of Michigan football, continues to pursue elite prospects with a bold and aggressive approach. One such prospect is Jaelyne Matthews, a highly-regarded Penn State football commit, who received a scholarship offer from Michigan on Wednesday morning. This move by Harbaugh and his staff is a clear demonstration of their unwavering commitment to recruiting the best talent in the country.

Recently, the Michigan football program’s recruiting efforts have been paying significant dividends, and the Wolverines added another high-profile target to their sights today: Jaelyne Matthews, one of the top-ranked Penn State football commits in the 2025 recruiting class. This move by the Wolverines is a bold one, but it has the potential to pay off handsomely in the long run.

Matthews is a composite four-star recruit and is considered one of the top offensive tackles in the 2025 recruiting class. Standing at an imposing 6-foot-6 and weighing approximately 275 pounds, Matthews is a product of Tom Rivers North High School in New Jersey.

According to the 247 Sports composite rankings, Matthews is ranked as one of the top 60 prospects nationally, a top 10 offensive tackle in his recruiting class, and the No. 1 recruit in the state of New Jersey. He has been committed to James Franklin’s Penn State Nittany Lions for some time; however, that was before receiving an offer from Jim Harbaugh’s Wolverines. Given Michigan football’s impressive recruiting track record and reputation for developing elite offensive line talent, there is always a chance that Harbaugh will be able to persuade Matthews to join his team and make a significant impact.

This is a major move by the Wolverines, and if successful, it could bolster their chances of contending for a national championship in the years to come. By adding a highly-touted recruit like Matthews to their already impressive 2025 recruiting class, Michigan football is positioning itself as a force to be reckoned with in the college football landscape. It remains to be seen how Matthews will respond to Michigan’s offer, but Wolverines fans are undoubtedly excited about the potential for this top-ranked Penn State football commit to join their team.

First weekend of June could be huge for Michigan football recruiting

The Wolverines could kick off official visit season with a bang.

Michigan football recruiting, official visit

Almost all fans of Michigan football recruiting are well aware of how important the coming month will be for Jim Harbaugh and his Wolverines as it marks the beginning of official visit season. The 2024 class already ranks among the top two nationally, boasting 17 hard commits, including the crown jewel and future face of the program: five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis. To kick things off, the Wolverines will be hosting a number of their top targets and could land a series of major commitments to start the new month.

Of the five recruits slated to be in Ann Arbor this weekend, Michigan football recruiting is heavily trending towards landing two of them. Jacob Smith and Brian Robinson, both four-star defenders in the 2024 recruiting class, are expected to commit to the Maize and Blue when all is said and done. If Jim Harbaugh and the coaching staff play their cards right, they could lock down this pair of elite defensive stars to kick off the new month.

Alongside Jacob Smith will be his brother, Jerod Smith, who is already committed to the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class. This bodes well for the Wolverines’ chances of securing at least one commitment (Smith), and they’ll likely make a huge push for Brian Robinson as well, in an attempt to secure his commitment before he visits two other strong contenders in the coming weeks: Penn State and Kentucky.

Another official visit to watch

Another name to watch is Jordan Shipp, a four-star wide receiver from Providence Day High School, the same school as Jadyn Davis. According to the Recruiting Prediction Machine, Michigan football is among the top programs for his commitment but still trails NC State by a solid margin. However, this weekend’s visit could go a long way in turning the tide, and if Michigan is lucky, it could spark another much-needed major commitment in the 2024 class.

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.

This weekend marks the beginning of official visits for Michigan football recruiting, a crucial time for Head Coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff. Four official visitors, including four-star California safety Marquis Gallegos, are scheduled for June 2nd-4th. Gallegos is a highly sought-after prospect by several prominent PAC-12 programs, making this visit an important opportunity for the Wolverines to make their case. Although currently trailing behind Oregon, USC, and others in the Recruiting Prediction Machine, Michigan has a chance to change the narrative with this weekend’s visit.

Michigan football recruiting looking to make a splash during official visit season

The 2024 Michigan football recruiting class stands out for its exceptional qualities, particularly the strong bond already formed among its members. With 17 hard commits, Michigan boasts the largest class and currently holds the second rank nationally. These committed players are united in their pursuit of a national championship and have been vocal about their ambitious aspirations in the Maize and Blue.

Joining a class like this holds great appeal for top-tier recruits such as Marquis Gallegos, who hails from California and plays as a safety. Being enveloped by the Maize and Blue atmosphere during an official visit to Ann Arbor can further enhance this appeal.

This weekend presents a significant opportunity for Michigan football to reverse its fortunes and emerge as a top contender in Gallegos’ recruitment, provided the coaching staff executes their strategy effectively.

A possible turning point with Marquis Gallegos

Presently, Michigan is viewed as the fourth-ranked contender in the race to secure Marquis Gallegos, trailing behind USC, Oregon, and Notre Dame according to the ON3 Recruiting Prediction Machine. However, this upcoming visit will be Gallegos’ second time in Ann Arbor, and the extended weekend trip could significantly strengthen Michigan’s position as a frontrunner.

Marquis Gallegos, a four-star safety from Chaminade High School in California, is highly regarded in the industry rankings. He holds the national rank of 223, is positioned at number 18 among safeties, and is ranked 17th among all recruits in the state of California. Although the journey to Ann Arbor, MI may be lengthy, it presents a mutually beneficial opportunity for all parties involved. Needless to say, a successful visit this weekend could be a monumental achievement for Michigan football recruiting.
