The Wolverines already have their 2024 quarterback, Jadyn Davis, locked down, as he committed to Jim Harbaugh’s squad on March 31st. Now, Harbaugh’s staff is hard at work with finding their quarterback for the 2025 Michigan football recruiting class, and the top target right now is Bryce Underwood out of Belleville High School, a mere 20 minutes from Ann Arbor, MI. Underwood is ranked as the No. 1 quarterback in the nation by every major outlet and is ranked as the No. 1 recruit nationally by On3; today, he will be at the University of Michigan.

Michigan football recruiting to host the No. 1 quarterback today

Bryce Underwood, the No. 1 recruit in the nation, announced on Thursday that he will be visiting the University of Michigan today, according to his tweet. The Wolverines’ 2025 football recruiting class currently ranks No. 4 nationally per the 247 Sports Composite, though it falls short of Michigan’s top-ranked 2024 class.

As a Michigan native, Underwood has garnered significant national attention, but the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine suggests that he is initially interested in staying in-state at the University of Michigan, with the Wolverines (37%) and Michigan State Spartans (23.2%) currently leading the race for his commitment.

Michigan’s 2025 recruiting class currently only has two commits, both composite four-star defenders. However, if head coach Jim Harbaugh can manage to add Underwood, the top quarterback and one of the top recruits in the country, Michigan’s 2025 class could jump to the top of the rankings, as the 2024 class did. While Underwood’s commitment is not expected soon, his visit to the University of Michigan is an encouraging early sign for the Wolverines’ recruiting efforts.
