On Saturday afternoon, Michigan football got a head start on its 2025 recruiting class. The newest Wolverine is 2025 linebacker Mantrez Walker from Buford Georgia.

Mantrez Walker turns Blue

Mantrez Walker is a 5-11, 215-pound linebacker out of Buford High School in Buford, Georgia. Walker is unranked according to 247 Sports, though this is likely because the 2025 class is still so young. Walker is the Wolverines’ second 2025 commit, and is also a track and field standout.

Walker chose Michigan football over an extensive list of schools. Most notably, the Wolverines beat Florida, Florida State, LSU, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Georgia, Texas, and Texas A&M.

Walker is a great addition to the 2025 class, and could be the next great linebacker to wear the Winged Helmet. This is what Walker had to say per 247 Sports:

“I’ve always wanted to play for Michigan,” Walker told The Michigan Insider. “I feel as though I can create a legacy at Michigan. I feel that I can fit into Michigan’s defense perfectly with Coach Minter’s vision. I want to be a part of a family oriented culture with a rich winning tradition.”

Michigan football assembling strong 2025 class

Walker and four-star corner Chris Ewald are Michigan’s only two 2025 commits. It may not be the most pressing recruiting cycle, but Walker is a massive addition nonetheless. Despite an average class in 2023, the 2024 and 2025 classes are starting to come together for Jim Harbaugh and his staff.

As of late, Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan Wolverines have gotten some high praise for their ability to develop offensive lineman. Over the past two seasons alone, the Michigan football offensive line has been the focal point for the Wolverines’ impressive offense, leading to two-straight Big Ten titles, CFP appearances, and back-to-back Joe Moore Awards (the first program to ever win two in a row). Now, Michigan is getting hot in the 2024 recruiting class, and the Wolverines are trending for two new four-star offensive linemen.

Michigan football trending with two new four-star offensive linemen

This week has been quite kind to the Michigan football recruiting efforts in the 2024 class, especially when it comes to the offensive line spot. After picking up two brand new four-star recruits from Ohio this week, Michigan now ranks No. 3 in the 247 Sports team rankings for the 2024 class. Michigan landed the No. 2 player in Ohio (RB) and a top-ranked Ohio offensive lineman to match.

Now, it appears as if Michigan football may pick up a few more commitments soon, as the Wolverines are trending for two new four-star offensive linemen.

Michigan recruiting trending for four-star Max Anderson

The first of the two four-star offensive linemen that Michigan football is trending for is Max Anderson from Reedy High School in Frisco, TX. Anderson stands at 6-foot-5 and weighs in at 300 pounds — his massive frame is matched with some incredible talent as well. He is rated as a four-star recruit by On3 and is ranked as the No. 209 player in the class, the No. 7 interior offensive lineman, and the No. 42 player in the state of Texas. Additionally, the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine gives Michigan football an 89.9% chance of landing his commitment.

Michigan recruiting trending for four-star Andrew Sprague

The second of the two four-star offensive linemen that Michigan football is trending with is Andrew Sprague of Rockhurst High School in Kansas City, MO. Andrew Sprague, like Max Anderson, has an impressive, college-ready frame (6-foot-8, 270 pounds) and the talent to back it up. According to On3, Andrew Sprague is a four-star offensive tackle and is ranked as the No. 142 player in the class, the No. 14 offensive tackle, and the No. 4 player in the state of Missouri. Earlier this week, he included the Michigan Wolverines in his top 10 remaining schools, which is a solid sign for Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan football coaching staff.

When it comes to the recruitment of Jadyn Davis — who the Wolverines hope to be the crown jewel of the 2024 recruiting class — it has been months of effort an uncertainty for Jim Harbaugh and his staff. Finally, at the end of this month, five-star QB Jadyn Davis will announce his commitment; hopefully, it will be for the Michigan football team.

Five-star QB Jadyn Davis sets commitment date for late-March

On March 31st, five-star QB Jadyn Davis will be announcing his commitment. Right now, the ever-talented quarterback prospect is expected to commit to Michigan football; in fact, every major recruiting outlet has thought that the announcement would have come much sooner, though thus far, Davis has maintained radio silence on the matter. Today, Davis will announce his top-5 remaining schools.

Five-star QB Jadyn Davis is one of the most sought-after recruits in the 2024 recruiting cycle. He stands around 6-foot-1, weighs in at 190 pounds, and has all of the talent in the world to match his solid frame. 247 Sports rates Davis as a five-star quarterback and ranks him as the No. 28 player in the nation, the No. 2 quarterback in his class, and the No. 1 player from North Carolina.

Davis is expected to turn Maize and Blue, though the long wait has some worried

Davis currently has six crystal balls on 247 Sports — all of which are for the Michigan football team. If that was not enough, the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine gives Michigan football a 90.3% chance of landing the immensely talented quarterback recruit.

No one is quite sure why five-star QB Jadyn Davis has not committed thus far — especially since he was in Ann Arbor last weekend and is heavily favored to wind up in the Maize and Blue — though we will all find out where he is headed soon enough. While some suspect that Davis is waiting because he is not interested in Michigan, others believe that he is just a high school student trying to weigh his options before making a life-changing choice. You decide which side of the fence you’d rather be on there.

Regardless of how you feel on the subject, Jadyn Davis will make his announcement a week from today on March 31st.

ANN ARBOR, MI — Most Maize and Blue fans have noticed that the Wolverines are getting hot on the recruiting trail right now. As of late, Michigan has landed a number of the nation’s best prospects, and over the past two days alone, Michigan football has pulled two top-ranked four-star recruits from the Buckeye state. Now, with nine players committed for the 2024 cycle, the Wolverines’ efforts have been paying off as they boast a top 3 recruiting class.

Michigan football recruiting class shoots into top 3

On Tuesday, Michigan football landed the highest rated recruit in its class so far: four-star running back Jordan Marshall, who picked the Wolverines over the Buckeyes this week. The day after, Michigan landed another four-star from Ohio: Ben Roebuck, an offensive tackle from St. Edward High School.

The Wolverines’ two commitments this week put the class up to nine commits thus far, boasting an average rating of 90.58 and totaling 165.36 recruiting points. Of the nine commits that have picked Michigan football thus far, six are ranked as four-stars on 247 Sports; the other three are three-stars. Michigan football currently sits at No. 3 in the class rankings, only behind LSU and Georgia of the SEC.

Not only is Michigan’s class a top 3 recruiting class, but the Wolverines also boast the best class in the Big Ten, above schools like Ohio State (15), Penn State (22), and others. Here are the nine players that Michigan football has landed thus far:

  • Jordan Marshall (RB)
  • Jacob Oden (ATH)
  • Hogan Hansen (TE)
  • Mason Curtis (LB)
  • Luke Hamilton (OL)
  • Ted Hammond (DL)
  • Ben Roebuck (OL)
  • Manuel Beigel (DL)
