BOOM! Just like that, the Michigan football recruiting momentum continues! This offseason, the Wolverines have been on an absolute tear with recruiting the class of 2024. In fact, they’ve been doing so well that they currently sit at No. 1 in the nation, just ahead of Ohio State. The No. 1 class has been bolstered again with the commitment of elite wide receiver target Channing Goodwin.

Michigan football recruiting: Channing Goodwin is officially a Wolverine

There’s no question that Michigan football has an elite 2024 recruiting class. Still, up to this point, there has been one glaring weakness that has left fans concerned. Those fans can take a deep breath today as the Wolverines now have a wide receiver in their 2024 class.

This afternoon, Channing Goodwin, a three-star wide receiver out of North Carolina, announced his commitment to play for Michigan football. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound wide receiver is currently listed as the No. 511 player in the country and the No. 72 wide receiver per 247 Sports. Still, despite the three-star label, don’t be surprised to see him continue to rise in the ranks before this recruiting cycle is over.

Michigan beat out several top programs for Goodwin’s talents, including schools like South Carolina and North Carolina. Ultimately, this is a fantastic choice. While all his options would have been great, the University of Michigan is one of the best in the world, excelling at athletics and academics.

Goodwin is a three-sport athlete with elite athleticism that should shine this coming high school season. Not to mention, he’ll have another future Wolverine throwing to him with five-star Jadyn Davis on his high school team, Providence Day.

Michigan could pull off the three-peat

No, this isn’t a reference to the Big Ten Championship. It’s also not a reference to the fact that Michigan football has beaten Ohio State each of the past two seasons. Instead, this refers to the fact that the Wolverines could have yet another Providence Day football player join the class sooner rather than later.

With Jadyn Davis and Channing Goodwin now a part of the class, eyes turn to another Michigan football target on the same high school team. Jordan Shipp, another four-star wide receiver out of Providence Day School, has already included the Wolverines in his top-eight schools.

Along with Michigan football, his list includes Georgia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Kentucky, Maryland, Cincinnati and Virginia Tech. This list came out back in February, so who knows where his mind is at right now. Still, it’s notable that multiple of his teammates have chosen the Wolverines as their future school in recent months.

Michigan football recruiting has all the momentum in the world. With Goodwin committed to the class, it’s hard to find any remaining weaknesses for this class. Now, any additions are just icing on top, but you can be sure that Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines won’t be taking their foot off the gas any time soon.
