ANN ARBOR, MI — On Monday, following a massive recruiting weekend for the Michigan Wolverines, Jim Harbaugh and his staff received some more good news on the 2024 recruiting trail. Two new crystal balls were placed for the Michigan football program — both are for elite 2024 offensive linemen that could end up developing into the next generation of Joe Moore Award-winning linemen in the Maize and Blue.

Michigan football receives new crystal balls for two elite 2024 linemen

On Monday afternoon, the Michigan football team received many crystal balls for two separate four-star offensive tackles. The first of the crystal balls was placed at 4:12 PM by Steve Lorenz of The Michigan Insider for 2024 four-star Max Anderson, an offensive tackle out of Reedy High School. Anderson is a native of Frisco, TX, and is ranked as the No. 186 player in the 2024 class, the No. 10 offensive tackle in his class, and the No. 31 player in the state of Texas.

The crystal ball has a confidence level of five; however, Lorenz is 100% accurate for his 2024 predictions thus far.

The second elite prospect that Michigan football is expected to land is four-star Texas lineman Blake Frazier. Frazier is a massive offensive line recruit out of The Woodlands High School, and is the son of a former Michigan football national champion (Steve Frazier). Frazier did not just receive one crystal ball, he earned four crystal balls within 24 hours from Sunday to Monday, including many Michigan insiders and 247 director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong.

Frazier is a major tackle prospect for the Wolverines — he is rated as a composite four-star recruit and is ranked as the No. 213 player in the 2024 class, the No. 13 offensive tackle in the nation, and the No. 36 player in the state of Texas.

Both Frazier and Anderson could be massive pickups for the Michigan football program as the Wolverines look to stay elite while playing their own style of football. If Jim Harbaugh wants to keep winning Big Ten titles in Ann Arbor, he will need to maintain a steady flow of elite offensive line recruits coming through the door to propel his offense.
