Yesterday, two new crystal ball picks were placed in favor of the Michigan Wolverines football program following a massive recruiting weekend, which concluded just a few days ago.

So far, tons of positive buzz has been surrounding the Maize and Blue on the recruiting trail after last weekend; however, Michigan has only locked down two of its targets thus far. With yesterday’s new insider predictions, it appears that the Michigan Wolverines are closing in on a new pair of major four-star targets in the 2024 recruiting class.

Two new crystal ball picks favor Michigan Wolverines football to land a pair of elite-caliber four-star recruits in the 2024 class.

A huge weekend of official visits, which concluded last Sunday, appears to be paying off big time for the Michigan Wolverines thus far. Yesterday, more crystal balls began rolling in for the Maize and Blue, who are now clear-cut frontrunners to land a pair of elite-caliber four-star recruits in the 2024 recruiting cycle. Here is who the Wolverines are trending for right now.

Late yesterday evening, the Michigan Wolverines landed a crystal ball to pick up a commitment from Elias Rudolph, a four-star edge rusher out of Maryland who has been high on Jim Harbaugh’s wishlist for quite some time now. Everything appears to be falling into place for Jim Harbaugh and company with Rudolph, signifying that an elite four-star commitment may be in the works for the Maize and Blue.

The second crystal ball pick for the Michigan Wolverines is for four-star Jordan Shipp, a wide receiver in the class of 2024 and a teammate of Jadyn Davis. So far, Jim Harbaugh has landed two commitments from Providence Day High School in North Carolina: Jadyn Davis (five-star quarterback) and Channing Goodwin (four-star wide receiver). Adding a talent like Jordan Shipp, another blue-chip target from Providence Day, would be massive for the Wolverines’ future title aspirations.
