At the end of this month, a key Michigan Wolverines football recruiting target will announce his commitment. Currently, only three teams remain for the 2024 four-star cornerback, Aaron Scott, including Michigan and Ohio State, who seem to be his top two choices.

Aaron Scott is one of the most sought-after recruits in the 2024 recruiting cycle and arguably the number one Michigan football recruiting target still available in this class. Based on current indications, it appears that this highly-ranked Ohio recruit is leaning towards choosing the Buckeyes, although the competition is intensifying as the deadline approaches.

According to the ON3 industry recruiting rankings, Aaron Scott is a top cornerback recruit in the 2024 class, ranking as the 13th player in the nation, the second-ranked cornerback in his class, and the number one recruit in the state of Ohio. Recently, another top Ohio recruit, Bryce West, chose Ohio State over Michigan, which means the Wolverines have the opportunity to level the playing field by securing Scott’s commitment.

Aaron Scott’s commitment date is set for July 30th, when the top recruit in Ohio will choose between Michigan football, Ohio State, and Oregon. The competition now seems to have narrowed down to two programs: Michigan football and the Ohio State Buckeyes. The expectation is that Scott will choose OSU when the time comes, although the Maize and Blue still appear to be contenders.

“Their defensive scheme interests me,” Scott said of Michigan football, per ON3. “I love pressing man-to-man, making it harder for the receivers… I feel like their defensive scheme and the defensive coordinator (Jesse Minter), they’re doing something special. They have an NFL-type defense, so it will help prepare you for the next level when you get there.”
