On the final day of March, the 2024 Michigan Wolverines football recruiting class secured its top-priority target in the cycle: five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis. Despite a slight drop in recent rankings updates, Davis remains the top commit for the Wolverines and is expected to succeed JJ McCarthy in 2024 or 2025. ESPN recently ranked the most impactful commits of the 2024 class so far, and Michigan’s new prized QB made the list.

Michigan Wolverines football recruiting: Jadyn Davis a top commit in the 2024 class

Jadyn Davis is the crown jewel of Jim Harbaugh’s class, regardless of what recent rankings drop-offs may indicate. The Maize and Blue are confident that they have secured the future of the program with Davis in their 2024 recruiting class.

In a recent article, ESPN expressed enthusiasm about the Wolverines’ newest quarterback commit, ranking him among the top 5 most impactful commitments in the 2024 recruiting class thus far. Justin Scott, a recent five-star Ohio State commit, who was once considered a strong Michigan lean, also made the cut.

Depending on the service you’re using, Davis is either a four or five-star quarterback; regardless, he has proven to be one of the top players in the 2024 class and is a significant addition for the Maize and Blue.

In future seasons, Michigan football fans will see whether Jim Harbaugh is right about Jadyn Davis. If he is, then the Wolverines will likely remain in Big Ten and national title contention for years to come. If not, the Wolverines may find themselves slipping behind in the conference as seen in year’s past. The stakes are high for the Maize and Blue, as is the case for all championship-caliber programs.
