The 2024 Michigan football recruiting class is shaping up nicely with 15 hard commits under Jim Harbaugh’s belt. The class consists of one 5-star, ten 4-stars, and three 3-stars. The latest addition to the class is 3-star Georgia linebacker Ben Grice, who has drawn interest from several SEC programs. Harbaugh’s interest in a few top southern prospects has been headlining recent Michigan Wolverines recruiting news, and that trend seems to be holding up with this new offer.

Grice, who attends Woodward Academy in College Park, GA, boasts an impressive frame, high potential, and strong academic credentials that have earned him offers from the likes of Princeton and Northwestern. He is quickly rising up the ranks in the 2024 recruiting class and has caught the eye of Harbaugh and his staff at Michigan football.

Michigan Wolverines recruiting news: Jim Harbaugh targeting fast-rising Georgia linebacker

Jim Harbaugh’s prowess in recruiting is well-known, and his success is evident in Michigan’s top-ranked 2024 recruiting class. One of Harbaugh’s strengths as a recruiter is his ability to identify hidden talent, earning Michigan the reputation as “development U” among some of the sport’s top voices.

Linebacker Ben Grice is a prime example of the type of recruit that fits the mold for Michigan football. Though he may be flying under the radar as a 3-star prospect, Grice has garnered national interest and possesses the physical traits to succeed at the college level. Standing at 6-feet and 175 pounds, he is ranked as the No. 158 linebacker in his class and No. 119 in the state of Georgia.

Despite these modest rankings, Grice has received offers from several top programs, including Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Louisville. On Thursday evening, Grice announced on Twitter that he had received an offer from Michigan football, indicating the Wolverines’ interest in him. While he may not be their top target, Grice is a name to watch in the 2024 recruiting class and could become a valuable addition for the Jim Harbaugh-led Michigan Wolverines.
