ANN ARBOR, MI — Most Maize and Blue fans have noticed that the Wolverines are getting hot on the recruiting trail right now. As of late, Michigan has landed a number of the nation’s best prospects, and over the past two days alone, Michigan football has pulled two top-ranked four-star recruits from the Buckeye state. Now, with nine players committed for the 2024 cycle, the Wolverines’ efforts have been paying off as they boast a top 3 recruiting class.

On Tuesday, Michigan football landed the highest rated recruit in its class so far: four-star running back Jordan Marshall, who picked the Wolverines over the Buckeyes this week. The day after, Michigan landed another four-star from Ohio: Ben Roebuck, an offensive tackle from St. Edward High School.

The Wolverines’ two commitments this week put the class up to nine commits thus far, boasting an average rating of 90.58 and totaling 165.36 recruiting points. Of the nine commits that have picked Michigan football thus far, six are ranked as four-stars on 247 Sports; the other three are three-stars.
