Michigan football recruiting is starting to really heat up in the 2024 and 2025 recruiting classes. Currently, the 2024 class is ranked No. 1, and the 2025 class is ranked No. 4. This is quite impressive considering it is only May of 2023. This week, Michigan’s 2026 football recruiting efforts shifted down south and included another Georgia target on their offer list: 2026 EDGE Caron Brooks from Thomas Country High School in GA.

Despite being a sophomore in high school, Brooks already possesses an impressive 6-foot-4, 220-pound frame, despite his young age. If Jim Harbaugh aims to maintain the momentum in high-level recruiting, he understands the importance of securing interest from some of the nation’s top recruits, especially in states like Georgia.

Michigan football recruiting offers another Georgia target: Massive 2026 EDGE Camron Brooks

Camron Brooks is a highly sought-after recruiting target for numerous major national powers. Recently, he caught the attention of Jim Harbaugh and Michigan football recruiting. As a member of the 2026 recruiting class, Brooks is yet to be evaluated as a prospect; however, this fact hasn’t deterred big-name programs from extending scholarship offers right from the start.

Jim Harbaugh has recently extended offers to a few Georgia targets; given that the Georgia Bulldogs and Clemson Tigers have had great success in recruiting from Georgia, it’s understandable why Harbaugh is targeting players from this state. The young defensive line target for the 2026 class has already received offers from top programs such as Georgia, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Florida State, and now, the Michigan Wolverines. Currently, Michigan is the only Big Ten team targeting Brooks, but it’s expected that this will change when the 2026 recruiting class gains prominence in the college football world.

Despite his imposing physical stature, Brooks is entering his sophomore season at Thomas County Central High School in Thomasville, GA. Establishing an early connection is crucial in recruiting, especially when dealing with prospects who are not in Michigan’s region. Therefore, this early offer may serve as a significant momentum-builder for Michigan football recruiting.
