This weekend, the highly sought-after transfer portal target for Michigan football, Josh Wallace, took a two-day trip to Ann Arbor to meet with the team. Early reports suggest positive signs for the Wolverines, indicating that Wallace could potentially fill Michigan’s final remaining need at cornerback for the upcoming 2023 season.

Top Michigan football transfer portal target has two-day visit with the Wolverines

Since entering the transfer portal over a week ago, Josh Wallace has been the top target for Michigan football that is still available. The Wolverines have already made significant progress in the transfer portal, securing several notable commitments, including Ernest Hausmann, Drake Nugent, AJ Barner, and others.

Michigan currently faces a depth issue at cornerback, with head coach Jim Harbaugh acknowledging the progress of Amorion Walker but recognizing the need for additional talent. This is particularly important considering that Will Johnson, the top cornerback for Michigan, is recovering from an injury and underwent offseason surgery.

In this context, the addition of Josh Wallace’s skills, experience, and physicality could provide a significant boost to Michigan’s defense as they aim to contend for a national championship.

Wolverines trending for top transfer target

Trusted Michigan football media voice, Josh Henschke of Rivals, has recently reported positive developments in the recruitment of Josh Wallace. If these reports hold true and his visit to Ann Arbor went well, the Wolverines may be on the verge of securing another impactful transfer portal acquisition.

Currently, the competition for Wallace’s commitment appears to be primarily between Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, and Michigan, with Penn State becoming less influential as of late.

With a sense of positive momentum surrounding the recruitment of Josh Wallace, Michigan football seems to be in an advantageous position. However, it is now up to Jim Harbaugh and his coaching staff to let the recruiting process unfold and for fans to wait for an official announcement, hopeful for a successful outcome.

If Michigan manages to secure Wallace’s commitment, it would address their final team need before the 2023 season, making the Wolverines an even more formidable contender.
