ANN ARBOR, MI — On Saturday, the Michigan Wolverines will be hosting some massive recruiting prospects from many upcoming classes. For the second time this month, Michigan football is hosting a huge recruiting weekend — names like Brandyn Hillman, Jadyn Davis, and others will all be touring Ann Arbor and the Wolverines’ football facilities in hopes of finding their next home. Among the top players making their way to campus is Dylan Stewart, who is ranked as the No. 1 player in the nation for the 2024 recruiting cycle by On3.

Michigan football: No. 1 player in the nation will be in Ann Arbor for the weekend

On Saturday, Dylan Stewart will take his fist-ever visit to Ann Arbor, MI. Stewart is rated as a five-star recruit by On3 and is ranked as the No. 1 player in the country, the No. 1 edge rusher, and the No. 1 player in Washington DC. Right now, experts project that Stewart will land in Tuscaloosa, AL, to play for Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide; however, one visit with Jim Harbaugh could change everything.

While Stewart is visiting with Michigan football for the first time today, he has visited with many other schools (some of which are in the Big Ten) many more times. South Carolina currently leads in visits with six thus far; Penn State and Ohio State are the next-highest schools when it comes to visit numbers — both have three.

The 6-5, 235-pound Stewart could be a massive addition to the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class — pulling the No. 1 player in the nation (2024) could be the Wolverines’ next step towards competing for a national title under head coach Jim Harbaugh. If all goes well today, we could see Stewart in the Mazie and Blue in one year.
