Jim Harbaugh has been very active in the recruiting game this offseason. In addition to assembling a top 20 high school recruiting class, Michigan football has acquired talented players through the transfer portal. These players have experience playing at a high level at their previous schools and will be ready to contribute to the Wolverines on day one of the new season. Today, three of these new Michigan football transfer portal commits were named to 247’s All-Transfer team.

Three Michigan football transfer portal commits earn All-Transfer team honors

Recently, 247 Sports released the ‘2023 All-Transfer Portal Team.’ Michigan football will receive experienced talent on offense, defense, and special teams through the transfer portal for the upcoming season. Here are three Wolverines who made the 2023 All-Transfer team.

Ladarius Henderson – G

After winning back-to-back Joe Moore awards, it’s clear that whatever Michigan football is doing on the offensive line is working. Joining an already elite group of talent will be graduate student Ladarius Henderson.

Henderson played in all four years of his career at Arizona State and was named a team captain in 2022. According to Pro Football Focus, Henderson allowed only two sacks across 619 pass-blocking snaps in his last two seasons with the Sun Devils.

Although he played left guard in his last two seasons, Henderson has experience playing tackle which gives the Wolverines options for how to utilize him this upcoming season. Look for Henderson to bring experience on the field and as a lockerroom presence as a former team captain.

Ernest Hausmann – LB

Following his freshman year at Nebraska, true sophomore linebacker Ernest Hausmann will be joining the Wolverines. In his freshman year at Nebraska, Hausmann played in all 12 games and started seven of them. In one of those starts, he recorded his first career sack on none other than J.J. McCarthy.

Hausmann’s youth and skill will be highly valuable to the Wolverines. With three years of eligibility remaining, Hausmann could turn into an elite-level starter with a strong Michigan defense.

James Turner – K

After spending his first three years with the Louisville Cardinals, the Saline, MI native will come home to play for the Wolverines.  With Jake Moody off to the NFL, Michigan football will be looking for a new starting kicker and Turner could be a perfect fit.

In his three years at Louisville, Turner has only missed one field goal from inside 40 yards across 33 attempts. Turner has made 97.6 percent of his career extra-point attempts, missing only one in his most recent season. His career long field goal was good from 50 yards and Turner converted 70 percent of field goals from within 40-49 yards across his career.

Turner’s consistency from within 50 yards is a valuable tool to have on the roster. Look for Turner to compete with Michigan kicker Tommy Doman for this year’s starting spot.
