The latest Michigan football recruiting rankings have garnered national attention due to significant improvements among several Wolverines recruits. However, one top-ranked commit, Jordan Marshall, a four-star tailback from Ohio, has experienced a drop in the ON3 top 100 rankings, falling from No. 90 to No. 104.

Michigan football recruiting commit Jordan Marshall falls from top 100

Jordan Marshall’s commitment to Michigan football stands out as one of the program’s most notable recruiting victories in recent memory. It marks the first time under Jim Harbaugh’s tenure that the Wolverines have successfully secured a top recruit from Ohio State’s home state, beating out the Buckeyes for talent that they were heavily pursuing.

Marshall has also earned praise for his exemplary conduct, exemplifying the Maize and Blue spirit through his perspectives on NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness), dedication to Michigan football, and more.

Although Jordan Marshall is regarded as one of the top recruits in Ohio, his recent decline in the newly updated ON3 Industry Rankings, moving down from No. 90 to No. 104, came as a surprise. Many view him as a key member of the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class, and this drop is not expected to persist.

The 2024 class still has ample time for re-evaluation before signing day next year. If Marshall performs as anticipated during the upcoming fall season, there is little doubt that he will have an opportunity to regain his higher ranking.

Nevertheless, these new rankings can serve as motivational material for the young four-star Michigan football commit as he prepares for his final high school football season.

Overall, the 2024 Michigan football recruiting class appears to be in excellent shape. It boasts more commits than any other class at present and ranks in the top 5 in both the ON3 and 247 Sports rankings. While rankings do not hold ultimate significance for Jim Harbaugh and his team, the Wolverines’ future prospects appear as promising as any other program’s when evaluated on paper — it is clear that this class wants to win a national championship, and they are collecting the talent to do so.
