Michigan football recruiting is actively pursuing the highly sought-after four-star wide receiver, Gatlin Bair, in the 2024 recruiting cycle. Bair has generated significant interest from several top teams across the nation and even received a recent offer from the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Despite the intense competition, Bair has already unveiled his top-5 choices, and the Wolverines have successfully secured a spot on that list. Exciting new footage has emerged showcasing Bair’s exceptional athleticism, as he shattered the Idaho state record in the 100-meter dash, further solidifying his status as a major target for Michigan.

Here is footage of this potential future Wolverine and his blazing speed:

According to 247 Sports, Bair is a highly touted four-star wide receiver in the class of 2024. He is ranked as the No. 40 player nationally, the No. 9 wide receiver in his class, and the top recruit in Idaho. Following his recent top-5 announcement, Bair expressed admiration for Michigan football and showed significant interest in visiting Ann Arbor in the near future.

Despite a recent offer from the Alabama Crimson Tide, Michigan football is firmly in Bair’s top-5 and has garnered a great deal from the major four-star target. The Wolverines have some stout competition still, though are well-positioned to make a run at his commitment over the summer.
