Michigan Wolverines football
The Michigan Wolverines football team represents the University of Michigan in college football at the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) level. Michigan has the most all-time wins in football history. The team is known for its distinctive winged helmet, its fight song, its record-breaking attendance figures at Michigan Stadium, and its many rivalries, particularly its annual, regular-season-ending game against Ohio State is also known simply as “The Game,” once voted as ESPN’s best sports rivalry.
Michigan began competing in intercollegiate football in 1879. Michigan has won 42 league titles, and, since the inception of the AP Poll in 1936, has finished in the top 10 a total of 38 times. The Wolverines claim 11 national championships, out of them the most recently is that of the 1997 squad voted atop the final AP Poll.
Michigan football recruiting
Michigan football is putting together a solid 2021 recruiting class and as we approach the closing stretch, here are thoughts so far.
The 2021 recruiting class has been an interesting one for Michigan football. At times, fans have been super stoked and at other points, there has been lots of concern.
Last spring, Michigan football landed huge commitments from five-star quarterback J.J. McCarthy and four-star offensive tackle Giovanni El-Hadi. And for nearly a year, those were the only two commitments as part of the Wolverines’ 2021 recruiting class.
But since late March, when three-star defensive end Dominick Giudice committed to the Wolverines, soon after he was offered, Michigan football has reeled in 15 verbal commitments.
Six of those commitments have come from four-star prospects and those guys are LB’s Junior Colson and Jaydon Hood, defensive end Kechaun Bennett, offensive lineman Greg Crippen, and Raheem Anderson, as well as tight end Louis Hansen. All of those guys ranked inside the top 300 of the 247 composite rankings, outside of Bennett, who is No. 329.
The Wolverines also landed two defenders who are three stars but ranked in the top 500 in safety Rod Moore and linebacker Tyler McLaurin. U-M has also landed three-star wideout Markus Allen, three-star tackle Tristan Bounds, three-star corner Ja’DenMcBurrows, three-star defensive end TJ Guy, three-star linebacker Casey Phinney, and also three-star punter Tommy Doman, who is the No. 1 punter in the country for what it’s worth.
University of michigan
The University of Michigan features a rich and storied athletics tradition. the main competition officially began in 1865-66 when the team won its first three contests it played that season. In 1879, football started its storied tradition. Women’s athletics was established formally because of the varsity sports in 1973-74, hockey, swimming and diving, tennis, and volleyball teams. Men’s soccer and women’s athletic game were added as varsity sports in 2000-01.
Michigan athletic teams have claimed around 50 national championships in 12 sports, beginning with football’s 1901 national title. Wolverine dynasties have developed in football, men’s swimming and diving, and hockey. consistent with the facts, no other NCAA Division I program boasts more national titles in hockey or men’s swimming and diving than the Wolverines.
247 Michigan football
When it comes to the cornerback board for the 2021 class and Michigan football, things have been a little fluid. But one player that’s emerged as a top target for the Wolverines at the position is four-star cornerJamier Johnson, out of California.
Johnson is ranked 237th nationally according to the 247 sports composite rankings and he’s listed as the No. 17 corner and is listed at 6-foot-1, 175-pounds. His recruitment has been a little bit of a mystery since he’s only visited a couple of schools on his top list, which Michigan football made.
But Yesterday, Greg Biggins of 247 sports reported that Johnson was going to commit on July 3rd, which isn’t great for the Wolverines since he hasn’t been able to visit Ann Arbor yet. Johnson has visited Oregon and USC, but in Biggins’s article, he says USC hasn’t shown much interest.
Michigan has still been pushing for Johnson and the Wolverines have definitely made some gains with him and even after he commits July 3rd, if it’s not to U-M, I’d still expect the staff to push for a visit.
Oregon appears to be the favorite at this point but it’s really hard to say. That’s just assuming Johnson wants to go somewhere he’s visited. However, it’s close to home and the Ducks have been after him, but so have Arizona State, Colorado, and Texas.
There is no expert picks from Rivals or 247 sports right now, but there’s not much reason to feel optimistic about Michigan’s chances unless they are able to get a visit this fall after he commits.
