Michigan dominated in-state recruiting for 2017’s class, and that trend is continuing so far for the 2018 class.

Four-star offensive tackle Ryan Hayes from Traverse City committed to Michigan on Saturday, May 27. Scout’s Allen Trieu confirmed this news.

Hayes is 6-foot-7, 252 pounds and ranked the No. 3 player in Michigan, according to 247 Sports, and also the No. 21 ranked player at his position. Aside from playing offensive tackle, he could also be used at tight end in Ann Arbor.

This is the second 2018 commit for Michigan in the last five days, the other being Jaylen Mayfield. Both Hayes and Mayfield are two of the top three ranked players in the state.

Trieu added the following comments about Hayes:

“Big framed high school tight end who will project to tight end at the next level. Very good athlete, a three-sport athlete who is coordinated, has good balance and flexibility. Used as a blocker as a tight end, so he has experience in the run game and does well in that aspect. Must learn to play tackle and continue to add weight and strength to play left tackle in the future, but has a very high ceiling as a tackle.”

The top three ranked players in Michigan are part of the Wolverine’s 2018 class.

Michigan jumped to the No. 7 overall 2018 recruiting class with Haye’s commitment, according to 247Sports.
