Sometimes the spontaneous commitments are the best ones.

Jim Harbaugh received a pair of those on Friday, as class of 2022 three-star prospects Alessandro Lorenzetti and Kevonte Henry each joined the Michigan football team’s 2022 recruiting class. Lorenzetti — an offensive lineman from Canada — earned an offer from the Wolverines less than two weeks ago, while Henry — a California native — has been a top EDGE target for quite some time.

With Lorenzetti and Henry now in the fold, Michigan’s 2022 recruiting class is up to 12 total pledges. Led by five-star CB Will Johnson, the group ranks No. 13 nationally and No. 4 in the Big Ten. As more top targets continue to set commitment dates after Victors Weekend, watch for the Wolverines to break into the top 10 before the end of the summer.

Luke Hughes signs with Michigan

Beyond the gridiron, Michigan made a big recruiting splash on the ice Friday when the Wolverines announced the signing of defenseman Luke Hughes. The younger brother of former Michigan standout Quinn Hughes (Canucks) and 2019 NHL Draft No. 1 overall pick Jack Hughes, hockey runs in the family.

Hughes is set to arrive in Ann Arbor following a stint with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program, where he led the program in points (34) across 38 games. He’s widely projected as a top-10 pick in this year’s NHL Draft.
