Jim Harbaugh and Mike Macdonald have begun wooing some of the top recruits in the country to try and shape a new defense in Ann Arbor. However, one of their top targets, 2022 five-star safety Keon Sabb, committed to Clemson over the Wolverines, Georgia, Penn State and others on Saturday afternoon:

Sabb had originally left Michigan off his final list, but he took an official visit to Ann Arbor in late June and the Wolverines re-entered his recruiting process. Still, the top recruit had the Tigers and Dabo Swinney over the Wolverines when it came time to commit, and Michigan goes back to the drawing board at the safety position.
The Wolverines have zero safeties in the 2022 class, so they will continue to look at talent in that department.
2023 five-star LB keeps Michigan in top list
Some of the top names in the class of 2023 are beginning to shorten their lists of schools. Linebacker Jaiden Ausberry did just that on Saturday as the No. 30 overall player and No. 2 linebacker in the country had the Wolverines in his top 10 list.

An elite list of programs remains for Ausberry’s commitment including Georgia, Notre Dame, Alabama, Texas, Ohio State, his home-state LSU Tigers and more. There are currently no crystal ball predictions in for the five-star talent.
Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines currently have no commitments from the 2023 class.
