Michigan Targets Lead IMG to Perfect Season
IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL) finished off an undefeated season with a win over Bishop Sullivan Friday night, finishing at #2 in the country behind only Bishop Gorman (NV). IMG is home to a roster full of high-major Division One talent every year, including top offensive lineman Cesar Ruiz and linebacker Jordan Anthony, who both hold Michigan offers. The two could make a big impact early on in Ann Arbor with the number of Wolverines that will leave campus after this season.

King and Cass Tech are no strangers to the State Championship, and two victories could add another resume-builder to an already impressive stat line for Thomas, Peoples-Jones, and Michigan commit Jaylen Kelly-Powell. Thomas and Peoples-Jones should be a little warmer on Michigan after a commit from Kelly-Powell, but there is still plenty of time before National Signing Day to see some drama.
Big Group of Visitors On Hand for "Snow Game"
Michigan hosted another large visit weekend for Saturday's showdown against Indiana, treating recruits to one of the more memorable gameday experiences in recent memory. Among the visitors was five-star offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson, who holds offers from Michigan, Alabama, and Florida State (among others). The Wolverines also hosted three-star defensive back Elijah Hicks, a Notre Dame commit who announced his verbal to the Irish after an official visit earlier in the season. Michigan has a group of very talented DBs targeted in this recruiting cycle, but a flip from Hicks would be a welcome addition to the already-9th-ranked recruiting class that the Wolverines boast.
