On Thursday, 247Sports unveiled its newest recruiting rankings from after The Opening Finals, and one of Michigan’s newest commitments shot up more than 200 spots, nearly making him a 5-star player.

4-star running back commit Zach Charbonnet moved up 179 spots in 247Sports’ rankings to No. 40 overall, nearly making him a 5-star player.

He is now No. 186 overall on the composite score, making him the fifth-highest recruit in Michigan’s 2019 class behind defensive end Chris Hinton, defensive end Stephen Herron Jr., defensive tackle Mazi Smith and offensive guard Nolan Rumler.

Other moves of note:

  • Michigan defensive end commitment David Ojabo shot up 344 (!) spots and is now a 4-star talent (4-star, No. 319 on the composite). For a guy who never played football until last year, that’s pretty damn impressive.
  • All-purpose back target Giles Jackson moved up 395 (!!!) spots to No. 208 to become a 4-star. He is still a 3-star on the composite.
  • Hinton moved down 10 spots to No. 36 and is now a 4-star recruit. This did not affect his composite score, though, as he remains a 5-star.
  • Top athlete Quavaris Crouch also moved down 10 spots to No. 37 and is also a 4-star recruit.
  • Top safety target 5-star Daxton Hill moved up one spot to No. 7.
  • Wide receiver target Kyle Ford is now a 5-star, No. 13 overall.
  • Cornelius Johnson, another wide receiver target, moved up 74 spots to No. 169.
  • Top defensive end target Zach Harrison moved down from the No. 1 overall spot to No. 2. Georgia commit defensive end Nolan Smith claimed the new No. 1 spot.
