We’re talking four-star recruits today.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SEP 28 Rutgers at Michigan

Welcome into the Monday edition of Michigan Recruiting Roundup. Today we are talking about four-star products and their chances of becoming Michigan Men. Let’s get to it.

Theo Johnson set to make announcement later today

The No. 3 tight end and No. 69 overall prospect in the 2020 class will be announcing who he’ll be committing to today. Windsor (Ontario) product Theo Johnson will be announcing at his high school this afternoon.

TMI’s Steve Lorenz ($) believes that Johnson will be choosing either Michigan or Penn State and would be surprised if Georgia or Iowa landed him. Brice Marich believes that the bond Johnson has built with Michigan commit Braiden McGregor and his family shouldn’t be overlooked either.

Michigan is in a good position to land the four-star tight end, but it’s not a done deal just yet. Nobody really knows where Johnson’s headed between Penn State and Michigan until he announces. Be sure to check back in this afternoon, we’ll have an article about who Johnson commits to.

Michigan in good position to land four-star CB

Four-star 2020 cornerback Darion Green-Warren had his official visit at Michigan over the weekend, and it was one that appears to have put Michigan at the top of his list.

Green-Warren came with his father, mother, and sister and told TMI ($) his family sees him playing for Michigan. Along with that positive tid-bit, DGW also said that “Michigan is right there at the top.”

“I have until the 18th to figure it all out, and it’s a tough decision to be made. Michigan is right there though, and I’m serious about them. I canceled my visit to Penn State and I’M focusing on Michigan, SC, and Nebraska,” Green-Warren said.

For a long while, the assumption was Green-Warren would commit to USC, but the fact he hasn’t yet signals Michigan could be the favorite. The California product is the No. 183 overall recruit and No. 13 CB in the 2020 class.

CJ Stroud visits Michigan

Four-star 2020 QB C.J. Stroud (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) visited Michigan over the weekend. While we don’t know a ton about how the visit went at this moment in time, we do know he took in Michigan hoops win over Iowa at the Crisler Center on Friday night.

Michigan students definitely got the memo that Stroud was in the house and gave him some rock-star treatment shouting his name.

Stroud cancelled his visit to Oregon last week and will be visiting Ohio State this upcoming weekend. There are five crystal ball predictions in, and all have Stroud landing at Ohio State. However, it would be foolish to count Michigan out just yet as they got in the game for his services in the past 40 days. Stroud wasn’t on Michigan’s radar before commit JD Johnson had to medically retire from football. Obviously it’s hard to gain major ground in such a short amount of time, but there’s always the possibility that Stroud found himself at home in Ann Arbor and wants to spend his college years wearing maize and blue.

The 6-foot-2 QB is the No. 3 pro-style QB in the 2020 class and No. 133 player overall. Wherever Stroud decides to go, he’ll do so on early signing day and will be an early enrollee.
