Unsurprisingly, Michigan was included in 4-star defensive end Braiden McGregor’s list of top 10 schools on Monday morning. McGregor is arguably the most coveted prospect on the staff’s board given his proximity and performance at a position of need.
Thank you to all of the schools that have recruited me. By no means was this easy to narrow my list. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to build relationships with everyone that has recruited me. With that being said, here are my top ten schools. pic.twitter.com/DTq7JQVNWE— Braiden McGregor (@BraidenMcgregor) April 1, 2019
McGregor’s list is full of national programs, including Alabama, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon and Penn State.
The No. 2 player in the state of Michigan, and 201st overall, McGregor has been pursued heavily by the staff since he was offered last spring. His 6-foot-5.5, 248-pound frame projects to handle elite pass-rushing capabilities at the next level.
After making a southern swing through schools like Clemson, Florida, Alabama and LSU, McGregor says he’ll make trips to his midwest contenders, including Michigan again before deciding at the end of May. Getting him on campus near the end of his process will be a huge factor, as usual.
McGregor’s crystal ball picks read 62 percent Michigan, including two submitted today, 25 percent Notre Dame, and 12 percent Clemson.
It seems like this race is Michigan’s to lose, but it will have to hang on for a couple months with some of the best programs in the country taking swings.
