The Michigan Wolverines recruiting trail is blazing right now after the program earned the commit of 3-star Viper William Mohan. Several hints on Twitter from Matt Dudek may mean he will not be the only one over the coming days to commit to Michigan.

But with all this noise comes the Wolverines making another top list of a 3-star talent, as 2020 athlete Elijah Gaines put Michigan in his top seven Saturday afternoon.

This is yet another guy who seems to fly under the radar, but has offers from some of the top schools in the country. His top seven consists of Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, North Carolina, Duke, Virginia and Syracuse.

Gaines stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 200 pounds, and also runs a 4.5 40-yard dash. Michigan is recruiting him to play safety.

The upcoming senior attends Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia. He is the No. 645 recruit in the country, the No. 45 athlete in the nation and the No. 15 recruit in Virginia, according to 247Sports.
