Michigan’s piling up commitments on Sunday

The Michigan Wolverines had a big recruiting weekend, and now the commitments are really starting to roll in.

4-star safety Jordan Morant announced he has committed to Michigan.

The 5-foot-11, 212 pound New Jersey native out of Bergen Catholic is the No. 1 safety in the 2020 class according to 247 Sports, and the No. 47 overall prospect.

Morant chose Michigan over the likes of Ohio State and Penn State and held over 20 offers in all. Morant is yet another Michigan commit that can create a ripple effect, a domino effect of other prospects heading to Michigan. His presence in Ann Arbor, just like that of 2021 five-star QB commit J.J. McCarthy, can influence other players to head to U-M.

Morant initially announced (last month) that he would be announcing his commitment at the All-American Bowl in January 2020, but Michigan must have widened the gap enough for Morant to be convinced that Michigan will be his new home.

This is the second recruiting cycle in a row that Michigan has landed the top safety, first it was Daxton Hill, and now it’s Morant. Michigan continues to be an incredibly strong presence in the state of New Jersey, something that likely won’t change anytime soon with the likes of Chris Partridge, Don Brown, and Anthony Campanile on the staff.
