One of Michigan’s top safety priority recently released his list of top five schools, and the Wolverines are still in the race.
2020 4-star Jordan Morant is ranked as the No. 159 player in the country and the No. 10 safety, according to the 247Sports composite.
Penn State, Ohio State, USC and Texas A&M join Michigan in the final group of schools. The crystal ball predictions read 55 percent Michigan and 27 percent Penn State, with all of the most recent picks coming in for the Wolverines.
This seems to really be a three-team race between the Big Ten schools, as I can’t find any indication Morant has ever visited USC and Texas A&M. Having Anthony Campanile’s brother as Morant’s head coach has really played a key part in this recruitment as Michigan wrestled control away from the Nittany Lions early on.
Still, Morant is heading into a Penn State official visit next weekend and then Michigan the weekend after that, so it is still a race. And this race will be going on for a while, as Morant has announced he will be deciding at the All-American Bowl on January 4. Ideally, Michigan would get him to announce earlier than that, but we’ll see how it plays out.
