Michigan football’s 2020 recruiting class continues to add top-ranked safeties, as in-state 4-star Makari Paige just gave his pledge to the Wolverines.

The 6-foot-3, 182-pound West Bloomfield native committed to Michigan over Penn State, Ohio State and Kentucky. He held other offers from Oklahoma, Notre Dame, West Virginia, Wisconsin and others.

For a while, it seemed like Paige was destined to go out of state for his collegiate career. Regardless, the Wolverines are ecstatic for him to join their defensive backfield in the 2020 class, alongside 4-star cornerback Andre Seldon, 4-star safety Jordan Morant and 4-star safety RJ Moten.

Paige also joins West Bloomfield teammate, 3-star linebacker Cornell Wheeler.
