The good news keeps on coming for the Michigan Wolverines on the recruiting trail, as 2021 four-star linebacker Jaydon Hood just committed to the program.

Hood picked Michigan over other offers from Alabama, Penn State, Florida State, LSU, Texas A&M, Miami (FL), Kentucky, Minnesota and others.
The 6-foot-1, 212-pounder from St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is the second four-star linebacker to commit to Michigan in as many days, as Junior Colson committed to the program Sunday night.
Michigan offered Hood back on Jan. 23, and they have been recruiting him as hard as any linebacker in his class since then. He has not yet visited Ann Arbor due to the pandemic, so this is a huge recruiting victory for new linebackers coach Brian Jean-Mary.
Hood is the fourth linebacker to join Michigan’s class, alongside Colson, three-star Tyler McLaurin and three-star Casey Phinney. With Hood’s commitment, Michigan is likely done at the linebacker position in 2021.
The Wolverines moved up two spots to the No. 6 overall class after Hood’s commitment.
Hood is the No. 11 inside linebacker, No. 48 player in Florida and No. 298 overall player in the 2021 class, per 247Sports’ composite.
Watch Hood’s junior season highlights below. He may remind you of a former four-star Floridian linebacker from recent past.
