Michigan Football on cusp of landing two more four-star recruits in near future

The 2021 class could be adding a few more good pieces in the coming days.

The Michigan Wolverines’ 2021 recruiting class was a bit of a concern to some fans early on for the lack of blue chip recruits as the class began to grow earlier this spring. Months later and a number of four-star commits to show for it, Jim Harbaugh’s staff currently has the nation’s No. 6 overall class, which is second in the Big Ten only to Ohio State.

There are still plenty of talented targets on the table to add, as well. The next wave could begin as early as this weekend.

Four-star defensive end Quintin Somerville (No. 150 nationally), who has been trending heavily to Michigan, will make his college decision on June 20. So there’s a prospect that seems like he is on the way almost all but assuredly.

The Wolverines have also been the subject of growing buzz for the services of four-star wide receiver Cristian Dixon (No. 210 nationally) with all six 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions in favor of the Maize and Blue. Three of them have come in the last seven days with the most notable in the form of 247 Director of Football Recruiting Steve Wiltfong, who puts his confidence meter at a “9” that he winds up at Michigan ($). More than a few people in the know seem to think a commitment could come anytime now.

Those two commits would not be enough to lift the class into the top five nationally, but would put them right on the cusp of passing USC and get into that fifth spot. With several elite targets on the board still in running back Donovan Edwards, offensive linemen Rocco Spindler and Garrett Dellinger, tight end Thomas Fidone and others still uncommitted,

Michigan has a real shot to not only stay towards the top of the country in the rankings, but potentially give Harbaugh his best class since arriving in Ann Arbor. His current top recruiting class was the haul the school brought in for 2017, which saw them rank fifth nationally. However, well over half of that class never made it to their senior seasons at Michigan, so heres to hoping these hauls moving forward are able to retain some of the top players that join — or at least get them to the NFL after three years.

The Wolverines currently have 17 players committed to the 2021 class.
