Michigan picked up two commitments on Friday in the 2022 class from four-star defensive backs Kody Jones and Taylor Groves. Both players hail from the state of Tennessee and both are already among the top ranked commits for the Wolverines in 2022.
But there is another player from the state of Tennessee who took notice of Groves and Jones committing to Michigan — 2022 three-star cornerback Myles Pollard.
Pollard was offered by co-defensive coordinator/cornerbacks coach Maurice Linguist on Jan. 28. He also holds offers from Alabama, Washington, Miami, Michigan State, Oregon, Oklahoma, Florida State, Tennessee, Penn State and more.
He tweeted out two “M’s” after Jones and Groves committed.

Speaking with Maize n Brew on Friday, Pollard said he already was aware the commitments were happening, and that the two newest Wolverines want him to join the fold.
“I knew it was happening and it’s something they all want me to join,” Pollard said.
Groves confirmed with Maize n Brew that he and Jones are hoping Pollard can join them in Michigan’s class.
“For sure,” Groves said. “We want to build the best defensive back class in the country.”
The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder from Brentwood, Tennessee plays his high school ball at Ravenwood. The Wolverines have a feather in their cap already for this recruitment, because his school is the same one that produced 2021 Michigan signee Junior Colson.
Michigan is looking to add several more defensive backs in the 2022 class. Some of the prospects Michigan is in on include in-state five-star corner Will Johnson, five-star corner and USC commit Domani Jackson, five-star safety Keon Sabb, four-star corner Jaeden Gould, in-state four-star defensive back Dillon Tatum and three-star safety Sherrod Covil.
Pollard is ranked the No. 35 cornerback, No. 16 player in the state of Tennessee and No. 372 overall on 247Sports’ composite in the 2022 class. You can check out his highlights from his junior season below.
