The visit lineup continues to grow this summer for the Michigan Wolverines, as more and more prospects are locking in their official visits to Ann Arbor when the dead period is tentatively scheduled to be lifted after May 31.

June 18 is gearing up to be a big weekend in Ann Arbor, but let’s start today’s Michigan Recruiting Roundup with a prospect slated to visit the weekend prior.

California QB sets OV to AA

One of Michigan’s top options at quarterback in the 2022 class, three-star Nate Johnson, confirmed on Twitter he will be officially visiting Michigan during the weekend of June 11. This will be Johnson’s first time in Ann Arbor.

The 6-foot-2, 183-pounder plays high school football in Clovis, California. He received his offer from Josh Gattis back in February, and has been a top target since then.

Along with Michigan, Johnson also has offers from Utah, San Diego State, San Jose State, Oregon State and Fresno State.

The options at the quarterback position as of now are pretty slim for the Wolverines. Johnson and recently-offered three-star Texas quarterback Alex Orji are the only standouts at the moment. The other options have either committed elsewhere or left Michigan off their top lists.

So given these circumstances, it is pretty big news the Wolverines are able to get Johnson on campus for an official. We will definitely know more about his interest in the program after the visit, so stay tuned for more on that front in the coming months.

Texas RB locks in OV

According to The Michigan Insider’s Brice Marich ($), 2022 three-star running back Dillon Bell is officially visiting Michigan during the Victors Weekend of June 18.

Bell, who is listed at 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, also has played quarterback and wide receiver for The Kinkaid School in Houston, Texas. During his junior year, Bell ran for 607 yards and 18 touchdowns, while also catching 24 balls for 350 yards and two touchdowns.

Mike Hart offered Bell back on March 17, so it really didn’t take much time for Bell to become interested enough in Michigan to want to set up an official visit.

Bell, who is ranked No. 581 overall on the composite, also holds offers from the likes of Penn State, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Utah, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and more. There is one crystal ball in for Baylor.

Florida LB set to officially visit for Victors Weekend

Another prospect set to officially visit Ann Arbor from June 18-20 is 2022 three-star linebacker Omar Graham Jr., he announced on Twitter earlier this week.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder from Fort Lauderdale, Florida is among the top targets for the Wolverines at linebacker in 2022. George Helow is the main recruiter here and offered Graham Jr. on March 5. Since then, schools like Penn State, Oregon, and Louisville have also offered him a scholarship. Other schools like Florida State, Miami and Auburn are also showing legitimate interest, despite his low ranking of No. 564 overall on the composite.

Other than Michigan, Graham Jr. is slated to visit Penn State from June 11-13.

That’s all for now! Come back next Tuesday for another Recruiting Roundup.
