The Michigan Wolverines aren’t done just yet in the class of 2022, but the main focus on today’s Recruiting Roundup, we will focus a bit more on some of the players in the 2023 class who you should familiarize yourself with. A lot of these 2023 guys we have been highlighting recently are bona fide top targets for the Wolverines, so keep these guys in mind for the next cycle.

But before we get to 2023, we have to start with an important development at the quarterback position in the 2022 class.

2022 four-star QB might be in AA this Saturday

In case you missed it earlier this week, 2022 four-star quarterback Justyn Martin de-committed from Cal. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder from Inglewood, California was being recruited by the Wolverines before that verbal pledge to Cal, but now that his recruitment is wide open, Michigan is taking another shot at him. Maize n Brew’s Trevor Woods caught up with Martin to get the latest.

“Coach Weiss talked to me today, just looking forward to getting me back up there. The staff has been in contact with my coach as well,” Martin said. “He was quick to text me so I’m thinking they are really serious about me.”

Martin also added he could be visiting Ann Arbor this weekend for when Michigan takes on Rutgers.

“I hope so. I play at 3:00 Friday, so I think there’s a good chance I could make it,” Martin said.

This is a major development in the 2022 class, considering Michigan already has a quarterback committed in three-star Jayden Denegal. Would Michigan be willing to take two quarterbacks? And would Denegal even be interested in being a part of a two-quarterback class if Martin would want in? These are questions I am most certainly interested in being answered, so stay tuned for more in this one.

2023 four-star enjoys first trip to U-M

A top 100 player who saw Michigan beat the brakes off Northern Illinois last weekend was 2023 four-star safety Braxton Myers. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder from Coppell, Texas made his first ever visit to the Big House, and it was a memorable one, as he recalled with The Michigan Insider’s Brice Marich ($).

“It was a great experience going to a Big Ten game with 106,000 people there to watch,” Myers said. “Atmosphere was great and can’t wait to go again.”

During his time in Ann Arbor, he got to meet all the coaches in person. The coaches he got to really bond with were Mike Macdonald, Steve Clinkscale and Ron Bellamy.

“They were really excited that I came up and they wanted my opinion,” Myers said.

Early on, Myers ranks as the No. 7 safety and the No. 99 overall prospect in his class on 247Sports’ composite.

2023 four-star DL trying to visit AA soon

Another target the Wolverines are going hard after in the 2023 class is four-star defensive lineman Jamaal Jarrett. Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 330 pounds, Jarrett hails from Greensboro, North Carolina.

Speaking recently with TMI’s Marich ($), Jarrett explained how the Michigan coaching staff is constantly communicating with him.

“Yes, I talk to them every day,” Jarrett said. “I’m talking with Jim Harbaugh, Courtney Morgan and coach Nua. I love them. There are definitely worth considering in the future.

“I’m trying my best right now to get up there.”

Jarrett is one of the many defensive lineman the Wolverines are actively recruiting in the 2023 class, so keep him in mind as the continues to unfold.

The No. 284 overall prospect in the 2023 class, Jarrett also holds offers from Florida, Georgia, Penn State, North Carolina, Virginia Tech and more.
