Sherrone Moore and the Michigan football program have maintained an assertive presence on the recruiting circuit, consistent with the promises made by the new Wolverines head coach.

During the past week, Michigan football welcomed several highly sought-after prospects to campus, including Jadon Blair and Andrew Babalola, both ranked within the top-100 recruits.

Initial feedback from these visits has been positive, and Tony Alford, the newly appointed running backs coach, has made notable strides in recruiting running backs. Notably, three top-200 running backs, two hailing from Ohio, explored the Wolverines program over the past week.

This weekend, the focus shifts to the offensive line, with six visitors, five of whom are offensive linemen, according to On3.com. Among them is Douglas Utu, a prominent interior offensive lineman, standing at 6 feet 5 inches and weighing 300 pounds, with a ranking of 57th overall.

Utu, who attended Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, shares a background with Micah Kaapana, a three-star running back from the 2024 class, whose potential was underestimated.

However, Utu is not the sole high-priority target this weekend. Jack Lange, a towering 6-foot-8 offensive lineman from Eureka, Missouri, is also present. Despite official visits lined up with Nebraska and Missouri, as well as Michigan football, Lange is perceived to favor Notre Dame. Yet, given Michigan’s previous successes, such as securing Andrew Sprague in the 2024 class, the Wolverines could present a compelling case.

Kaden Strayhorn, Hardy Watts, Michael Carroll, and three-star defensive back Josh Johnson are among the other recruits visiting Michigan this weekend. While there are no immediate signs of commitments, the positive momentum generated by these interactions could soon yield the first commitment of the Sherrone Moore era.
