Michigan football fans, eager to know when the next commitment for the 2025 recruiting class will come, got a clue on Tuesday. EJ Holland of The Wolverine, a veteran Michigan football recruiting expert, projected that the Wolverines will land 2025 defender Maxwell Roy. Roy, a 6-foot-3, 270-pound player from Philadelphia, is ranked 219th overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings.

Although Roy’s recruitment has been relatively quiet, Michigan is expected to host him for a visit later this month. While Penn State, Ohio State, and Rutgers have offered him, Michigan is considered the frontrunner according to Holland. Adding Roy would be a solid boost to the 2025 class.

Michigan football needs momentum in its 2025 recruiting efforts, with just five committed players so far, all of whom are four-star or better. With a big month ahead, the Wolverines aim to set the stage for a productive July. Traditionally, Michigan has made significant recruiting progress during the summer months.

The first official visit weekend was promising. Douglas Utu is scheduled for a mid-week visit to Nebraska, while Michigan made a strong impression on five-star wideout Derek Meadows and top-100 safety Kainoa Winston. Additionally, four-star defensive lineman Jaylen Williams will visit Michigan this month, canceling a trip to Miami.

Securing another four-star defensive lineman like Roy would be significant for the Wolverines. Holland’s prediction was echoed by Zach Libby of The Wolverine. While there haven’t been any crystal ball projections yet, the On3 prediction machine gives Michigan football a 94-percent chance of winning Roy’s commitment.
