247 report: A top-150 South Carolina CB commit is strong on Michigan…….

A top-150 South Carolina CB commit is strong on Michigan, while a top-75 linebacker goes into great detail about the state.

We’ll examine Michigan’s pursuit of an ex-Ohio State commit who played with a few current Wolverines, a top-75 linebacker expressing interest in Michigan, and an SEC commit who has high expectations for Michigan in today’s Recruiting Roundup.

Ex-Ohio State commit with connections to Michigan players is being pursued by the Wolverines
Landing a four-star defensive back is always fantastic, but it would be even more satisfying for the Wolverines if the player had previously committed to Ohio State.

Recently, Blake Woodby, a cornerback for Baltimore who is ranked 73rd in his class by 247Sports, renounced his verbal commitment to the Buckeyes. Even when it appeared that he would be moving to Columbus, LaMar Morgan, the secondary coach at New Michigan, had already been in touch with the player.

Woodby said, “He hit me up while I was committed,” to EJ Holland ($) of On3. “He inquired about my family and other such matters. He texted me once more, and now we are meant to speak more. All I want to do is listen to him. I want to hear what he has to say because he seems interested so I can make the best choice.

Woodby played high school ball with linebacker Jaishawn Barham and defensive end Derrick Moore, thus he has ties to a couple current Wolverines. Woodby is also drawn to the attraction that accompanies being a Michigan man.

Woodby remarked, “I like that Michigan puts together good classes.” “I know a few of the local men who play there. The Michigan program is highly esteemed. They participate in the greatest rivalry in the annals of collegiate football. They have a reputation for having strong defenses. They are known for introducing guys to the league.

If Michigan continues to pursue him, Woodby also said that he might pay Ann Arbor a visit. He has offers from Michigan as well as Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame, Oregon, and Penn State, to name a few.

Carolina CB commits while taking Michigan into account.
Maintaining communication with players you wish to have on your team is always a good idea in the unpredictable world of recruitment, even if they have already committed to another team. That is precisely the situation with South Carolina commit Shamari Earls, a cornerback who is ranked just outside of the top-100 in the 247Sports composite for the 2025 class.

Recently, Morgan traveled to Chester, Virginia to have a face-to-face meeting with Earls.

“I’m so glad he stopped by,” Earls said to Holland ($) of On3. “I took a chance on him since he took a chance on me. We had a lot in common, including how I would fit into the program. It went surprisingly nicely. Up they came on my board. He complimented me on my movement, saying that many large corners couldn’t move that way. He enjoys the way I press with my feet.

A little over a month ago, Earls committed to the Gamecocks, but he enjoys Michigan’s emphasis on education. Another reason Michigan football is still in the running is because he enjoys the school’s atmosphere.

“They currently rank in the top four,” Earls stated. “Coach Morgan is someone my entire family should talk to on the phone and get to know a little better. We’re planning a summer date or going to a game up there. The only Big Ten university I’m thinking about is Michigan. It will ultimately boil down to intuition and getting to know the coaches.

Earls is planning official trips to South Carolina and Virginia, and he is also thinking about Texas A&M, Georgia, and Michigan. We’ll be sure to update you on his hiring.
