2024 Recruiting Update: August 7, 2023

August 7, 2023
Bennett Warren


Nappanee (IN) Northwood cornerback Jo’Ziah Edmond committed to Michigan (LINK).


Burley (ID) Burley wide receiver Gatlin Bair (4-star, #10 WR, #40 overall) committed to Boise State. This one stings a little bit because, you know, nobody chooses Boise State over Michigan when given the option. Unless you’re from Idaho and can be a hometown hero. Bair is one of the fastest recruits in the country, and he would have been exciting to see in a Michigan uniform. Or maybe he still will be. He will be going on his Mormon mission after high school and won’t get to college until 2026, so a lot can happen between August 2023 and January 2026.

West Bloomfield (MI) West Bloomfield cornerback Jamir Benjamin (3-star, #45 CB, #501 overall) committed to UCLA. The poor guy was committed to Stanford before David Shaw resigned and then Northwestern until Pat Fitzgerald was fired, so hopefully for Benjamin’s sake, Chip Kelly doesn’t have anything dramatic happen.

Hit the jump for more.

Washington (DC) Friendship Collegiate defensive end Dylan Stewart (5-star, #2 EDGE, #10 overall) committed to South Carolina. The Gamecocks’ NIL collective must be doing something right, because they landed Nyckoles Harbor in the 2023 class, too, and South Carolina isn’t anything special on the football field.

Sugar Land (TX) Fort Bend Christian offensive tackle Bennett Warren (4-star, #8 OT, #143 overall) committed to Tennessee. Warren had taken an official visit to Michigan and some experts predicted he would pick the Wolverines, but then things started to shift toward the Volunteers. He was also thought to be leaning toward Texas A&M by some, so it has been a roller coaster of a recruitment. Michigan already has five linemen committed, and a couple players have balked at becoming the sixth lineman in the class.
