2024 Recruiting Update: May 29, 2023

Michigan offered UMass grad transfer Josh Wallace, who’s a 6’1″, 190-pounder. Wallace was a 3-star and the #142 cornerback overall back in the class of 2019 when he came out of Hyattsville (MD) DeMatha. He made 41 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, 1 fumble recovery, and 8 pass breakups in 2022. Wallace is a two-time team captain and has started 34 games for the Minutemen.


Princeton (NJ) Hun School defensive tackle Owen Wafle (4-star, #41 DL, #405 overall) was offered by Michigan and decommitted from Notre Dame. Notre Dame has a policy like Brady Hoke used to have, where visiting other schools means you’re no longer considered a commitment. Wafle plans to visit Ann Arbor and therefore sacrificed his spot in Notre Dame’s class, so some crystal balls came in for Wafle to commit to the Wolverines.


Peculiar (MO) Raymore-Peculiar tight end Jaden Reddell (4-star, #3 TE, #55 overall) committed to Georgia.

James Turner, Wolverine

James Turner

Louisville transfer kicker James Turner has committed to Michigan.

Turner was listed at 6’0″ and 205 lbs. at Louisville last season, where he made 20/22 field goals and 38/39 extra points during the 2022 season. Before that he was 14/22 on field goal attempts and 46/48 on extra points in 2021, and he went 13/15 on field goals and 40/40 on extra points in 2020. Altogether, that makes him 47/59 on field goals. He has also handled kickoff duties at times.

Turner was a class of 2019 prospect from Saline (MI) Saline who did not get an offer from the Wolverines at the time. Michigan did not sign a kicker in 2019, but they had nabbed Quinn Nordin (2017) and Jake Moody (2018) in back-to-back classes at that point.

Turner should be Michigan’s starting placekicker this fall. Redshirt sophomore Tommy Doman has not been used much so far in his career, but he will probably fill in at punter for the departed Brad Robbins and perhaps on kickoff duties. Meanwhile, the placekicking duties will likely be a battle between Turner and incoming freshman Adam Samaha, with Novi (MI) Catholic Central walk-on product Charlie Mentzer also in the mix.

This is the first player to commit to Michigan in the spring portal window, but Michigan landed several players right after the season, including TE A.J. Barner, LB Ernest Hausmann, OL La’Darius Henderson, OL Chris Hinton, OL Drake Nugent, DE Josaiah Stewart, and QB Jack Tuttle

Jack Tuttle, Wolverine

Former Indiana (and Utah) quarterback Jack Tuttle committed to Michigan on Tuesday as a sixth year transfer. He joined former Indiana tight end A.J. Barner in picking the Wolverines, coming in as a package deal.

Tuttle was listed at 6’4″ and 210 lbs. last year for the Hoosiers. He was the backup for the Hoosiers behind Connor Bazelak, and in his one game against Penn State, he went 9/12 for 75 yards and 1 touchdown before a shoulder sidelined him for the rest of the year. As a redshirt junior in 2021, he went 45/87 for 423 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. Altogether, he has completed 57.1% of his passes for 901 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 6 picks in his career.
