Michigan football finished up a very eventful weekend with what appears to be good news.

Over the weekend head coach, Jim Harbaugh and Michigan football welcomed 15 of the top high school recruits across the country for an on-site visit.

The top name visiting the Wolverines happened to be the nation’s no. 2 overall recruit, Walter Nolen.  Nolen is the country’s top defensive lineman and tweeted about his visit to Ann Arbor over the weekend.

Why is this important?

Recently Nolen had a visit with the Florida Gators, and things went well by all accounts, but he left campus without committing. But, of course, you can’t take teenagers tweeting too seriously these days.  Nolen also left Ann Arbor without committing to the Wolverines, but let’s hope Michigan is a step ahead of Florida based on the more recent visit.

JaMichael Garrett of GBM Wolverine predicted Michigan football would come away with at least three commitments this past weekend, and the number sits at two with likely more to come throughout the week after these kids weigh all of their options.

Michigan football came away with two commitments after an eventful weekend of official visits.

Although the top prize over the weekend has yet to make a decision, the Wolverines did land a couple of commitments.

Michigan football received a commitment is a three-star linebacker from Belleville High School, Aaron Alexander.  The second is the 42nd ranked running back in the 2022 draft class, three-star recruit C.J. Stokes.

The product of South Carolina will be a work in progress for newly appointed running backs coach Mike Hart.  Please don’t get too tied up in the ranking or star system; it’s Michigan football’s responsibility to develop these kids and get them to play well beyond their initial college ranking.

Next. 3 players projected to get drafted in top 10 in 2021. dark

Also, here are some names to watch over the next few days and weeks. The Wolverines recently hosted LB Sebastian Cheeks, QB Connor Harrell, QB Justyn Martin, and  TE Oscar Delp.
