Michigan has reached into Ohio for another commitment, this time adding a defensive lineman to the 2024 recruiting class.

The player is Ted Hammond, a 6-foot-5 and 258-pound DL out of St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati. Hammond held a number of Power 5 offers from around the country at the time of his commitment, including from Iowa, Duke, Kentucky, Louisville, Minnesota, Oklahoma and others.

“First off, I would like to thank God for all the opportunities, gifts and talents that He has blessed me with,” wrote Hammond. “I wouldn’t be in this position without him…

“With that being said, I’m beyond blessed to commit to the University of Michigan!”

According to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, Hammond is a 3-star recruit and the No. 31 DL in the country for the 2024 recruiting class. He also rates as the No. 13 player out of Ohio.

Adding Hammond brings Michigan up to 5 commitments for the class of 2024. Hammond joins 4-star OT Luke Hamilton as players out of Ohio to commit to the Wolverines in the cycle.
