Michigan earns commitment from one of top 2024 prospects out of Ohio
Michigan landed a big one on Tuesday. One of the top-ranked recruits from the state of Ohio announced he has committed to the Wolverines.
Cincinnati (Oh.) Archbishop Moeller running back Jordan Marshall picked the Wolverines over other finalists Ohio State, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. Marshall has official visits to each of his finalists lined up throughout June, but decided to pull the trigger ahead of time. It will be worth monitoring if he takes those visits still — he’s scheduled to go to UM on June 9 and Ohio State on June 23 — or decides to shut things down.
First of all, I just want to thank my mom and dad, family, friends, and the Moeller Community For supporting me. With that being said…I Will be Committing to the University of Michigan 💙💛 #GoBlue @CoachMarkElder @MHart2032 @Coach_SMoore @coachclink pic.twitter.com/M0pmKWYpg6

Marshall is enjoying a prolific high school career. He was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in the state of Ohio as a junior after running for 1,951 yards and 30 touchdowns. He also caught 19 passes for 364 yards and 4 more scores.
A 5-foot-11, 195-pound running back, Marshall ranks as the No. 3 prospect in the state for the 2024 class. In the industry-generated 247 Composite, he’s also the No. 7 running back and the No. 91 overall recruit in the class.
The Wolverines now have 8 known commitments to their 2024 class — which ranks 5th in the country so far. Marshall is the first running back in the class. You can see his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
