Michigan added an elite prospect to its 2025 recruiting class on Monday afternoon.

The Wolverines picked up a commitment from 4-star safety Ivan Taylor. He had previously been committed to Notre Dame before flipping his pledge to Michigan.

Taylor, in addition to being an elite prospect in his own right, is the sone of longtime NFL cornerback Ike Taylor. His father, who won 2 Super Bowls during his pro career, played collegiately at Louisiana Lafayette.

Taylor is a huge addition to Michigan’s 2025 recruiting class. He’s the No. 54 overall player and the No. 6 safety in the country, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 9 player from the state of Florida. It’s also a massive loss for Notre Dame, as Taylor was the second-highest ranked recruit in the Fighting Irish’s class prior to his decommitment.

Taylor attends West Orange High School in Winter Garden, Fla. He’s listed at 6-foot, 174 pounds.

Michigan has made significant progress in the class of 2025 this summer. The Wolverines now have 14 commits in the class of 2025, including 12 from blue-chip prospects. Overall, the group sits at No. 15 nationally, per 247Sports Composite rankings. Nine of Michigan’s 14 totally commits in this cycle have come since the beginning of June.

Here are some highlights from Taylor’s junior season:
