Michigan gets verbal pledge from elite 4-star WR
Michigan has added some serious talent to its 2022 recruiting class.
Tuesday, the Wolverines received a verbal commitment from 4-star wide receiver Tyler Morris. The 6-foot, 175-pound athlete is a native of Bolingbrook, Illinois and made his announcement with a post on Twitter.
“I would like to start by thanking my parents and family for their support and guidance to help me become the person that I am today,” Morris wrote on Twitter. “After much thought, I am excited to announce that I will further my education & football career at the University of Michigan!”

Morris ranks as the No. 80 overall prospect in the 2022 recruiting class and is listed as the No. 10 wide receiver, per 247Sports. He held offers from two dozen programs, picking Michigan over other major programs such as Notre Dame, Penn State, Florida, Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
As a sophomore during the 2019 high school football season, Morris tallied over 1,700 yards of total offense and 24 touchdowns.
Comes from a multi-sport background which includes outstanding track results as he was entering high school. The athleticism shows on the football field. He can climb the ladder and get into the air to come down with passes that would be outside the radius for other players. He tracks the football very well and adjusts to passes. Fluid, loose-hipped and that helps him both after the catch and as a route runner.
Morris becomes the seventh player in the 2022 class to commit to Michigan. He is one of four players to have earned a 4- or 5-star ranking to verbally pledge to the Wolverines and is the second-highest ranked commit, behind 5-star cornerback Will Johnson.
Michigan’s class currently ranks No. 4 in the B1G and No. 21 nationally.
