Traditionally, Michigan has been able to the pull the best talent in the state to Ann Arbor. Just in the past two recruiting classes, head coach Jim Harbaugh has signed six of the top ten recruits in the state in 2017 and 3 of the top ten in 2018. Both Michigan recruiting classes included the #1 ranked in-state recruits, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Aidan Hutchinson.

Devontae Dobbs, a 5-star offensive tackle out of Belleville, MI, is currently the #1 ranked recruit in Michigan. Dobbs has an offer from Michigan, but has showed little interest in visiting Michigan’s campus.

Harbaugh, however, has his eyes on three other top recruits from the state of Michigan.

Mazi Smith

Smith hails from East Kentwood in Grand Rapids MI. He is a defensive tackle who stands 6-foot-3 290 pounds. The 4-star recruit is ranked No. 4 in the state of Michigan and has accumulated a stellar collection of Big Ten offers. Some of the offers include Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State. The 4-star recruit has already unofficially visited Michigan in July, November (for the Ohio State game), and early in February. He is currently leaning toward Michigan, but Notre Dame is for sure to still in the picture.

Lance Dixon

Dixon is a 4-star outside linebacker from West Bloomfield, MI. The 6-foot-3 195 pound recruit is currently ranked as the No. 9 player from the state of Michigan. Some of his notable offers include Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Penn State. Dixon has yet to make the short trek to Ann Arbor for a visit, unofficial or official. He seems to be favoring in-state rivals Michigan State.

Marvin Grant

4-star safety Marvin Grant is the 5th ranked player in Michigan in the 2019 recruiting class and he attends Martin Luther King in Detroit, MI. The 6-foot-2, 200 pound recruit has offers from Kentucky and Central Michigan as well as other Big Ten offers including Minnesota, Indiana, and Maryland. Grant is currently projected to commit to Kentucky, but it is still much too early to write off Grant as a definite Wildcat.

Hi y’all! I am a Southern soul stuck in a Michigan girl’s body. One day I will escape these six month winters. But I have cherished every moment of growing up in Northern Michigan and attending a small high school where the morale of the town varies depending on the weather and how our sports teams are playing. I was raised in the maize and blue worshipping Tom Brady, Bo, and Charles Woodson. Every Fall Saturday began with me, my brothers, and my dad huddled in the living room watching College GameDay. We cheered on Michigan, Alabama (my younger brother is a bandwagoner), and any team playing Ohio State. And Sundays were designated to preventing my dad from having a heart attack while watching the Detroit Lions wait until the fourth quarter to actually play a game. In a nutshell, sports, to me, have always been extremely emotional and that’s why I became a fan.
