Michigan adds four commitments, led by 4-star safety Jordan Morant
For the second straight recruiting class, Michigan has reeled in a top-flight safety.
Jordan Morant, a four-star safety from Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic, announced Sunday on Twitter he was committing to Michigan for the 2020 season, part of a big recruiting day for the Wolverines.
Morant is the No. 160 recruit in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite, the No. 10 safety in the country, and the No. 5 recruit overall in New Jersey. 247Sports considers Morant the top-ranked safety in the country.
He follows Daxton Hill, the top-ranked safety in the 2019 class, to Ann Arbor.
Morant also had offers from Penn State, Ohio State, Texas A&M, USC, Alabama, Clemson and a host of others.
He was one of four commitments to join Michigan's 2020 class Sunday. Three-star linebacker William Mohan of Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, N.Y., three-star defensive end Aaron Lewis of Williamstown, N.J., and three-star offensive lineman Reece Atteberry of Aurora, Colo., also committed, via Twitter.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Mohan is the No. 3 player from New York, according to the 247Sports Composite. He had offers from Ohio State, Michigan State and Penn State, among others.
The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Lewis originally committed to West Virginia, before flipping to Michigan. He's considered the No. 21 strong-side defensive end in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite, and No. 13 overall in New Jersey.
His offer list includes Baylor, Miami (Fla.), Ohio State, Penn State and Nebraska, among others.
The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Atteberry is ranked the No. 7 prospect in Colorado and No. 8 center in the nation, per the 247Sports Composite. He also holds offers from a host of top programs, including Notre Dame, Ohio State and Oklahoma.
Michigan has 14 commitments in its 2020 class, which as of Sunday evening was ranked No. 13 in the country, and No. 2 in the Big Ten, according to 247Sports.
