Michigan Football Secures Commitment from Running Back in 2025 Recruiting Class

Michigan’s football program has secured a significant addition to its 2025 recruiting class with the commitment of three-star running back Jasper Parker from Marrero (La.) Archbishop Shaw. The 6-foot, 189-pound athlete made his decision public on Saturday night following an official visit to Ann Arbor, opting for Michigan over offers from a notable list of 20 other programs, including powerhouses like Alabama, USC, and Oregon, among others.

Ranked as the No. 440 overall prospect and the 32nd running back nationally by the 247Sports Composite, Parker brings promising talent to the Wolverines’ roster. His commitment marks Michigan’s eighth verbal pledge for the 2025 cycle and the third in recent weeks, demonstrating the program’s ongoing momentum in recruiting under new head coach Sherrone Moore.

Leading Parker’s recruitment efforts were Michigan’s new running backs coach Tony Alford and receivers coach Ron Bellamy, who hails from Louisiana and shares a high school alma mater with Parker. Their combined efforts underscore Michigan’s strategic approach to securing talent across the country, leveraging both coaching expertise and regional connections.

As of the latest updates, Michigan’s recruiting class was positioned 40th nationally and 11th in the Big Ten, with a commendable average rating among its commits ranking third within the conference. This recent commitment aligns with the Wolverines’ continued efforts to bolster their roster with top-tier prospects under Moore’s leadership, reflecting a commitment to competitiveness and future success in collegiate football.
