Recruiting Roundup: Two Four-Star Top Targets Lock in Official Visits to Michigan

As June approaches, the 2025 recruiting class gears up for official visits to their preferred colleges.

In today’s Recruiting Roundup, we’ll delve into the recent scheduling of official visits to Ann Arbor by a couple of prospects, alongside an update on a prominent linebacker target.

Four-star RB Commits to Official Visit at U-M

Jordon Davison, a top running back in the 2025 class, and a four-star prospect ranked within the top 100, has confirmed his official visit to Michigan for the weekend of June 7, reports On3’s Chad Simmons. Davison has also scheduled official visits to Alabama (May 31), Oregon (June 14), and Ohio State (June 21).

Simmons indicates that Davison intends to commit to one of the schools he visits before his senior year, emphasizing his forthcoming decision after June.

Regarding Michigan, Davison expressed, “Coach Tony Alford and I have a special relationship. From day one when I worked out with him at camp, we have had that connection. Since he got to Michigan, we have remained in contact. He told me he was leaving Ohio State two days before it came out, so we have that type of relationship. With him at Michigan, that impacts my interest in them. I have been up there, and now have to get up there, see how I feel and go from there.”

Michigan may trail in Davison’s recruitment, but his visit to Ann Arbor could sway his decision as he heads to Oregon and Ohio State next. Ohio State currently leads with two Crystal Ball predictions.

Four-star OL Confirms Official Visit

Hardy Watts, a four-star offensive lineman on Sherrone Moore’s radar for the 2025 class, is planning an official visit to Michigan, according to 247Sports’ Brian Dohn. While the weekend remains unspecified, Michigan is the only school Watts has confirmed for an official visit.

Watts tentatively plans an official visit to Clemson in early June but requires school clearance due to a prior obligation. Other schools in contention for official visits include Alabama, Duke, Wisconsin, Georgia, Penn State, and Boston College.

Watts previously visited Ann Arbor unofficially in late March, showcasing his familiarity with the program. For Michigan, it’s about sealing the deal during his official visit.

At 6-foot-6 and 290 pounds, Watts offers versatility, capable of playing both interior and exterior offensive line positions. He ranks as the No. 225 overall prospect in his class and the No. 1 player from Massachusetts, according to 247Sports’ composite.

Four-star LB Eyes Official Visit to U-M

Brian Jean-Mary continues to pursue commitments since his return to Michigan, with linebacker Kamar Archie among his top targets for the 2025 class.

Though Archie has yet to schedule an official visit to Michigan, he’s prioritizing a trip before his commitment.

“We had a great talk,” Archie shared with On3’s EJ Holland about his meeting with Jean-Mary at Archie’s home this spring. “He got to speak with my parents. We talked about setting that official visit up. He told me to keep working. He also told me how special Michigan is. I’ve seen it for myself, so I know it is a special place.”

Archie has official visits set for Clemson, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas A&M but plans to visit Ann Arbor before the July dead period. He intends to commit after his official visits, underscoring the urgency for Michigan to schedule his trip promptly.

“I can’t wait to get back up there,” Archie expressed. “I want to be able to connect with the coaches more. Last time, I didn’t meet coach (Sherrone) Moore. I’ve heard he’s a great guy from (former teammate and incoming true freshman) Owen Wafle. I can’t wait to meet him. I think he’s going to do a great job.”

Standing at 6-foot-1 and weighing 225 pounds, Archie ranks as the No. 26 linebacker, the No. 7 player from New Jersey, and the No. 221 overall prospect in his class, according to 247Sports’ composite.
