One target remains for Michigan’s 2024 class — four-star WR Gatlin Bair

The Wolverines are hoping to round out their recruiting class with a speedy receiver.

On Wednesday, the Michigan Wolverines achieved a successful early signing period as all 27 verbal commitments officially signed, securing the No. 15 spot in the 2024 recruiting class. The Wolverines demonstrated prowess in recruiting, balancing their efforts on offense and defense with 12 players for the former and 15 for the latter. While some may express disappointment over not landing a top-10 class, the coaching staff is confident in their strategy of recruiting players with raw talent and high potential, consistently building an elite team.

Despite the absence of notable developments during the early signing period, both positive and negative, Michigan remains active in its recruitment efforts. The focus now centers on Gatlin Bair, a four-star wide receiver from Burley, Idaho, who is currently ranked as the No. 43 overall player and the No. 11 wide receiver in the 2024 cycle. Previously committed to Boise State, Bair reopened his recruitment following the dismissal of head coach Andy Avalos in November, narrowing his choices to Michigan and Oregon.

Although Bair refrained from committing during the early signing period, there is optimism within Michigan, as recruiting experts Brandon Huffman and Steve Wiltfong from 247Sports predict that the Wolverines will secure the talented wide receiver. Standing at 6 feet 2 inches and weighing 195 pounds, Bair aligns perfectly with Michigan’s criteria for a deep ball threat. Beyond his exceptional receiving skills, he is a standout track star, consistently delivering impressive times in the 100-meter and 200-meter events, solidifying his status as one of the fastest high school athletes in the country.
