The Michigan football team just won the national championship, and the Wolverines are hoping that their success will lead to some positive recruiting momentum. So far, it's pretty early in the 2025 cycle, so it's hard to tell how that class is going to turn out. However, Michigan is already making moves in the 2026 class as they are working hard to land top-five quarterback prospect Brady Smigiel. Smigiel will be taking a visit to Ann Arbor in June.

Michigan football hasn't had to worry about their QB position during the past couple of seasons because of JJ McCarthy, but things will be different for them this year. The Wolverines have five guys competing for the starting job, but it seems like it will really come down to four. The QB position is the most important in football, and Michigan wants to make sure they get their guy in the 2026 class.

Brady Smigiel will take a visit to Michigan from June 18-20th, according to a report from Brice Marich. Smigiel is currently ranked as the #5 QB in the 2026 class.

Looking forward to meeting head coach Moore, dive into the offense and see Ann Arbor in the summer,” Smigiel said. “Also spending time with @CoachKCampbell.”

Smigiel is currently ranked as a four-star prospect according to 247 Sports. He is the #51 player in the 2026 class, the #5 QB and the #8 player in the state of California. Smigiel currently attends Newbury Park High School in Newbury Park, California.

This would be a good way for Michigan to start the 2026 recruiting class, and it would be a huge get for new offensive coordinator/QB coach Kirk Campbell. There is obviously a ton of time before that class starts to take shape, but the Wolverines are wasting no time trying to get the ball rolling.

Michigan football is making moves in the 2026 recruiting class, but there is still awhile before the 2025 class will be settled. Right now, the Wolverines have some work to do as their class ranks 40th in the country.

The quality of prospects is solid for Michigan as they average player rating is 92.23, but they are ranked 40th because they only have five commits. All five are four-stars.

Michigan has picked up some good talent, they just need to get more of it, and it seems like they will. There are a lot of targets that the Wolverines have that are heavily considering coming to play in Ann Arbor, and there is lot of time for this ranking to move up.
