Insiders Say Michigan Has Best Chance Of Flipping Five-Star Committed To B1G Program

The Wolverines recently hosted Tarrion Grant, a five-star DB in the 2025 class and a Purdue commit, for a visit. Grant, a Tennessee native, is one to keep an eye on according to Rivals’ Greg Smith and Marshall Levenson.  They were asked if Michigan had the best chance of flipping Grant, and here were their responses:

Jellison: FACT. It’s beginning to look like déjà vu for the Boilermakers. In 2024, JoZiah Edmond was poached by the Wolverines and now the defending national champs are looking to do it for a second-straight year. Tarrion Grant has had several programs come calling since he committed to the Boilermakers, but none is a bigger threat than Michigan.

Smith: FACT. We’ve seen this movie many times before in the world of recruiting. A team that is trying to raise the profile of the program lands a verbal commitment from a potential star player. Only to later see that stud recruit land at a big-time program that is already established.

If anyone can hold this off from happening it’s Ryan Walters, who is a defensive coach and worked wonders with defensive backs before. However, the Wolverines are a different beast right now coming off a national championship. This would be a very tough blow if the Boilermakers lose Grant.

Of course before Michigan beat Purdue 41-13 last season, Walters said he has ‘evidence’ that Michigan cheated.

“It’s unfortunate. What’s crazy is they aren’t allegations. It happened,” he said. “There’s video evidence. There’s ticket purchases and sales that you can track back. We know for a fact that they were at a number of our games.”
