2024 RB Jordan Marshall puts Michigan football, Ohio State in top 4
It’s always tough to go to Ohio State and pick up a player if you’re from the University of Michigan. It’s even harder if said player has an offer from Ohio State. And even more if you are a player coveted by the Buckeyes.
Michigan football strives to do just that. Currently, the Wolverines have two commitments from Ohio State, but neither star four Luke Hamilton and Ted Hammond have offers from OSU. But corn and blue are trending positively for Jordan Marshall, four-star Archbishop Moeller of Cincinnati, Ohio in 2024 — who just put Michigan in his top four along with Ohio State, Tennessee and Wisconsin .
