While the Michigan football contingent is hopeful for a few commitments in 2023 to close out the cycle on national signing day,
Feb. 1, the Wolverines are also hoping for some continued momentum the following day, Feb. 2.
The maize and blue have long been after 2024 Harper Woods (Mich.) four-star defensive back Jacob Oden,
son of former Wolverines walk-on Rod Oden, the head coach of the Harper Woods program.
The younger Oden is listed as an athlete according to the 247Sports Composite,
and ranks as the No. 160 player in the 2024 recruiting cycle,
as well as the 17th-best athlete and fifth-best player in the state of Michigan.
On Tuesday morning, he announced that he will make his decision public on Feb. 2 at 6 p.m. EST,
and will choose between Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Iowa, and Tennessee.
