### Top 2025 Linebacker Elevates Michigan Football Status

Michigan football recruiting has experienced a gradual uptick in activity as the Wolverines adapt to the revamped coaching staff led by head coach Sherrone Moore. The pace is picking up as Moore engages with potential recruits both on campus and remotely, particularly targeting those showing interest in the maize and blue.

One such prospect showing keen interest is Tavion Wallace, a highly regarded four-star linebacker from Jesup (Ga.) Wayne County in the 2025 class. Ranked as the 26th best player nationwide by 247Sports, he stands poised to potentially earn a coveted five-star status in due course.

Recently, Wallace unveiled his top 12 college choices, with Michigan football securing a coveted spot on that list. Notably, Michigan stands out as the sole northern representative among his selections, with the remaining options predominantly hailing from the SEC or the ACC conferences. Schools like [ppp1], [ppp2], Missouri, [ppp3], South Carolina, [ppp4], [ppp5], [ppp6], Louisville, and Florida State complete the roster of contenders.

While Wallace currently holds a single Crystal Ball prediction favoring Florida State as his likely destination, it is worth noting that his brother currently plays for one of his favored schools, specifically Kentucky.

Michigan’s inclusion in Wallace’s considerations is a positive sign for the Wolverines, not only due to their presence on the list but also because they are the most recent program to extend an offer. The invitation to visit Ann Arbor was officially extended on March 7, 2024, indicating a growing mutual interest between Wallace and the Michigan football program.
