Michigan’s offense is adding a veteran to the quarterback of Texas technology transfer Alan Bowman (Alan Bowman), who announced his decision to join Wolverine on Sunday.
Bowman entered the transfer portal on January 25 and is currently a graduate transfer, so he will be immediately eligible for Michigan qualifications. Last season, he threw 1,602 yards for Texas Tech University, made 10 touchdowns and 7 interceptions, and brought him three years of experience.
After the Wolverines entered quarterback on January 21, Dylan McCaffrey, quarterback Joe Milton entered the transfer portal on February 18. The only one leaving Michigan was Cade McNamara, who threw 425 yards and five touchdowns last season, and incoming freshman JJ McCarthy was the 25th recruit overall. And the second-place double-threat quarterback in the class.

Bowman provides Michigan with another option and some experience that can help the offense rank 78th in offensive yards per game and 44th in passing yards.
On Sunday, the Wolverines also joined the defense, and ESPN Junior 300 cornerback Will Johnson (the 29th overall recruit) worked on the plan.
Johnson is the top talent in the state of Grosse Pointe South in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. He chose Wolverine instead of Arizona, Ohio, Oklahoma and the University of Southern California, and is now the highest-ranked promise in Michigan’s 2022 class.
Johnson is now following in his father’s footsteps, Deon Johnson, who also played for the Wolverines in the early 1990s.
This commitment is very important to Michigan because it added an elite player to its middle school (the school is struggling for the 2020 season), and also because it looks like Johnson can join another school. He is a good friend of ESPN Defensive 300 guard Domani Jackson (Domani Jackson), who is committed to the University of Southern California.
The two had said they wanted to be a package deal, but Johnson is alone and now heads to Michigan. Ohio State’s recruitment seems to have gained momentum, especially when Jim Harbaugh fired Don Brown, Michigan’s defense was a bit uncertain.
Harbaugh hired Mike Macdonald from the Baltimore Ravens as the zone defense coordinator, and also hired Maurice Linguist from the Dallas Cowboys as the other zone defense coordinator and Second-level coach.
Linguists have worked in Dallas Cowboys, Texas A&M, Minnesota, Mississippi, Iowa and Buffalo, and are known as excellent recruiters.
Since hiring a linguist, Michigan has included Johnson, safety Taylor Groves (Taylor Groves) and athlete Kody Jones (Kody Jones) in the class. Wolverine now has six total commitments with Johnson and Jones, and is the second two in ESPN Jr. 300.
