After not having a commitment for a long time, Michigan’s 2023 class is getting off to a hot start with four-star defensive lineman Joel Starlings joining the fold after his visit for the Ohio State game.

Michigan didn’t offer Starlings until Aug. 22 of this year, but he clicked immediately with the program. Biff Poggi, who has extensive ties to the DMV area from his time as a high school coach in Maryland, has been seen as helping Michigan in this recruitment.
