Check out the full list of 2021 Michigan football commitments:
1. OT Giovanni El-Hadi, 6’6” 280lbs. Sterling Heights, MI (Adlai Stevenson)
El-Hadi sports an elite frame for an offensive tackle as just a sophomore in high school. He’s raw in his technique, as you’d expect, playing a little high at times but his natural athleticism is very intriguing. He plays with an edge, burying opponents given the chance. His ceiling is extremely high, it’s easy to see what the coaches saw in his sophomore tape. He’s a guy I see shooting up the rankings as he gets to more camps and gets into his junior season.

2. QB JJ McCarthy, 6’2” 180lbs. Le Grange Park, IL (Nazareth Academy)
McCarthy is what every school is looking for in today’s game. He’s a not exactly a dual-threat, not-exactly a pro-style quarterback. He can pick apart defenses with his arm talent and accuracy but can run an option style offense and rip off big gains through designed runs, keepers, and scrambles. He’s very similar to the Shea Patterson’s and Justin Field’s of the world. If he continues to grow into the prospect he’s shown to be, he could be an instant impact player in Ann Arbor.
