Michigan hosted a number of highly touted recruits for unofficial visits over the weekend, including Top 100 West Bloomfield (Mich.) High defensive lineman Brandon Davis-Swain.

The in-state prospect committed to Notre Dame in April over offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Tennessee, USC and others. However, the Irish have struggled on the field, causing some of their pledges to explore other options.

If the Wolverines go full steam on Davis-Swain next cycle, he would be an obvious flip candidate. The Wolverine’s EJ Holland breaks down where Michigan stands and how Davis-Swain would fit in Ann Arbor.

Watch the full video below.

At 6-foot-2, 240 pounds, Davis-Swain isn’t the ideal fit for Michigan as an EDGE. However, he could develop into a Kris Jenkins-type prospect. The talent is there as evidenced by his ranking and performances this offseason — he was named DL MVP at the Under Armour camp in Ohio.

Davis-Swain has plenty of ties to the Michigan program. He is a former teammate of U-M running back Donovan Edwards and safety Makari Paige. He is also a current teammate of Michigan commits Amir Herring and Semaj Morgan. Lastly, Davis-Swain played for Michigan assistant Ron Bellamy, who led West Bloomfield to a state title before joining the U-M staff.

“I like the school a lot,” Davis-Swain told The Wolverine this offseason. “I like the coaching staff. Coach Bellamy is a great person. He’s a cool dude. We were happy for him when he got the job at Michigan job. He’s just a really nice guy.”

Davis-Swain is ranked as the No. 8 defensive lineman and No. 58 overall prospect nationally for next cycle, per the On3 Consensus.

Michigan has two early commits in its 2024 recruiting class — On300 Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth linebacker Mason Curtis and rising Wallingford (Conn.) Choate Rosemary Hall defensive lineman Manuel Biegel.
