Michigan Wolverines in the running for four-star wide receiver with NFL family ties

Four-star wide receiver Micah Gilbert has included the Michigan Wolverines on his top-seven list, along with North Carolina, Notre Dame, Pitt, Duke, Virginia Tech and South Carolina. Despite a wrist injury cutting his season short, Gilbert had an impressive junior year with Charlotte Christian, accruing 39 receptions for 486 yards and six touchdowns in just seven games. Standing at 6-foot-3 and 203 pounds, Gilbert has the size that the Wolverines are looking for in this recruiting cycle.

Although Gilbert has already visited Michigan back in March, he has also seen North Carolina, Pitt, and South Carolina during the spring. While there was a possibility he would return to Ann Arbor for the spring game, he ultimately opted for North Carolina instead. Gilbert comes from a football family, with his brother, Mark, playing cornerback at Duke, and three cousins who also played college football, including Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Gilbert would be a unique and valuable addition to Michigan’s 2024 class, providing a skillset that the Wolverines don’t currently have much of. With Semaj Morgan and Fredrick Moore both standing around 6-feet tall, Gilbert’s size would be a welcome addition to the program. Currently ranked as the No. 37 wide receiver, No. 5 player in the state of North Carolina and No. 242 overall prospect in the 2024 recruiting cycle, Gilbert would provide five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis with a big body to throw to.
