Recent transfer portal activity for Michigan football has stirred significant interest.

Until recently, Michigan football remained one of the few college teams yet to secure a commitment through the transfer portal. However, the tide turned when four-star linebacker Jaishawn Barham pledged to join the Wolverines. Hailing from Maryland, Barham held a 149th ranking overall in the 247 Sports composite rankings during his high school days. His impressive performance over two seasons at Maryland showcased 98 total tackles, seven sacks, and an interception of quarterback J.J. McCarthy.

Barham is anticipated to step into a starting role for the upcoming season, likely not the solitary addition from the transfer portal for Michigan football.

The team has been actively seeking a wide receiver and eyeing a defensive back. In the wide receiver department, former Wake Forest wideout Jahmal Banks has emerged as a new target. Banks boasted 59 receptions, 653 yards, and four touchdowns for the Demon Deacons last season. Standing at 6-foot-4 and weighing 205 pounds, Banks is slated to visit Michigan football. His potential acquisition could fill the void left by graduate Cornelius Johnson, although finalizing his commitment remains pending as visits don’t always guarantee closure.

The Wolverines have also set their sights on Upton Stout, the former cornerback from Western Kentucky. Stout has paid a visit to Michigan’s campus, exploring options that include USC. While projections hint at a possible commitment to Michigan football, the team’s interest seems to have expanded to former UConn cornerback Mumu Bin-Wahad.

Bin-Wahad, after an impressive season tallying 34 tackles, four tackles for loss, a sack, an interception, and two defended passes, is now being pursued by multiple programs. With two years of eligibility remaining, he joins the list of sought-after transfers at cornerback, along with Stout and former five-star recruit Domani Jackson.
