Jaden Mangham, formerly a safety at Michigan State, has officially joined the Michigan Wolverines.

Former Michigan State safety Jaden Mangham has officially registered at the University of Michigan, completing his transfer between the state’s football programs. Alongside him, Amorion Walker, Wesley Walker, Dominic Zvada, Ricky Johnson, and Aamir Hall are now listed as students in the University of Michigan’s directory. The only outstanding spring transfer commitment is C.J. Charleston, with approximately five weeks remaining before U-M begins fall camp for his official enrollment.

In keeping with past practices, the Wolverines have targeted positions of potential need through their efforts in the Transfer Portal. Following departures in the cornerback ranks, including Josh Wallace, Mike Sainristil, and DJ Waller, Michigan has bolstered its roster with UNLV’s Ricky Johnson and 2023 FCS All-American Aamir Hall, who made a strong impression at Albany last autumn after three seasons at Richmond. Both newcomers will vie for roles in a secondary highlighted by standouts like Will Johnson, Jyaire Hill, Ja’Den McBurrows, Kody Jones, Myles Pollard, Keshaun Harris, and others.

In the safety position, where Michigan faced losses due to Keon Sabb entering the Transfer Portal and Rod Moore’s injury, the team has secured commitments from Wesley Walker (formerly of Tennessee) and Mangham (formerly of Michigan State). They will compete for playing time alongside Makari Paige, Quinten Johnson, Zeke Berry, and Makari Paige, Quinten Johnson, Zeke Berry.

Mangham, who has two years of college eligibility remaining, is poised to make significant contributions for the Wolverines in both the 2024 and 2025 seasons.
