Michigan Football Receives Prediction To Land Top Transfer Target

Joey Slackman, a defensive tackle for Penn, was rumored to have canceled his planned official visit to Michigan earlier on Wednesday. It now seems that Slackman has set sail for Michigan.

However, not long after that was revealed, national writer Chris Hummer of 247Sports sent Michigan a Crystal Ball prediction, saying the Wolverines would recruit transfer from Western Kentucky, Upton Stout.

Stout is 247Sports’ fourth-best cornerback and the portal’s 39th-ranked player.

The 5-foot-9, 185-pound cornerback played his college ball at North Texas from 2020 to 2021. After that, he moved to Western Kentucky, where he made an immediate impression on the team.

In ’22, he led the team with four interceptions and ranked seventh on the team with 44 tackles. Despite playing in just seven games this season, Stout managed 29 tackles and one interception.

In college, Stout demonstrated his ability to play the safety position. However, Stout is considered a potential Mike Sainristil replacement at the nickel due to his size and skill.

Stout has already visited Ann Arbor, and based on reports, the Wolverines’ visit went extremely well. On3 reports that Michigan has a 48.1% chance of landing Stout.
