Michigan football is on a roll.
On Wednesday, the Wolverines received a commitment from 2022 Austin (Tex.) Westlake three-star defensive end Ethan Burke. Earlier in the week, 2023 Richmond (Va.) Benedictine four-star defensive lineman Joel Starlings pledged to the class.
Now the maize and blue are getting local.
2023 West Bloomfield (Mich.) three-star wide receiver Semaj Morgan has been something of a mainstay on campus, having made several visits to Ann Arbor. His former head coach, Ron Bellamy, is the safeties coach for the Wolverines, to boot.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound receiver hinted on Instagram on Wednesday evening that he may end his recruitment, and he did just that at night, committing to Michigan on Twitter.

Morgan has offers from several MAC schools as well as Ole Miss and Missouri. His stock will certainly rise in the near future.
247Sports’ Allen Trieu describes him as a future Power Five starter:
Dynamic, lightning in a bottle type of player. Camp season really highlighted his ability to create separation with his explosiveness and suddenness. Also shows good ball skills in tracking it in the air and making tougher catches. He demonstrated that in his sophomore season as well and can be a threat on jet sweeps, as a return man, and on screens with his open-field ability. Not a big guy, but has shown the catch radius and other tools to make up for that. Fits well in most of today’s wide open offenses.
Morgan is rated the No. 336 player in the 2023 class per the 247Sports Composite, the No. 44 wide receiver, and No. 5 player in the state of Michigan.
