Michigan Football Commitment Nate Marshall After Auburn Visit: ‘It’s Pretty Close’


Michigan football’s top 2025 commit, Nate Marshall, visited Auburn this weekend, posing a threat to his commitment to the Wolverines. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound defensive lineman, ranked 41st overall in the 2025 class by 247 Sports and fourth among D-linemen, committed to Michigan in April.

Marshall’s visit to Auburn is concerning for Michigan, as both Auburn and Miami are actively trying to flip him. His commitment was initially surprising due to Michigan’s struggles in landing top-100 recruits in recent cycles, partly because of their NIL approach, which tends to be less competitive financially.


Marshall, from Fenwick, Illinois, is Michigan’s highest-ranked commitment in the 2025 class, and losing him would be significant. Michigan offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore emphasized that the school must be the right fit, implying that those seeking guaranteed money might not choose Michigan. This stance could cost them top talent unless they reconsider their NIL strategy, a point of contention given that rivals like Ohio State are competitive in this aspect.

Auburn’s recent recruiting success, likely influenced by NIL, is a concern. Michigan’s ability to sell player development is also hindered by having a new D-line coach and defensive coordinator. While Wink Martindale and Joe Esposito have strong track records, they still need to prove themselves at Michigan.

After his Auburn visit, Marshall stated, “It’s Auburn or Michigan. I would say it’s pretty close, especially after this visit.” This comment suggests Michigan needs to regain momentum to retain his commitment.
