Michigan football went 0-for-2 on five-star, in-state quarterbacks this offseason and the Wolverine fanbase is less than pleased, to say the least. They are losing their minds and completely melting down.

At the beginning of June, former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr’s grandson C.J. committed to Notre Dame. C.J., a five-star quarterback in the class of 2024, attends high school just 20 minutes down the road from campus in Ann Arbor.

While there is never a “sure thing” in recruiting, Carr playing for his grandfather’s team of 13 years seemed like a no-brainer. He was born and raised in maize and blue, having lived and breathed the program his entire life.

But then he committed to play for the Irish.

Michigan fans blew their lids when Carr chose Notre Dame. However, they were not too mad because they had hope to land a similar target in the upcoming class— Dante Moore.

Moore, a five-star prospect in the Class of 2023, is the fifth-ranked player at his position by On3 Sports, Born and raised in Detroit, there was a belief around Ann Arbor that Moore could end up committing to play for the Wolverines and they were reportedly close.

But then he committed to Oregon. Moore announced his decision to play for the Ducks on Friday and made history in the process.

Once again, Michigan fans lost it. Head coach Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines missed out on not only one, but two five-star, in-state quarterbacks.

The Michigan fanbase did not handle it well and other college football fans joined in on the fun, clowning the Wolverines for missing on Moore and Carr.

Michigan whiffed on both in-state stars and now they’re without a quarterback in the Class of 2023 and 2024. Tough scenes.
