Michigan football is dipping back into Tennessee for another recruit.

Brentwood Ravenwood cornerback Myles Pollard committed to the Wolverines on Wednesday afternoon during a ceremony broadcasted live on Instagram, joining fellow Tennessean Kody Jones in U-M's 2022 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound cornerback is a three-star prospect, ranked No. 431 overall and the No. 39 cornerback, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Pollard's other finalists were Auburn and Oklahoma. He also reported offers from Alabama, Florida, Oregon and Washington, among others.

Pollard officially visited Ann Arbor on June 11 after emerging as a top target for Michigan's reconfigured defensive staff earlier this offseason. He was offered on Jan. 28 and was recruited by both Maurice Linguist (who left to become the head coach at Buffalo after joining Michigan's staff this winter) and current defensive backs coach Steve Clinkscale.

"Long levered cornerback with legit height and wingspan," wrote 247Sports analyst Clint Brewster. "Uses his length to his advantage and plays with an aggressive demeanor and physical style. Able to play bump and run coverage to the field. Twitchy feet and tight moving change of direction."

Pollard plays at Ravenwood High School, the same school that freshman linebacker Junior Colson attended.

He is the third recruit to commit to Michigan in the past three days, joining tight end Colston Loveland and edge-rusher Mario Eugenio. The Wolverines now have 15 commitments in the 2022 class.
