Michigan's football program hasn't won a national title in more than 20 years. The Wolverines last won it all in 1997.

When are Jim Harbaugh and Co. going to bring another national championship to Ann Arbor? According to one Wolverines' recruit - pretty, pretty soon.

Charles Thomas, a four-star linebacker in the 2019 class committed to Michigan, recently made a bold claim about his future with the Wolverines. The program's 19 class is expecting multiple national championships during their time in school.

From Land of 10:

“It’s a good class,” said Thomas of the class that now has 10 commits. “We’re not bringing nothing in but dawgs. When we get there, we expect at least two national championships.”


“We’ve got a group chat going on and we talk on a daily basis,” Thomas said. “We’re not teammates yet but it’s like we’re teammates. We talk, help each other out and we speak about the future.”

From Thomas’ perspective, that includes winning championship trophies at Michigan.

“I want to be a part of that,” Thomas said. “At Michigan, it can’t get no better than that.”

It's bold, but that is the kind of mindset you want from your recruits.

Michigan's 2019 class is ranked the No. 8 class in the country by 247Sports' team rankings. The Wolverines have 10 commitments.
