Truth or Fiction: Is there already a 2026 five-star candidate?


Rivals nationwide recruiting analyst Nick Harris, together with Josh Henschke of, Cole Patterson of and nationwide rankings director Adam Friedman take a look at three subjects and decide whether or not they assume every is FACT or FICTION.

Michigan will signal two offensive linemen from the state of Texas in 2024.

Blake Frazier

Blake Frazier (

Harris’ take: FACT. Michigan offensive line coach Sherrone Moore keyed in on Michigan legacy Blake Frazier, Max Anderson and Michael Uini early in every of their recruitments, and that confidence of their early prowess seems like it can repay for at the very least Frazier and Anderson. Each have taken visits to Ann Arbor which have resulted within the Wolverines choosing up FutureCast Predictions for every, whereas Uini’s go to has shot them into the highest grouping for the Central Texas bruiser. I’ve picks in for Frazier and Anderson, and it would not shock me in the event that they someway nab Uini away from the state of Texas as effectively earlier than it is all mentioned and completed.

Henschke’s take: FACT. Exterior of the truth that Blake Frazier is a legacy recruit for Michigan, each Max Anderson and Frazier’s go to to Ann Arbor couldn’t have gone higher, which is why we predict the Wolverines are in line to safe the commitments of each gamers in some unspecified time in the future this cycle. The 2 have constructed a powerful bond with offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Sherrone Moore, in addition to offensive line commits Luke Hamilton and Ben Roebuck change into quick buddies with the 2. This mixture is why we predict the Wolverines will take two of the perfect the state of Texas has to supply this cycle.



There will probably be a five-star prospect within the preliminary 2026 Rivals100 this fall.

Jahkeem Stewart

Jahkeem Stewart

Harris’ take: FACT. The 2026 class is shaping as much as be actually robust with already a handful of prospects that may very well be thought of for five-star standing. Carrollton (Ga.) quarterback Julian Lewis could be the best candidate for No. 1 within the class after main his crew to a state championship look as a freshman together with having the requisite traits to be an elite quarterback. New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine defensive lineman Jahkeem Stewart might not have the varsity expertise but, however his performances in nationwide camps alongside together with his 6-foot-6, 280-pound body has him very excessive on recruiting boards already. Every might make a case to be a five-star upon the discharge of the preliminary rankings.

Friedman’s take: FICTION. There normally are only a few if any five-stars within the preliminary rankings for any class, however the 2026 class is already shaping as much as be fairly particular on the high. Gamers like Julian Lewis, Jahkeem Stewart, and Kendre’ Harrison have already got elite traits that might put them within the five-star dialogue. For now my reply is fiction however that might simply change relying on what we see out of gamers within the 2026 class all through the remainder of the offseason.


Bryant Wesco is the highest spring riser within the state of Texas.

Bryant Wesco

Bryant Wesco

Harris’ take: FACT. Midlothian (Texas) four-star vast receiver Bryant Wesco confirmed as much as the Below Armour camp in Dallas and completely dominated everyone that stepped in entrance of him, and it got here amid an offseason the place he was already displaying off the chart athleticism in observe and discipline occasions. There are such a lot of good candidates right here, however Wesco’s efficiency mixed together with his already developed bodily traits make him a surefire candidate to see a giant rise within the subsequent rankings launch.

Patterson’s take: FICTION. Wesco is a good choose for this, however I’ll go together with Terry Bussey. Bussey is a well known commodity within the state of Texas, however his recruitment has seemingly reached one other gear this offseason. Texas, Florida, Arkansas, Tennessee and Auburn are among the many offseason provides, and Bussey clocked in a 4.42 40-yard sprint on the UA Dallas Camp earlier this spring. His versatility to play both facet of the ball makes him an intriguing prospect for a number of packages and a spotlight reel on Friday nights.
