Breaking News: Michigan’s Mega Weekend Surprise! Top Defensive Lineman Transfer Target Set to Storm Wolverines’ Turf – Don’t Miss the Exclusive Details!



“Michigan Lands Huge Visit from 247Sports Transfer Portal Sensation! Meet Joey Slackman, the Defensive Tackle Dynamo Set to Shake Up Wolverines’ Weekend – Exclusive Insider Details!”

In an exciting development, one of the most coveted players in the 247Sports transfer portal is gearing up for a visit to Michigan. Defensive tackle Joey Slackman, a standout graduate transfer from Penn, has officially confirmed his visit to Ann Arbor this weekend.

“I am visiting this coming weekend,” Slackman revealed to The Michigan Insider. “They’re one of the best, and I’m looking into them closely. Excited to speak with the staff further.”

Standing at an impressive 6-foot-4 and weighing 300 pounds, Slackman boasts over 20 scholarship offers since entering the transfer portal last month. The Wolverines extended a scholarship to him in late November, solidifying their interest in the former Ivy League standout.

Rated as a four-star prospect in the 247Sports Transfer Portal Ranking, Slackman holds the impressive positions of No. 22 overall prospect and No. 3 defensive lineman.

Hailing from Commack, New York, Slackman’s journey took a unique turn. Initially enrolling at Penn in 2019 for wrestling, he returned to football after an injury in his freshman year, especially after Ivy League sports cancellation in 2020-21. His performance over the 2022 and 2023 seasons includes an impressive record of 99 tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss, and 8.5 sacks in 19 games.

The transfer portal dynamics add an element of uncertainty, with players having the option to withdraw if they choose. However, the coming weeks are anticipated to witness a flurry of transfers across the FBS. This cycle, with transfer portal windows from Dec. 5 to January 18, marks a new era, limiting players’ entry periods.

As the NCAA implements changes, schools are no longer restricted to signing just 25 initial counters per cycle, allowing programs to reshape rosters up to the 85-scholarship limit. The evolving transfer landscape presents challenges and opportunities, as explored in-depth in a comprehensive story from 247Sports, capturing insights from assistant coaches across every FBS conference. Buckle up for the “mass chaos” unfolding in this year’s transfer portal cycle!
