DECEMBER 2022 THE WOLVERINE 49   PREP PROFILES It was easy day at the office for Chan- ning Goodwin. The three-star 2024 wide receiver logged 3 receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown and added an interception on defense in just one half of play to help lead Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day to a 56-7 blowout win over Charlotte Coun- try Day in the first round of the North Carolina independent school state play- offs Nov. 4. "We were able to win by a pretty big margin," Goodwin said. "We prepared hard all week. "I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get the win — offense or defense, it doesn't matter. I'm just glad we picked up the win." Goodwin is now fully focused on his team's playoff run (they also won 51-14 against Christ School on Nov. 11 to im- prove to 11-1), but he was able to make a big recruiting visit before the start of the postseason. Along with teammates Jadyn Davis, a four-star 2024 quarterback, and Jordan Shipp, a three-star 2024 wide re- ceiver, Goodwin took a trip to Ann Ar- bor to see Michigan in its rivalry game against Michigan State Oct. 15. "It was really fun," Goodwin said. "The whole crew was there. Shipp and Jadyn were there with me this time, so it was a great time. They got the win over Michi- gan State. The team dominated, and The Big House was crazy." The visit marked Goodwin's second time in Michigan Stadium in October. He also visited for Michigan's game against Penn State with his father, former Michi- gan offensive lineman and All-American Jonathan Goodwin. On both occasions, Channing spent quality time with the U-M coaching staff, especially his lead recruiter and wide re- ceivers coach Ron Bellamy. "It was a great time catching up with them," Goodwin said. "We got to look at some of their script before the game. The whole experience was great. Coach Bel- lamy was great. We've built a really good relationship. He's a great coach." Michigan is considered the early favor- ite for Goodwin. U-M is also in a strong spot for Davis and Shipp. And it's not far-fetched to think that the Wolverines could land all three of the talented Providence Day prospects in the next cycle. "We're definitely talking about it," Goodwin said. "There is a lot of outside talk about it, so it's kind of hard not to talk about it [laughs]. It's definitely something we're looking at, but we all know we have to make the best decisions for ourselves first and think about that later." Goodwin also holds offers from Ken- tucky, Louisville, Maryland, Missouri, NC State, Pitt, South Carolina and others. At 6-foot-1, 160 pounds, Goodwin also is ranked as the No. 70 wide receiver in the country and the No. 10 prospect in North Carolina, per the On3 Consensus, an equally weighted industry average. — EJ Holland Michigan hosted several top under- classman targets for its rivalry game against Michigan State last month, in- cluding Jordan Shipp. The three-star 2024 Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day wide receiver made his way to Ann Arbor with teammates Jadyn Davis, a four-star and the No. 6 quar- terback in the class of 2024, and Chan- ning Goodwin, a three-star 2024 wide receiver. "It was really fun," Shipp said. "I en- joyed every part of it. I love the coaching staff up there. The players brought me in like a brother. It was a really great experi- ence. The game environment was crazy. "Being able to play in front of that many people would be a blessing. It was a great visit with my brothers [Davis and Goodwin]." Michigan dominated MSU thanks to a strong run game. While some believe U- M's style of offense may deter high-level pass catchers, Shipp made it clear that the system is in no way a negative for the Wolverines. "The run game is only going to open up the pass," Shipp said. "I don't look at it negatively. I'm not a selfish player. If the run game is working, just keep it going." Michigan wide receivers coach Ron Bellamy is leading the way in the recruit- ment of Shipp and made sure to spend extended time with him on the visit. "I love Coach B," Shipp said. "I proba- bly talk to him two or three times a week. He's accepted me. He's become a big- time role model for me. He's someone that I look up to. "He wants me to come, but he doesn't pitch me when I'm there. He just lets me know that he's there and that it's a family at Michigan." Along with Michigan, Shipp holds of- fers from Duke, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Maryland, Missouri, NC State, North Carolina and others. But it's safe to say Michigan is surging coming out of his most recent visit. "They are higher on the list for sure," Shipp said. "I love the school and the coaches. I just love everything about it." Shipp isn't the only prospect Michi- gan can land out of Providence Day next cycle. The Wolverines are also in play for Davis and Goodwin. And yes, all three have talked about teaming up at the next level. "Channing and I are probably the clos- est out of everybody, so we talk about it the most," Shipp said. "Now, Jadyn is here, so you add him in. It would be great to play with everyone again." At 6-foot-2, 183 pounds, Shipp also is ranked as the No. 53 wide receiver na- tionally and the No. 8 player in the state, per the On3 Consensus. — EJ Holland North Carolina Legacy Is A Priority Target At Receiver Great Visit Moves U-M Higher Up Charlotte Receiver's List ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ ✪ Providence Day School Charlotte, N.C.
