Baby Gronk has given the Michigan football program’s class of 2031 an unofficial commit.

When he is old enough to go to college, the 11-year-old, whose real name is Madden San Miguel, said on Tuesday that he wants to play for Michigan.

Last week, Baby Gronk declared that he will eventually play football for Ohio State.

Additionally, the social media celebrity has “committed” to schools in the past, such as LSU, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and Missouri.

At the start of the month, Baby Gronk published a graphic with his “top 30” schools listed.

Michigan was one of these options, along with other prestigious schools like Notre Dame, USC, Texas, and Nebraska.

As for Baby Gronk, he had earned a “verbal offer” from Arizona, Madden’s father Jake San Miguel told The Athletic’s Ari Wasserman in June 2023. However, colleges would not make formal offers until the freshly graduated fifth grader entered the seventh grade.

When San Miguel revealed to Wasserman that Baby Gronk was earning “about $100,000 a year” from advertisements and promotions, the company also faced backlash.

Rob Gronkowski, the account’s namesake, expressed disapproval of the promotion to Barstool Sports in June of last year, saying it had gone “too far.”

Within eight hours of being posted, Baby Gronk’s promise to Michigan received over two million views on X, but it’s reasonable to predict the social media sensation won’t be a future Wolverine for very long.

A few of Baby Gronk’s prior promises, such as his admission to LSU in July 2023 after releasing joint films with gymnast Olivia Dunne, were only made for a few hours before being taken down from his social media pages.
