Four-star safety Kainoa Winston committed to Michigan's 2025 recruiting class on Friday.

The 247Sports composite lists him as the No. 9 safety and the No 43 overall player in the class.

Winston, who attends Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C., is from Maryland. He took an official visit to Penn State last week following a May 31 trip to Ann Arbor.

"What really stood out about the visit is how authentic the people there are," he told 247Sports about his trip to Michigan. "All the coaching staff, recruiting staff, and players are genuine and aren't into all the hype and media.

"They're about their business and winning games and championships, and that's the main focus all around the program."

With his commitment, Michigan's recruiting class jumped to No. 40 in the 247Sports composite 2025 class rankings. The defending national champion Wolverines have seven four-star commits in the class.
