Wolverines Offer In-State Tackle

Plymouth (Mich.) class of 2016 offensive tackle Michael Jordan (6-6, 265 pounds) talks about the Michigan offer that he earned at camp.

After a good week of camp at Michigan, Plymouth High offensive tackle Michael Jordan, a 6-foot-6, 265-pound rising junior, received word that the Wolverines were extending him a scholarship offer, the first of his recruitment.

"Coach Hoke told me. He said he wants to let me know that I have the scholarship," he said. "I'm feeling kind of excited know going to be a lot of hard work down the road."

While many top prospects came for just one or two days of camp, Jordan spent every day in Ann Arbor starting on Sunday. This allowed him to work closely with offensive line coach Darrell Funk.

"I learned a lot. I learned how be a better pass protector."

Jordan is just beginning to get on the radar so he says he has not heard from any other schools yet. He played both offensive and defensive line as a sophomore, but it is becoming clear that his future is on offense.

With it being so early, making a commitment is not on his mind yet.

"Michigan has a very good program," he said, "but I have to decide that later. I haven't made any decisions yet."

The last time Michigan signed a player from Plymouth High was defensive end Brennen Beyer in the 2011 class.
