Fisher Hearing From Spartans

Since July, Jake Fisher thought he knew where his future was headed. With the recent dismissal of Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez, Fisher has stayed true to his pledge, however, he knows he must keep his options open just in case.

Michigan was building a solid recruiting class and one of the cornerstones in the class was offensive tackle Jake Fisher (Traverse City, MI), a 4-star prospect.

At 6-foot-7, 273-pounds, Fisher was a good fit for the spread attack the Wolverines ran under Rodriguez. Now, with questions about who will be the new head coach, Fisher has heard from Michigan State and a possible visit could be coming.

"I'm still committed to Michigan, but I want to have a Plan A and a Plan B, so I feel comfortable. Michigan State was a school that was recruiting me and I have talked with a few coaches there to let them know I'm still looking out towards new schools and looking to set up a visit."

For Fisher the past couple of days have been trying.

"I'm trying to stay loyal to Michigan while they go through the process of hiring a new coach. But I cannot exclude anybody at this time."

Fisher knows there are no guarantees in college football, and his goals are still the same about the school he will sign with on National Signing Day.

"I want to have a successful career after school. I want to attend a great college that will push you to make sure you have success after you finish playing. Michigan, Michigan State and several other schools are all great schools."

While he has not set a date to visit Michigan State or any other program, Jake knows the clock is ticking and the next several days should find him knowing more about the future of the Michigan program and the interest the new coaching staff has in him. will continue to check with Jake in the coming weeks as things play out with his commitment to Michigan.
