Michigan Still On Traylor's List

The low-radar Buckeye State prospect has held an offer from the Wolverines for quite some time, and still has the Maize and Blue on his recruitment list.

Austin Traylor, a 6'4" 211 pound tight end and defensive end for Walnut Ridge in the heart of Columbus, Ohio, has started out his season strong helping his team jump to a quick start.

"The first few weeks have been good," Traylor told GoBlueWolverine. "We are 2-0 now, we beat Cleveland Heights and Columbus East. I think I've performed well. I came up and made some big plays."

Traylor holds a respectable offer list that sits around 20 universities, including the Maize and Blue. A quiet name in the recruiting circles, Traylor still has a wide open list, though it will soon be cut down.

"A lot of schools are still talking to me. I haven't really cut anybody out yet, but I'm starting to look at who I'm going to pick for my officials. Maybe some of the closer schools I'll try to make some unofficial visits too. I'd like to try to narrow it down soon so I can make a decision."

The Wolverines are still amongst the list and may have a solid shot at landing a visit from the youngster from the Buckeye State.

"Michigan is still on my list. I'm considering taking an official there. I talk to Coach Tall. He called me the first day they could make a call on September 1st. He was just letting me know how things were going and congratulated me on my first win when we played Cleveland Heights."

Even though coming up in the heart of such a rivalry, Traylor doesn't have much knowledge of the Wolvlerines.

"I don't really know too much. I've never been up to the campus before. I know they have a good history football wise. The coaches seem cool and they really want to get things on track."

And growing up and living in Columbus, there is zero affinity between Traylor and the Scarlet and Gray.

"I was never a Buckeye fan. I really liked the Miami Hurricanes."
