His Recruiting Story:
Nolan Ulizio was the third player to commit to Michigan after the hire of U-M coach Jim Harbaugh. A onetime Connecticut commit, Ulizio chose the Wolverines during his official visit on Jan. 25. A late bloomer, Ulizio’s recruitment heated up in January, with late offers from Kentucky, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati among others.
“One of the more improved prospects from junior to senior year. Ulizio is a strong drive blocker with above average feet and the strength to compete early. Must work on overall flexibility, but showed great improvement in past year. Plays tackle in high school but projects as a guard with the ability to pull or a power tackle. Must get lower to get more power out of his hips.” -- Ohio recruiting analyst Dave Berk
VIDEO CAPSULE REPORT:
“Just being at Michigan felt right. It felt like the right atmosphere as the campus and facilities are all nice. I know I can get a good degree there and as for the football, I feel that Michigan can compete right away for a national championship and I want to be part of that.” – Ulizio
Ulizio will most likely redshirt as he looks to add muscle to his 6-fooot-6, 280-pound frame. He projects as a tackle or guard at the next level. While he is an under-the-radar prospect in this class, Harbaugh has been known for developing lesser known talent. And Ulizio fits that bill.
