During his visit, Vance also had opportunity to sit down with secondary coach Greg Jackson.

“Me and Coach Jackson was talking and watching film,” Vance said. “And we was just talking it over what position I will be playing if I [went to Michigan]. And what type of players they need.”

Vance, who is rated a four-star prospect, has earned notable offers from Michigan, Michigan State and Tennessee in the past week. But now that he has a offer from U-M, he says he is looking seriously at the Wolverines.

“I just want to look at everything,” Vance said. “I am looking to play football a certain type of way for four years. And will it be like home. And will it be what they say it is.”

Currently, Vance says Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Michigan State and Michigan are recruiting him the hardest. He says he has and will continue to visit U-M and MSU, and will going on a recruiting road trip to Florida, Florida State and Miami (Fla.) this summer. He also has a planned visit to Penn State on Feb. 28.

And when he goes on his campus, he says he knows exactly what he’s looking for on his trips.

“Is it a family like atmosphere,” Vance said. “In my first year will I be able to contribute to the team will I be happy where I am at.”

As far as a decision timeline, Vance has it already planned out.
