Multiple visits to Michigan this spring have been catalysts for Michael Jordan’s rising comfort level with Maize & Blue. His most recent trip occurred last weekend during the Wolverines’ annual spring game. It provided yet another opportunity to interact with the coaching staff, but the higher priority on this occasion was getting a look at the progress the Wolverines made on the field.
“I think they picked up the pace in practice and they have increased intensity of their practices even with their game,” Jordan’s father told GoBlueWolverine. “They were moving some players around and experimenting. Their defense is coming along probably a little faster than the offense, but that’s normal in spring. They’re moving forward… moving in the right direction.”
Rumors that the four-star linemen was getting close to a decision began circulating later in the day, but the elder Jordan insists they have no merit.
“I think he is going to have a top five by the school year,” Mr. Jordan stated. “Michael will not make a decision until he takes his official visits his senior year.”
In the meantime the talented youngster will remain open to any new suitors interested in jumping in on his recruitment. He also plans to hit the road for more unofficial visits.
“The last (offers) were Nebraska and Boston College,” Mr. Jordan said. “We’re working on Tennessee. They’ve left messages Michael supposed to talk to our head coach at high school and then get back with them.”
