Michigan Latest to Offer 2017 Ga. LB

Michigan added its name to the who’s who of college football in hot pursuit of 2017 Vidalia (GA.) outside linebacker Nate McBride.

With offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia and many others, Vidalia (GA.) outside linebacker Nate McBride is already one of the most coveted players for the 2017 class. His offer list got a little bit bigger when he received news yesterday that Michigan had extended an offer. 

“(Defensive Coordinator) Coach (D.J.) Durkin talked to my dad and said that he talked to Coach (Jim) Harbaugh and he wanted to offer me,” McBride told Scout. “I thought it was pretty cool and I was very excited. I am very blessed.  It’s a great school! It is so far away though. I just will have to see how everything falls.”

“They have a lot of history behind the Michigan name and Coach Harbaugh has NFL experience,” said McBride. “I am not sure yet if I’ll visit.”

The Wolverines haven’t had much success recruiting the Peach State, but with Jim Harbaugh at the helm they’re looking to change that. The 6-2, 200-pound four star linebacker is one of the players they’re looking to make up ground with.

For his part McBride says he is wide open. His recruitment is in full swing and he’s constantly hearing from schools day in and day out.

“I don’t really have a top list,” said McBride. “I’m just trying to take it slow and make sure my decision is right. I’m looking for a great football program as well as academic program with a great staff and a team that knows how to win.”
