Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech 2017 OG Jordan Reid reflects on his latest trip to Michigan.

DETROIT – Jordan Reid received his offer from Michigan last month, and didn’t waste much before checking the Wolverines out for an unofficial visit last Wednesday. 

“It was very exciting,” Reid said. “We went with a couple players, Jaylen Kelly-Powell, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Coach (Thomas) Wilcher. Yeah, the weather was bad that day, but we were very determined to go.

"So we went up there sat down with Coach Drevno and went over a little highlight tape with their film and he added a little of my film mixed in with it. We just sat down and talked football, went over some plays and he told me how I would fit in the program.”


Now that he has his first visit under his belt holidng an U-M offer, Reid says he is “definitely” considering the Wolverines.

“Definitely in consideration, Michigan is one of my top schools,” Reid said. “Coach Drevno is a nice guy. We got to bond a lot during the visit and the basketball game. We just talked football. I felt real comfortable, that’s something I look for as far as recruiting process with my coaches, being comfortable. Michigan, considering they are close to home is definitely an option.”

What is Reid looking for in a program exactly?

“With signing day approaching less than a year, I think one thing when I go up there and throughout all schools is just being comfortable,” Reid said. “Just being comfortable with the coaches, coaching staff and the view of the campus.”

Next up, Reid says his plan is to attend Michigan’s spring game on April 1.

“I plan on attending (Michigan’s) spring game for sure,” Reid said, adding with a specific eye on Drevno’s coaching philosophy. “I am definitely going to be seeing how his coaching style and how the players respond to him when he tells them what to do far as plays and technique and stuff. It’s going to be very exciting.”Reid says his plan is to announce his commitment after his senior season.

However, in the meantime he says his top four-schools in no particular order are: Florida, Tennessee, Michigan and Michigan State.
