The Wolverines hosted several prospects on Saturday and one of the visitors included Madison (Ala.) Bob Jones High School unior safety A.J. Harris. The four-star prospect traveled to Ann Arbor for an unofficial visit and left feeling very impressed.
“It was great,” Harris told The Michigan Insider. “I got a tour of the campus, a tour of the Big House and also got to talk to the academic counselor and got to view practice, so pretty much the whole deal. I talked to every single coach and they all said they love me and want me to become a part of their family.”
One aspect that really stood out for the 6-0, 174-pound athletic defensive back on the trip was the top academic pedigree offered from the Maize and Blue.
“It’s a great school to do engineering,” said Harris. “Any program that you want to do you will have success doing at Michigan.”
After capping off his visit to U-M, the Wolverines now sit as his leader for a few reasons.
“They are my top school,” said Harris. “They are just from the academic standpoint. One of the best out of any school I have visited and by far the best coaching staff that you will get at the college level. Being around those guys just gave them a huge edge actually. (Committing on the visit) did (cross my mind) a lot, but it wasn’t the first time.”
Scout’s No. 268 overall rated prospect looks to finalize his recruitment in the near future and has a few factors he will take into his consideration when the time comes.
“(I plan to commit) soon,” said Harris. “I will look for great academics, somewhere I will be comfortable living the next 4-5 years of my life and just the coaches treating the players like family, not like a business.”
