Michigan has cast a wide offer-net over the country the past few weeks, but it has been especially active in California. That trend continued Thursday when linebackers coach Chris Partridge extended another one out to Claremont (Calif.) sophomore outside linebacker Solomon Tuliaupupu
“Coach Partridge and I spoke on the phone after an early workout and told me about the offer,” Tuliaupupu told The Michigan Insider. “It was a great way to start the day. I felt great all day throughout school and my afternoon work out. I'm very interested in Michigan. When I was talking to the coaches they seemed very interested in my game.”
Another major topic of conversation was Wolverines headman Jim Harbaugh.
“The coaches made me feel like family and of course told me stories about Coach Harbaugh and how fun he is to be around,” said Tuliaupupu. “They just told me stories about the Dab video and how out going he is and close to his players. He treats his team very good. It seems like he's a great guy with great energy. I really want to meet him.”
Michigan joined BYU and Washington on Tuliaupupu's offer list and now he hopes to strengthen his connection with the Maize & Blue by meeting them face to face.
“We are trying to set up (a visit) for this summer,” said Tuliaupupu. “I feel that (Michigan and I) will definitely have a great relationship throughout the rest of my high school career.”
As exciting as his newest offer is, Tuliaupupu isn't ready to annoint Michigan (or any other school for that matter) his leader.
“No, not yet do I have a top list,” he said. “I feel it's too early.”
