Michigan secured the quarterback for its 2017 class months ago in Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian junior phenom Dylan McCaffrey. Now the Wolverines have turned their attention to the next recruiting cycle of signal callers and recently entered the the mix for one of the best on the West Coast. Bothell (WA.) sophomore quarterback and Washington commit Jacob Sirmon is the latest to receive an offer from the Maize & Blue.
”I found out (about the offer) through my head coach and I was quite honored,” Sirmon told The Michigan Insider. “Michigan is a major school with some big time football and a lot of tradition. There's a lot of positive things to say about them. It is a great school, obviously Coach Harbaugh is a great coach, so I mean there I quite a bit to like.”
The 6-3, 205-pound gun slinger has been committed to the Huskies since December, but with his latest offer from the Wolverines, it is a school he definitely still consider.
“Well I'm more (interested in Michigan) than I was before," Sirmon said laughingliy. "But I mean a lot can happen between now and signing day and I'm just excited to see how it all plays out."
The biggest reason for Sirmon's interest is clearly Harbaugh.
“I mean he's about as big as you get,” said Sirmon. “He obviously knows quarterbacks and how to develop them, and runs a great program. Yes, definitely (appealing with Harbaugh there)."
Sirmon isn’t sure of a visit to Ann Arbor yet as his main focus is working with his high school team and getting ready for the season.
