The Wolverines made a big splash in last year’s recruiting class signing six prospects from the Sunshine State. Jim Harbaugh and his coaching staff now look to carry that momentum into the recruiting trail for classes to come. Several new offers have been sent out as of late during the evaluation period in the Sunshine State with the latest going to Miami (Fla.) Christopher Columbus sophomore safety and Hurricane commit, Joshua Jobe.
“The Michigan coach came to the school and later he offered me when he was talking to me,” Jobe told The Michigan Insider. “He said I have good size and he liked my film. I felt extremely happy and had a big smile when I got the Michigan offer.”http://www.scout.com/player/200910-joshua-jobe
One of those six signees from the Sunshine State hails from Christopher Columbus High in senior defensive end Joshua Uche, who Jobe has formed a strong relationship with and someone he wouldn’t mind continuing playing together at the next level as well.
“Me and Josh Uche are real close,” said Jobe. “He always talks to me about Michigan. I played with Josh for two years. I would love to play with him in college. I want to play as a true freshman.”
The 6-1, 185-pound defensive back grew up a Hurricane fan and is currently committed to the hometown team, but is eager to learn more about the Wolverines, especially knowing of their strong academics.
“Yes I do (have interest),” said Jobe. “I really don't know much about Michigan yet, but one thing I do like about Michigan is their education program. Of course academics big to me because you can't get no where without an education, that's first. I also like their coaching staff.”
With an offer from Michigan now in his pocket, Jobe plans to take a trip up to Ann Arbor.
“Yes, ( I plan on visiting) this summer.”
