In Jim Harbaugh’s pro-style offense, a vital part to their success is a good, hard-nosed fullback. Last season, the Wolverines featured two at the position in Sione Houma and Joe Kerridge and saw plenty of highlights with each giving punishing blocks and running the ball. Michigan is now looking to restock at the position and recently offered Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County 2017 fullback and LSU commit, Tory Carter.
The physical and tough-minded Carter talks about his latest offer from the Wolverines and is looking on checking out Ann Arbor in the near future.
“I was offered over the phone,” Carter told The Michigan Insider. “As with every offer I receive, I was humbled and excited. I'm truly blessed! I talked to the offensive coordinator Coach (Tim) Drevno. He spoke to me about what I would play and the opportunities I would have to play early. I plan on visiting this weekend. They are recruiting me for fullback. I love the opportunity of playing early.”
With the 6-foot-1, 265-pounder planning to visit Michigan this weekend, he will look to try and familiarize himself much better with everything the Maize and Blue has to offer.
“I'm interested and looking forward to learning more on this trip,” said Carter. “I'm leaving Friday at 6 a.m. I'm not familiar with the program and area. I'm looking to learn more about the offense and coaching staff.”
While Carter hopes to find out more about several aspects of the Wolverine program, he also can’t wait to meet the headman, Jim Harbaugh as well.
“I think he is a great coach with a great program and I am looking forward to learning more about him and his program this weekend,” said Carter.
