It’s no secret Michigan coach Jim Harbugh loves to utilize tight ends in his offensive scheme. So for obvious reasons, he has made recruiting TE’s a top priority year in and year out for U-M.
Enter Scout.com’s No 7 TE Josh Falo into the mix, who was at U-M’s satellite camp in northern California last week.
“They’re pretty up there for me,” Falo said of U-M. “They are a tight end type of college. That’s pretty big for me.”
And so far Falo says he’s building quite the connection with U-M tight end’s coach Jay Harbaugh, too.
“It’s just relaxing,” Falo said of his vibe with Jay Harbaugh. “That’s what I like about him.”
Falo also met Jim Harbaugh for the first time during his camp experience as well.
“Man, that’s a great dude,” Falo said of Jim Harbaugh. “Off the top, that’s a great dude.”
Falo is looking in taking a possible official visit to U-M later this year.
As far as his deciding factors in his decision, Falo says he’s looking for certain characteristics in his future program.
“No. 1 football obviously,” Falo said. “And then two, education, and three, the environment.”
Falo noted distance will not be a factor in his decision. He also maintains his decision timeline will be somewhere between late December to early January.
That being said, Falo says playing for in state schools like UCLA or USC is still a major draw in his recruitment.
“Yes it is because it’s close to home and it’s in (California) and I love Cali,” Falo said. “Yeah, it’s a big deal to me.”
Currently, Falo says he doesn't have a leader and is looking at between 12 to 15 schools at the moment.
