Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech has had a long history of sending its stars to play at Michigan.
Current Wolverines, Jourdan Lewis, Delano Hill and Michael Onwenu all strapped up at Cass in their high school careers, and rising junior cornerback Kalon Gervin be next Technician star to make his way to Ann Arbor.
And that seems to be the message from U-M assistant Michael Zordich, who reminds Gervin of the Cass “pipeline” to Michigan.
“He always reminds me of the pipeline, how many Cass players are at Michigan,” Gervin said. “He don’t pressure me, you know what I’m saying. He tells me to keep that in mind.
“I’m cool with all those guys, so it would be fun.”
Gervin’s growing interest in the Wolverines seems to be growing as well.
“It’s just like a family relationship, I can hit them up and they can always hit me up,” Gervin said of U-M. “It’s a good vibe.”
What’s next between Gervin and U-M? Well, he says he would like attend a basketball game to get even more family with Michigan’s campus setting.
“I’m probably going to a basketball game again, like I did last year,” Gervin said. “So I’m probably going to do that for sure.”
Adding: “I would like to see more of the academic side,” Gervin said. “I know lot about football already, every time we went up there that’s what it’s been about. But I would want to see what fits my major and things like that.”
Along with Michigan, Gervin also holds notable offers from Michigan State, Florida, LSU and Oklahoma, and plans to see all of those schools in the coming year for school visits.
As of right now, Gervin says he could make his decision known sometime before or during his senior season.
