Michigan standing out early for Peach State OL

Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett 2018 offensive guard Warren Ericson reflects back at his trip to Ann Arbor, interest level in Michigan and more.

Michigan recently put the finishing touches on their 2017 recruiting class and now have shifted all their attention towards next year’s class. One of the prospects the Wolverines have been keeping tabs on is Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett 2018 offensive guard Warren Ericson.

The talented Peach State lineman visited Ann Arbor this past season to watch the Wolverines take down the Hoosiers, which was a trip he won’t forget.

“I loved it,” Ericson told The Michigan Insider. “They really treated me well, and towards the end of the game when It started to snow was really cool to see cause I'm from Georgia and we rarely see snow. I've mostly been in contact with Coach Drevno, and I talked to Coach Wheatley a lot when he was at Michigan. Coach Drevno has been saying that he's really excited about me, and can't wait for me to come back to visit. Overall, I have a good relationship with those coaches.”

What stood out the most to the massive 6-foot-4, 317-pound road grader when he visited Michigan?

“Just watching and seeing the offensive line impose their will on the defense was awesome, because that's how I play the game. I think I could fit in very well. I prefer pro-style offenses, too.”

After making the trek up north and getting to see what the Wolverines have to offer, his interest level has significantly risen in the Maize and Blue. 

“I'm very interested,” said Ericson. “I consider them as one of my top schools and I like the intensity and coaching style for Coach Harbaugh. I think his character and intensity would be fun to play for. I also like the traditions and alumni support of the school. Also, how can you not like the Maze and Blue?”

With having reached over double-digit offers, Ericson has several suitors to consider in his recruitment, but has a few schools sticking out right now. 

“Michigan, LSU, South Carolina and Missouri,” said Ericson. “It's just a general top list”

Ericson hopes to get back and visit Ann Arbor in the future
