Okla. 2018 Safety ‘Shocked’ to Receive Michigan Offer

Owasso (Okla.) 2018 safety Josh Proctor was “shocked” when he received his Michigan offer.

FRISCO, Texas -- Not every offer is treated the same way, however, there are exceptions.

Case and point with Owasso (Okla.) 2018 safety Josh Proctor, who was offered by Michigan and was quick to admit he was thrown off-guard by the news. 

“I was actually shocked,” Proctor said. “Because they weren’t really talking to me. And then the DB coach came to my school and then called me after that, and said I had the offer. I was shocked, surprised, really couldn’t really say anything.”

Adding: “I’ve always looked at them, (they’re a) big program.”

Next up, Proctor says he hopes to visit U-M this coming spring or summer.

“I’m not really sure when I’m going to go (to Michigan),” he said. “I just want to how the atmosphere is and how I feel about it.”

And when he gets there, he’ll also have chance to get know Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh a little better, he says.

“I really don’t know a lot, I haven’t really looked into him,” Proctor said of Harbaugh. “It seems like a place I would be able to play.”

Other than Michigan, Proctor also holds notable offers from Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Nebraska among his double digit offer list. But no matter which school he chooses, relationship with the coaching he says will play a major role in his recruitment.

“Definitely the relationship with the coaches, they tell you one thing and show another,” Proctor said, noting he would visit LSU, Ohio State, Florida and Alabama this spring.

As far as a decision timeline, Proctor hinted his commitment might be coming sooner than later.

“I have looked into it a little bit about committing in the spring, but I’m not sure yet,” he said.
