Largo (Fla.) 2019 defensive tackle Jaquaze Sorrells has been committed to Florida since June. However, the Sunshine State defensive lineman has also gotten to know many other programs and their coaches. One of those coaches he’s built a very strong bond with has been Grey Frey, which dates back from his time in Bloomington. That relationship has since carried over to his new coaching role in Ann Arbor and now so has an offer from Michigan.
“I found out by calling Coach Frey and I was very excited,” Sorrells told The Michigan Insider. “He told me that he was approved to offer me and I was expecting it but didn't know when. I'm very close with Coach Frey because he was my recruiting coach while he was at Indiana. I love Coach Frey. He is a type of coach that gets your attention on every level of recruiting and he keeps everything 100 with you.”
The Wolverines see the 6-foot-3, 260-pound talented youngster as the next great defensive lineman, which definitely appeals to him.
“From talking to the coaches, they look at me as another Rashan Gary and they have high expectations for me,” said Sorrells. “I honestly like it because that's a big role and it really gives me a reason to work hard.”
His next step following landing the offer is getting to check out the Maize and Blue, which he hopes to do this summer, but one factor that won’t impact his view on the Wolverines at all is distance from home.
“No, I honestly like being able to experience new things and I know Coach Frey will make everything feel like home for me.”
Despite the fact that Sorrells is committed to the hometown Gators, his latest offer from the Wolverines has now placed them in firm contention possibly flip him away.
“Michigan sits No. 2 right now with Florida No. 1 and South Florida No. 3,” said Sorrells. It just really means a lot and I'm very blessed to have a offer from Michigan. I thank all the coaches, especially the defensive coaches.”
