Michigan was able to go into the Lone Star State last year and land on their biggest prospects (literally) in Aledo’s massive offensive tackle Chuck Filiaga. The Wolverines have looked to carry that momentum and offered many others around the state including Manvel (Tex.) 2018 cornerback Trent Gordon. The talented Texas defensive back prospect reflects on landing his Wolverine offer.
“I found out when Coach (Brian) Smith and (Jay) Harbaugh came to the school and later got the news” Gordon told The Michigan Insider. “I don't remember exactly (the date I got offered), but I think it was in late January or early February, but I'm now really interested in the school. I was really shocked because I haven't heard much from the school, but they told me that I was high on their list.”
With his offer list ranging from coast to coast, the 5-foot-11, 172-pound Gordon now plans on checking out some of his suitors this spring break by visiting several programs all around the country. One of those stops will be to see the Maize and Blue.
“I'm visiting (Michigan) this Tuesday and I want to learn really how do they plan to fit me into their defense and how good their school is living up to what they people say it's like,” said Gordon. I've heard that they have a great academic and football program and that they have a lot of school pride. Personally I knew about the school, but I don't know too much about it, so I was eager to learn about it even more. I've got Ohio State, Tennessee, Penn State, and LSU that I’m also going too.”
Moving forward, will proximity to home play any role in his decision making process?
“Distance isn't a factor,” said Gordon.
As of right now, Gordon says he has no top list in his recruitment
