One of the top wide outs in the Midlands for the 2019 class is Allen (Tex.) sophomore wide receiver Theo Wease. The talented youngster had been committed to the Oklahoma Sooners for a while, but recently decommitted and reopened his recruitment back up.
Since then, he’s gained new interest from others including the Wolverines. Defensive line coach Greg Mattison recently dropped by his school and shortly later, Michigan decided to throw their hat into the mix and offered the Lone Star State standout.
“My coach told me to give Coach Mattison a call and he offered during our conversation,” Wease told The Michigan Insider. “I was pumped up about it just because I know how well of a coaching staff they have down there in Ann Arbor. I know they have something special going down there!”
During that phone conversation with Coach Mattison, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Wease also got to hear what they thought of him, which he was very impressed about.
“(Coach Mattison) thinks I'm a really good player/person and he sees me doing great things at the University of Michigan,” said Wease. “I was speechless.”
Despite the four-star prospect picking up a big offer from the Maize and Blue, he still isn’t ready to gauge his interest level in them quite yet, but does plan on checking out Ann Arbor in the future.
“I don't really know the answer to that question yet (on how interested I’m in Michigan),” said Wease. “I have to visit and talk with coaches a little more.”
Wease added that he has no upcoming visits scheduled and is ready to get going with football season
