One of the top offensive linemen in the South for the 2019 class is Trussville (Ala.) Hewitt-Trussville offensive tackle Pierce Quick. The talented sophomore lineman shined this past season and saw the offers quickly pour in.
However, he landed a scholarship from in-state power, the Alabama Crimson Tide back in February and a few weeks later, he pulled the trigger and committed. Despite his commitment, schools have continued to pursue him including the Wolverines, who earlier this week became his latest offer.
“The offensive coordinator (Tim Drevno) came to my school yesterday and he told my coach (the news) and I honestly was pretty excited,” Quick told The Michigan Insider. “It honestly hit me by major surprise. It's a blessing to get it and definitely a huge offer.”
The physical 6-foot-5, 280-pounder’s familiarity isn’t too high with the Wolverines quite yet, but is aware of their headman, Jm Harbaugh and the impact he’s made on the program so far like taking the team to Rome earlier this spring.
“I don’t know much about (Michigan), but I like Coach Harbaugh,” said Quick. “He’s definitely a players coach. I like all the trips and stuff they're taking. That's really cool. That'd definitely be something I'd like to do. He's obviously a good coach and he just seems like a cool guy.”
With now having an offer from the Maize and Blue, Quick definitely plans on getting up to Ann Arbor sometime in the future.
“Michigan is an upcoming school for sure and I'll most likely visit Ann Arbor,” said Quick. “If not this summer, then for an official for sure.”
