'20 OL Hinton “loves” return trip to U-M

Norcross (Ga.) Greater Atlanta Christian 2020 offensive tackle Myles Hinton discusses his recent visit to Ann Arbor and what surprised him about the trip as well


One of the top prospects in the 2020 class is Norcross (Ga.) Greater Atlanta Christian offensive tackle Myles Hinton. The talented youngster has the size and strength, which has made him a very coveted prospect. He has visited numerous programs so far in the beginning stages of his recruitment and returned to Michigan at the end of May with his family including his brother in 2019 highly-touted defensive tackle Christopher Hinton and just like his first time seeing Ann Arbor a year ago, it didn’t disappoint at all.

“I loved it,” Hinton told The Michigan Insider. “It was amazing. We toured the school and went to the Ross business school and [saw the] engineering program.”

The mammoth 6-foot-6, 323-pound Hinton has already racked up several early offers including one from the Wolverines. While he thought highly of Michigan before the second visit, the trip only raised his interest in the Maize and Blue even more.

“I was already very interested, but the recent visit just made me love it more,” said Hinton. “I liked the community feel to Ann Arbor. I also liked how everyone there wanted you to be your best in the class on the field and after football.”

With it being his second time up on campus, he got to experience and see some new things, but what really caught his attention was the exceptional vibe he got in Ann Arbor.

“The community feel,” said Hinton. “Nowhere else has been like that.”

That wasn’t the only aspect that drew high praise as his interaction with the Wolverine coaching staff stood out, especially with the headman, Jim Harbaugh. 

“We got to talk to Coach Harbaugh and our position coaches,” said Hinton. “It was all good. I like Coach Harbaugh’s personality and he seems like a cool coach. I liked the offensive line meeting as well. We looked at practice film and he taught me some things they like to do.

“It was really cool meeting Coach Harbaugh. I met him once before I was a recruit, but it was still really cool.”

Hinton added that he hopes to visit Michigan again in the future
