Texas Quarterback Taylor Potts Talks Michigan

Two Texas prep quarterbacks are the recent hot topic among Michigan recruiting fans. Flower Mound slinger Nick Stephens is visiting Ann Arbor this weekend, The Wolverines also offered Taylor Potts of Abilene High School during a recent swing through the state by U-M QB coach Scot Loeffler. Potts is also pondering whether he'll take an official visit North.

Michigan quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler has been busy recently in the state of Texas. He stopped by the home of Flower Mound QB Nick Stephens on Tuesday, and had the four-star slinger traveling to Ann Arbor on Thursday for an official visit.

The next stop was the home of Abilene High School's Taylor Potts, who wasn't as quick to jump on a plane North. "Yes, Coach Loeffler was here on Wednesday and he offered me a scholarship to Michigan," Potts told GoBlueWolverine.com on Friday. "My family and I are going to sit down over the weekend and think and pray about whether or not I'll visit. If I do it will be next weekend."

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Potts verbally committed to Texas Tech in March, and said that hasn't changed. "I'm still committed to Texas Tech, absolutely," he said. "But when Michigan calls you have to listen. It's a great school with a great history of putting quarterbacks in the NFL."

The strong-armed Potts, Scout.coms #43 Southwest prospect, said the Michigan coach contacted him approximately a week prior to the visit. "It was out of the blue," he said. "I had never heard from them before and wasn't really looking that way. I've been a Texas fan all my life."
