Holtz Hoping for UM Offer

Holt (MI) OL Austin Holtz was one of the visitors in Ann Arbor on Saturday for the spring game. Even though he has ties to other in-state schools, the big lineman is still mad for Michigan.

Just to be at the spring game wearing the recruit tag was huge for Holt OT Austin Holtz. The 6’5, 260-lber came to Ann Arbor for the first time as a recruit, but apparently, that’s where his heart had been for some time.

” I have been a lifelong fan,” Holtz said of the Wolverines. “Just being able to go there as a recruit and talking to the coaches really was a treat. They said they want to see me at camp, so I’ll go down there for a couple days in June and then we’ll go from there.”

Holtz played last season at both right and left tackle earning 2nd team Dream Team honors from the Lansing State Journal. He does also have the ability to move inside and play guard and many schools will look at him on the interior as well.

Holtz currently holds an offer from Eastern Michigan and is also receiving interest from Grand Valley State. The Lakers are of interest to him because his mentor and older brother Brian plays there.

”It would be nice to play with my brother again since I look up to him so much but I am definitely not settling with [GVSU]," said Holtz. "My goal is to play D1, it always has and always will be.”

There is a lot left to be decided for Holtz and this summer will be a big part in determining his future and whether or not he’ll gain an offer from his favorite team.

"That would be really awesome if they did offer,” he said, “but I just really don’t know right now.”
