Michigan Thursday: Wolverines Land Another Big Man

Michigan landed another 4 star offensive lineman yesterday when Plantation (FL) American Heritage OT Kai-Leon Herbert picked the Wolverines at the Opening.  Big Kai-Leon is 6'5 and 185 pounds and visited A2 on June 17th with his teammate TJ Slaton who is 5 star OG. 

Both are photo'd below, KL is the big man on the Right.  I hope they can find a bigger hat for TJ.  :-)

I. Hole/247

Herbert is another guy with a ton of upside but his size and strength currently is just too much for regular high school players, even at a top program like American Heritage.   He is another OL commit that is nowhere near his ceiling and could use a redshirt year when he gets to Ann Arbor.   With the depth issues on the offensive line, he will need to learn quickly.

His offer list is an impressive one:   Auburn, Cal, Colorado, Duke, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Mississippi State, NC State, UNC, Ole Miss, Tennessee USC, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Michigan still has 3 top lineman on their board which includes: TJ above,  OT Isaiah Wilson, and OC Cesar Ruiz.  Michigan will want all 3 guys but will they have room?  Michigan is now at 18 commits and might have 6 spots left.   Can I get a WR commit? :-)
