2018 Offensive Tackle Receives U-M Offer

An SEC school has offered, a Mid-American powerhouse has offered, Cincinnati and the No. 22 ranked team in the country has offered, and now Michigan is the next in line to offer Fairfield (Ohio) sophomore offensive tackle Jack Carman.

Carman isn't yet ranked by the major recruiting websites, but describes the 6-6, 275 pounder as one of the top lineman in the Midwest.

U-M Offers 2017 Alabama Wide Receiver

The level of competition for Nico Collins is impressive, highlighted by a handful of SEC standouts, including Georgia, Auburn and LSU. The No. 1 ranked junior wide receiver in the state of Alabama has 12 total offers, with only two not residing in a Power 5 conference.

Logan Rudolph: "Very Blessed To Have That Offer"

Want to know the backstory behind Logan Rudolph receiving an offer to Michigan? Here it is as told by Rudolph himself:

I saw on Twitter that I had a follow from Jay Harbaugh. I was like, 'Wow, that's pretty awesome. He's got like 25,000 followers.' I obviously followed him back and then about five minutes later he DM'd me. He said that he watched my tape and that he really liked it. He said I did a lot of things the way they would have players do it. He said I play the game with 'cruelty' - that was the word he used. They like my physicality. I gave him my coach's name and number and then we messaged back and forth a little bit that night and that was about it.

The next day I didn't know what the outcome would be. I think it was about noon Coach Jim Harbaugh and Jay called my coach and they talked for a while. My coach texted me at about 12:30 and told me to check my DM's. I looked in there and Coach Jay Harbaugh had given me his number and told me to call him. I was in class actually so I asked to go to the bathroom and I went in the bathroom and called him. I talked to him for a little bit and he asked how my week had been on a scale of 1-10 and I told him about a six or a seven. Then he asked how I'd feel if the University of Michigan offered me a scholarship today and I said that my week would go up to a 100. So then he said that's what was happening. I'm very thankful and feel very blessed to have that offer.

Rudolph is the first Rock Hill, South Carolina recruit to receive an offer from Michigan since Jadeveon Clowney, now with the Houston Texans after going No. 1 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. Clowney would remain in his home state and play for the Gamecocks, but will Rudolph break the trend?

The Wolverines are now the seventh program to extend an offer to the junior tight end, along with Duke, East Carolina, Kentucky and Oklahoma State, where his older brother, Mason, is the starting quarterback. The idea of teaming up with his brother sounds "cool" to Logan, but isn't entirely sold on the scenario. He told that he'd like to do his own thing and find a place that best suits his needs.

Rudolph is the No. 9 ranked 2017 tight end in the state of South Carolina and No. 25 ranked overall in the country by 247Sports.
