U-M Offer: Three-Star 2017 Offensive Tackle
Five total offers have come in the hands of Carter Warren, from Peterson (NJ), including three ACC programs, Miami (Fla.), Pitt and Virginia Tech, as well as Big Ten eastern division foe Rutgers.
It was during the school day; my coach told me. It was an awesome experience. I've had a chance to meet the coach [Partridge], and I'm all excited since the offer. I didn't expect it.
He was the person who direct messaged me. I've met him, he's big in this area. Great experience.
Warren has yet to unofficially visit Ann Arbor, but could schedule a visit to campus if time is made available around playoffs.
Warren, a three-star offensive tackle, is the No. 9 ranked player in the state of New Jersey by 247Sports.

Cassidy on Rashan Gary: "I'd Still Call Michigan The Leader"
Michigan's Director of Player Personnel, Chris Partridge built a high school football powerhouse at Paramus (NJ) Catholic, before testing his waters in the college ranks.
Before Partridge left for Ann Arbor, he was equipped with a dominating defensive lineman in Rashan Gary, who is now the No. 2 ranked senior recruit in the country.
Surfacing a pipeline from the New Jersey private school to Michigan by hiring Partridge was a step 1 to the success story, next they needed reassurance that Gary, along with other local recruits, don't commit somewhere else.
But according to Rivals.com Southeast Recruiting Analyst Rob Cassidy, after speaking to Gary a few times, the 6-5, 290 pounder hasn't named favorites, but he believes Michigan is the leader.
I don't talk to him daily, but in the conversation I had with him, he did the thing where he won't name favorites. I think everybody's still chasing Michigan. I think if I was handicapping it as somebody that's only interacted with Rashan probably four or five times, I'd still call Michigan the leader.
Gary and Paramus Catholic recently traveled to IMG Academy, home of No. 9 five-star nationally ranked tight end Issac Nauta, who officially visited Michigan this past October. Nauta would gain the upper hand at the very end, 28-20.
