Jalil Irvin is a 6-3, 245-pound offensive guard out of Stephenson HS (Stone Mountain, GA). Irvin announced via Twitter Thursday that he had been offered by Michigan. Irvin is originally from Detroit, so this offer hit home for him, it seemed.
Irvin is in the class of 2018, so not much info is out there on him beyond his Hudl film. Nevertheless, the film was enough for him to receive a call from Michigan running backs coach, and currently the nation's second-overall recruiter, Tyrone Wheatley.
"(The offer) means a lot to me since I'm from Detroit," he said. "The offer means the world to me. I was just shocked, to be honest."
Irvin is already planning a visit, and was open about his overwhelming interest in the wolverines' program.
"Hopefully I can take a visit (in June)," he said. "(Michigan) is my front runner."
Irvin said his conversation with Wheatley went really well. He is early in the process, but isn't against a commitment soon.
"I'm thinking about it as we speak," he said about his commitment. "Just (thinking about) Michigan, to be honest. I have some other big schools looking at me too."
No need to speculate if Irvin may drop his commitment during his visit, he let us know the possibility of that happening.
"It's very possible for me to commit on the visit," he said. "Just have to talk it over with my mom."
Irvin is easily one to keep our eye on. Expect a visit date to come sometime this weekend, and maybe more news.
