Class of 2017 four-star offensive tackle Obinna Eze was invited to visit Michigan for the BBQ at the Big House on August 6, but has told Maize n Brew that he will not attend.

“Michigan is very far from me,” Eze said. “My guardian doesn’t have time to talk me there.”

The 6-foot-7, 280-pound offensive tackle has been playing football for just one year after moving to the United States from Nigeria. He says he does not know a lot about Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, but has heard good things. He added that he knows Michigan has a great alumni network and a great education.

"My favorite part about playing football are teammates," Eze said. "They helped me understand the game and my playbooks. We do fun stuff together."

Eze, who attends Davidson Academy in Nashville, Tennessee, has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Duke, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Memphis, Michigan, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Western Kentucky.

“I am considering Michigan,” Eze said.
