The Wolverines also sent offensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach Mike Zordich to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to see the 6-foot-3, 320-pound athlete on Monday.
From Central Catholic High School (PA), Thorpe is ranked No. 140 in the 2017 class, according to 247Sports. He is the seventh-best offensive guard and the No. 5 player in the state of Pennsylvania.
Thorpe committed to play for the Nittany Lions on April 16, 2016. He took an official visit to UCLA last weekend and was scheduled to go to Penn State next weekend, but now his time will be spent in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Michigan could lose 2017 four-star offensive tackle commit Kai-Leon Herbert, as he visited Auburn last weekend. He will visit Miami (FL) next weekend and Florida on January 27th.
Herbert told AL.com that he is “definitely considering Auburn much more than I would have” after the weekend visit.
If the Wolverines lose Herbert, Thorpe could fill the void in the Maize and Blue.
