Michigan Wolverines recruit  Mekhi Becton, a 2017 three-star offensive tackle, has told Maize n Brew that he will 'possibly' visit Michigan this summer but does not have a specific date.

"I don't have any leaders at the moment," said Becton, who many presume the offensive tackle is leaning towards Virginia or Virginia Tech. "No one is standing out at this point."

Becton is looking for a college that will give him a good education, playing time and has a diverse campus. The 6-foot-7, 345-pound junior believes that he could get a lot of playing time from the start at Michigan.

"Because of their depth chart, I can have a chance to compete for a spot," Becton said. "I think my length and my punch are my strengths. I need to work on having more flexibility and getting my kick faster for speed pass rushers."

When asked about the possibility of playing for Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, Becton said, "It would be a very great opportunity."

Becton told Maize n Brew that he will not commit to a college before National Signing Day.

Believe it or not, the three-star recruit did not allow any sacks during his junior season for Highland Springs.
