Jalil Irvin, a 2018 offensive lineman from Stone Mountain, Georgia, has told Maize n Brew that the Michigan Wolverines are in the lead and he plans to visit the program in early July.

"They [Michigan] are the leader right now," Irvin said. "I plan on visiting in early July."

Irvin has offers from Illinois, Michigan, and Tulane, along with two smaller colleges. Irvin has "no idea" if he will commit before National Signing Day. The offensive lineman believes he can get about 10 offers from big-time colleges.

The 2018 graduate would be honored to play for Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, saying, "It would be great. I love what he is doing up there changing the entire culture and making football fun again and hardnosed at the same time. It's good up there.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound sophomore at Stephenson High School believes Michigan gave him an offer so early because he works had and had a good tape.

"I am going to work hard and give my best effort every day, looking at film, studying plays and working on technique," said Irvin regarding on how he can help Michigan win a national title. "That is how I think I can help, but we will see what the coaches think."
