William Poole III, a 2017 four-star cornerback, is committed to Georgia but has told Maize n Brew that he is thinking about taking an official visit to Michigan.

When asked if Poole would have given Michigan more of a chance if they would have pushed harder, he said, "Yes, of course, I am still thinking about going there for an official visit."

Poole has offers to Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, California, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Mississippi State, N.C. State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Old Dominion, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, UCF, UCLA, USC, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin. He was recruited to play for the Wolverines by D.J. Durkin and Mike Zordich, but committed to Georgia on April 16th.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound cornerback said, "Michigan did not recruit me as hard as other schools did, I did not feel too much effort from them. I talked to a coach on their staff every other few months or so."

Poole is the 95th overall player in the Class of 2017, according to 247Sports. From Hapeville Charter High School in Atlanta, Georgia is the 10th best cornerback and the 11th overall player in the state of Georgia.

Regarding if he would flip his commitment to Michigan, the 2017 graduate said, "No."
