Michigan offers 2019 TE

The Wolverines got an early start on the 2019 class Wednesday after offering TE Logan Lee out of Orion, Illinois.

Michigan was the second program to offer the 6’5”, 225lb tight end after the Iowa Hawkeyes offered over the weekend.

“Everyone knows about Michigan, it's Michigan,” Lee said in an interview with Maize n Brew. “Michigan’s history is incredible and I'm honored to be offered by them.”

Lee has been in touch with Offensive Coordinator Tim Drevno, who offered after speaking with Lee’s high school coach and viewing his 2016 highlight video.

Lee intends on visiting Michigan in the next two to three weeks.

“I would like to see the campus and facilities but would really like to get a chance to speak with the coaches in person.”

In the meantime, Lee has been in touch with Illinois Offensive Line coach Luke Butkus and hopes to set up a visit to Champaign “in the near future.”

#2 DT Has Eyes on Michigan

As discussed in last week’s Recruiting Roundup, top defensive tackle prospect Tyler Friday has stated his intention to return to Ann Arbor in late March for another visit with the Wolverines, but his recruiting battle may come down to two of Michigan’s stiffest Big Ten competitors when a decision is ultimately made. The four-star defensive tackle visited Penn State in late February for the program’s Junior Day event, and has made plans to visit Ohio State and Michigan on back-to-back days at the end of March. Michigan’s pipeline in New Jersey could be an important factor when it comes time for Friday to commit, but Penn State and Ohio State will likely be neck and neck barring any Aubrey Solomon-esque mistakes from the coaching staff.
