The Michigan Wolverines have been ramping up their recruiting in the state of Michigan, and two 2019 players from West Bloomfield are planning on visiting the campus Thursday.
Three-star wide receiver Tre Mosley and four-star linebacker Lance Dixon, both of West Bloomfield High School, plan to visit the University of Michigan tomorrow, Feb. 15, Mosley told Maize n Brew last night.
“It’s 100 percent (happening),” Mosley said. “We talked about it earlier (on Tuesday).”
Mosley said he and Dixon will be joined by their head coach at WBHS Ron Bellamy, who was a wide receiver at U-M from 1999-2002. Having someone like Bellamy be around Mosley and Dixon a bunch, along with knowing the ins and outs of the Michigan football program, can only help the Wolverines’ chances of landing these two recruits.
Mosley said he also plans to visit Michigan during the first week of March. That visit will also be with Dixon and Bellamy, but also with Mosley’s father, 2020 safety Makari Paige and 2020 linebacker Cornell Wheeler. Both Paige and Wheeler are also from WBHS.
These early official visits for 2019 players like Mosley and Dixon are huge for Michigan’s chances at landing a commitment from them. Mosley is the highest-rated wide receiver in the state in 2019, and Dixon was recently named a four-star talent on 247Sports’ composite rankings. If U-M really is trying to hone in on the in-state players, Mosley and Dixon are two players the program does not want to miss out on.
