Michigan doesn’t extend offers to high school freshman often, but Pickerington, Ohio native Jack Sawyer might be an exception.
Standing at 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds (as a freshman!!!), Sawyer already has offers to play at Ohio State, Michigan State, Cincinnati and Pitt. This kid will more than likely be a top recruit in his class when it’s all said and done if he is already getting offers from big time schools like Michigan and Ohio State, so it’s a good thing U-M pulled the trigger and sent out an offer so early on him.
