2019 4-star tight end Isaiah Foskey has been pursued by Jim Harbaugh for a long time. He’s seen as the only remaining player at his position the staff is still pushing hard for after landing 3-star Erick All.
Joining Michigan in Foskey’s top five is California, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Washington. His list is interesting, as it only contains one school from Foskey’s home state of California. This would seem to indicate distance is not a factor for the De La Salle standout.
Michigan was the last place Foskey visited, traveling across the country to attend the BBQ at the Big House event July 28. He also visited Notre Dame the day before.
His recruitment has been pretty quiet so far, as he holds no crystal ball picks yet. I’d say this list puts the Wolverines in a good position to snag the 4-star.
Ohio State already has a tight end committed for their 2019 class and secured the top tight end last year, and Cal already has two tight ends in their class. Foskey’s 247Sports profile says he hasn’t visited the Huskies yet, so they could emerge if they get a visit.
Right now, I’d say the biggest competition is Notre Dame, who has a similarly excellent history of developing tight ends. They do have two studs already committed for the 2020 class, though.
Regardless, Foskey would be an excellent addition to the class and would help build depth if Zach Gentry leaves early for the NFL next year.
Michigan’s recently landed a De La Salle tight end, but that didn’t end so well. Devin Asiasi transferred closer to home after his true freshman season, ending up at UCLA.
Michigan’s class stands at 13th in the country and second in the Big Ten, one spot behind Ohio State.
