Edwardsburg, Michigan native and 2020 3-star offensive line prospect Josh Priebe received a text from Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis on Wednesday. Gattis asked for Priebe to FaceTime call him.
“The whole staff was watching my film and then they offered me,” Priebe told Maize n Brew. “It’s a great feeling and an honor to receive an offer from them.”
In case you don’t know him just yet, Priebe is a 6-foot-5, 265-pound offensive lineman that has seen multiple big-time offers come in recently. He now holds offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, Duke, Purdue, Indiana, Miami (FL), Nebraska and more.
Priebe plans on visiting Michigan on March 23. He also has visits scheduled for Duke (Feb. 28), Northwestern (March 16) and Purdue (March 30).
His visit to Michigan will not be his first, as he has camped in Ann Arbor before and experienced a game day visit already. Still, the youngster has a few things he wants to take away from each planned visit.
“Build better relationships with all the coaches, see around campus and get a better overall feel for each school,” Priebe said.
The coaches from Michigan he has spoken to the most so far are offensive line coach Ed Warinner and graduate assistant offensive line coach Josh Hendershot. Warinner, who brought in an impressive haul in the 2019 class and helped secure a verbal commitment from 2020 3-star Micah Mazzccua on Monday, has been a huge asset in recruiting so far in his time at Michigan, and building relationships early has played a huge role in that.
Because of all of that, I fully expect Michigan to be in the race for Priebe, as long as it chooses to be in it.
