It all began about a week and a half ago for 2020 tight end Jalin Conyers. He began to see some top football programs notice him and extend scholarships.
On March 27, it was LSU, Baylor and Arizona State. The day after is when Oklahoma State and the Michigan Wolverines offered him. Since then, he has seen scholarships roll in from Tulsa, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oregon, Georgia, Nebraska and Penn State.
Conyers spoke to Maize n Brew not long after the Michigan offer was extended.
“Coach Moore texted me and asked me to call him. Then we had a good conversation and they offered me,” Conyers told Maize n Brew.
Conyers and Moore don’t have a certain amount of days per week they talk, but “whenever he texts me honestly.”
While it is still early in the process, Conyers did admit he is interested enough in Michigan to plan a visit. When the visit happens is still to be determined, but he believes it will happen sometime this spring.
So what kind of stuff would he hope to see and learn about on that trip to Ann Arbor?
“Just the culture of the football program and get to know the coaches better and understand how they wanna play football,” he said.
Conyers, who also plays high school basketball, has other interest in “a lot” of other schools, upward of “17 to 18.” He hasn’t thought about releasing a top list, but he said it could “possibly” happen.
“Just ready to learn about football (at Michigan),” he said.
Conyers does not have a composite score yet — which is what we at Maize n Brew go off — but he is a 4-star on 247Sports. In fact, 247Sports has him as the No. 2 tight end in the country and No. 215 overall.
