One of Michigan’s biggest targets in the 2020 class announced his future commitment date earlier this week, as 4-star safety Jordan Morant tweeted his intentions to commit during the Adidas All-American Game on Jan. 4, 2020.
Obviously, this means Morant will not be an early enrollee wherever he decides to play his college football, but he gave a very mature reasoning for deciding to do this.
“Honestly I chose to do that because it gave me more time on my decision and look at some options and (to) not rush into things,” Morant told Maize n Brew.
I can’t blame the guy for wanting to make sure he is going to the right college. It is a tough time in everyone’s lives, and having the stress of figuring out where to play college football must be even greater than just “where am I gonna study for four years?”
At the moment, Michigan leads the 247Sports crystal ball with 44 percent. Penn State isn’t far behind with 33 percent. The other 22 percent is on “undecided.” The good news out of this is four of the last six predictions have been made in favor of Michigan, with the other two being the “undecided” ones.
As the No. 4 player out of the state of New Jersey, No. 7 safety and No. 143 overall player in his class, Morant is a very important prospect to the Wolverines. He is a great player at a position of need and from a state that is the former home to the two Wolverine assistant coaches leading the charge in this recruitment — new linebackers coach Anthony Campanile and long-time Michigan recruiting MVP Chris Partridge.
We will see if these two coaches are able to secure one of Michigan’s top targets in the 2020 class on Jan. 4, 2020.
