One of Michigan’s top targets in the 2021 class was on campus this weekend and had some positive takeaways from his time in Ann Arbor.
Brock Bowers, a four-star tight end and a player on the cusp of the top 100 in the 2021 class, was on campus this weekend for an unofficial visit. Maize n Brew caught up with Bowers shortly after he got back in his home state of California.
“It went good,” said the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder from Napa, California. “We got to do mostly everything. Saw all the facilities, the campus and met with the coaches.”
The coaches he spent time with were head coach Jim Harbaugh, offensive coordinator Josh Gattis and tight ends coach Sherrone Moore.
“We talked a decent amount about football but we were also just talking and getting to know each other,” Bowers said. “They were good talks with them. I really like them.”
As far as where Michigan sits in his recruitment after the visit, Bowers isn’t entirely sure. He admits he is going to “let everything sink in for right now” and reevaluate everything else later on. A return visit to Ann Arbor isn’t out of the picture, but again, those things will be reevaluated in the future.
Next up in his recruitment, Bowers hopes to visit some schools on the West Coast, but no trips are set in stone just yet.
Overall, it sounds like Bowers had a good first experience at Michigan. It is hard to get a real grasp of where Michigan sits on his list. If the Wolverines receive another visit from him this spring or summer, I think they’ll be right in the thick of things until the very end. As always, we will update you when we know more.
Bowers is the No. 101 overall player and the No. 3 tight end in the 2021 class on 247Sports’ composite rankings. There are zero crystal ball predictions. He holds other offers from Oregon, Washington, Georgia, Penn State, Notre Dame, Nebraska, USC, UCLA and more.
