Michigan gained the third commitment of the quarantine era when 2021 four-star tight end Louis Hansen joined the fold on Thursday afternoon.
The Michigan coaches flexed their muscles in Massachusetts once again by picking up Hansen over offers from Boston College, Georgia, Iowa, LSU, Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and many others. The four-star is ranked as the No. 2 player in the state behind top 100 guard Drew Kendall, another Michigan target.
The ranking services are pretty divergent on Hansen at this point. Rivals has him in the top 100 as the No. 66 player overall and No. 4 tight end. On the other hand, 247Sports rates him as a three-star and the No. 13 tight end. ESPN...has a generic three-star rating and doesn’t even display he has a Michigan offer. All this adds up to the No. 187 player in the country and No. 8 tight end on the composite.
Standing 6-foot-4.5 and weighing 222 pounds, Hansen caught 39 receptions for 548 yards and at least four touchdowns in eight games as a junior. He also plays defensive end, notching eight sacks last season.
As for Michigan, this will probably not end the pursuit at the position in the 2021 class. Wanting two tight ends, the Wolverines’ remaining top targets include four-stars Thomas Fidone and Brock Bowers.
