Michigan’s lone offensive line commit of the 2022 class, three-star Connor Jones, is set to speak with co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Sherrone Moore for the first time today, Jones told Maize n Brew.
“Just hoping to get a connection going (with Moore) and see what I can do to help with getting the best offensive line guys from the 2022 class to Ann Arbor,” Jones said.
The 6-foot-7, 285-pounder from Monument, Colorado committed to Michigan on Christmas Eve. Before his commitment, he was able to take a self-guided visit to Ann Arbor with his parents. He also swung by Indiana and Northwestern on that same trip.
Jones committed to the Wolverines when he was being recruited by Ed Warinner, who is now out of the role he had been in with Michigan the last three seasons. Warinner actually offered Jones back on Sept. 1, the first day coaches were able to reach out to the junior class, and that made a huge impression on Jones at the time.
“I’m feeling super pumped to be offered by Michigan,” Jones said back then. “It is one of my dream schools. My adrenaline is definitely flowing right now.
“Absolutely (it feels sweet to be offered on Sept. 1). I’ve been looking forward to this day.”
Despite the shakeup in the coaching staff, it seems like it has had no effect on Jones’ commitment whatsoever. Jones is hoping to be one of the ambassadors for the 2022 class and try to reel in top talent across the country, so this is certainly good news.
Michigan’s 2022 class is currently ranked No. 8 overall on 247Sports’ composite.
