On Tuesday, Maize n Brew reported 2022 three-star offensive line commit Connor Jones was set to talk with Sherrone Moore for the first time since taking over as co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach. That conversation ended up taking place last night, and Jones recapped his conversation with us.
“It went good,” Jones told Maize n Brew. “It was a great first good call to get the ball rolling with getting to know each other. He had a lot of great things to say about me and my film. I like his energy and enthusiasm. Looking forward to building this relationship.
“It was more to get to know each other. He’s looking forward to working with me and developing me, which has me excited, too. We have more calls to discuss all those details.”
The 6-foot-7, 285-pounder from Monument, Colorado committed to Michigan on Christmas Eve. He was originally being recruited by Ed Warinner, but now will be recruited by Moore moving forward now that he is the offensive line coach at Michigan.
With recruiting, you will occasionally see commits end up looking elsewhere if they end up losing their position coach before they get to campus. But with this recruitment, I don’t see Jones looking elsewhere at all. He seems locked in and wants to be one of the leaders of the 2022 class. He has said in the past he wants to help bring in the best talent to Michigan, and he continues to have that mindset.
Jones is the No. 78 offensive tackle, No. 6 player in Colorado and No. 784 overall player on the composite.
