Llewellyn’s recruitment is beginning to blow up.

With Mike Hart now in Ann Arbor to coach running backs and Sherrone Moore now coaching the offensive linemen, versatile assistant coach Jay Harbaugh is back to coaching the tight ends at Michigan. He coached the position earlier in his career, so he knows the ins and outs of what the program wants out of the position.

He might not have been as quick to the punch as Maurice Linguist with sending out offers, but it didn’t take long for Harbaugh to extend his first offer of the cycle. On Friday afternoon, he offered 2022 tight end Jason Llewellyn.

“It went great, that was the first time that I’ve talked to him over the phone but I’ve talked to him for a few days,” Llewellyn told Maize n Brew. “I was very excited and humbled. Michigan is a huge school and it’s awesome to have been noticed by them and given this opportunity to play football for them.”

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound prospect plays at Aledo High School in Aledo, Texas. Earlier this month, his team took home the Texas 5A D-II State Championship. He finished the 2020 season with 28 receptions, 453 yards and five touchdowns.

Now that he has the offer in hand, Llewellyn said he is more interested in U-M, but admits he “will have to do some more research” on the university and football program.

Other schools Llewellyn has offers from that he is interested in are Arkansas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, TCU, Indiana, Baylor and Michigan State. Once things open back up, he is hoping to visit Michigan, as well as those other schools.

As far as what he is looking for in his future school, Llewellyn wants the best of everything.

“Somewhere that really feels like home, that’s why it’s tough because I can’t take visits right now,” Llewellyn said. “But a place that I am going to get an amazing degree, a place that is going to prepare me for the next level and somewhere that I can spend the next four years.”

After he is able to take some visits once the dead period is lifted, Llewellyn will cut his list of suitors down and then figure things out from there.

Llewellyn is not ranked, but he probably won’t be unranked for long with the offers he has.

A bulk of his offers have come over the last few weeks, which shouldn’t be a coincidence considering his junior year highlight reel was put out around that same time. You can check those highlights out below, which shows his versatility as a receiver and blocker.
