One of Michigan’s longest-tenured members of its 2022 class is three-star offensive lineman Connor Jones. The 6-foot-7, 285-pounder from Monument, Colorado locked in his commitment to the Wolverines on Christmas Eve last year and has been one of the ambassadors of the class.

Jones visited Ann Arbor this past weekend for “Victors Weekend,” a recruiting event that featured a ton of top targets for Michigan in the 2022 class. He went in depth with Maize n Brew to give us a glimpse at his time on campus.

“Pretty awesome,” Jones said of the weekend. “We had a great breakfast and meeting with the coaches. Me and my family met with coach Harbaugh. We finished touring the campus and then had a great dinner at the Victors Club.”

Due to the NCAA recruiting dead period, which was lifted earlier this month, Jones had actually yet to meet the coaches in-person until this trip.

“It was awesome,” Jones said of meeting Harbaugh and Moore. “Really enjoyed meeting with them and hanging out with them in person. Coach Moore is a great coach and can’t wait to get to work and be developed by him.”

Jones also spent a good amount of time with the other recruits on campus. The three recruits Jones spent the most time with were three-star safety Austin Brown, three-star offensive lineman Ashton Craig and unranked offensive lineman Alessandro Lorenzetti. Brown was offered back in March and has become a priority for Michigan in the defensive backfield, but the two offensive linemen are more recently-offered players.

Both Craig and Lorenzetti received their offers in the month of June by impressing the coaches in a camp setting. Craig got his offer back on June 6 and Lorenzetti earned his on June 14, so they both booked their Ann Arbor trip pretty quick.

“They’re solid guys. Definitely would love to have them as teammates for sure,” Jones said. “I think both of the offensive linemen are pretty impressed with what they saw.”

This visit was an official one for Jones, but he still plans on coming back on his own dime to Ann Arbor this fall for two games — Washington and “the team down south,” Jones said.

Michigan picked up two 2022 commitments so far from the weekend — three-star running back CJ Stokes and in-state three-star linebacker Aaron Alexander. Will there be more? Stay tuned for more reaction coming out of Victors Weekend.
