The Michigan Wolverines have picked up another commitment this weekend from 2023 Lake Braddock (VA) tight-end Jalen Hoffmann.
Hoffmann was previously committed to Bucknell but was offered a preferred walk-on opportunity by Grant Newsome this past Wednesday. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound hybrid tight end moved quickly on the offer and committed to Michigan after a weekend visit.
“(Michigan) has great education and a great town,” Hoffman told Maize n Brew following his visit. “I loved the coaching staff and it’s the best opportunity for myself and my family”
A Virginia native, Hoffmann said he has the ability to split out wide as a receiving threat.
“I consider myself a hybrid tight end,” Hoffmann said. “I am great at running routes and catching the ball.”
As a team captain, Hoffmann helped lead his Lake Braddock squad to a 9-3 record. He caught 30 passes for 548 yards and five touchdowns as a senior.
Hoffmann mentioned his connection to current Michigan tight end and former Lake Braddock star Matthew Hibner as a reason for his commitment.
