I asked him if he is just coming up to the state or visiting and he said it is a visit.
What were you doing as a HS freshman?
Isaac Nauta is a 6-4, 240-pound ninth grader out of Buford, Georgia who plays both tight end and defensive end.
Nauta recently received his 4th BCS offer yesterday from the University of Michigan, becoming the first freshman to do so. “It’s really humbling and it really is an honor to be shown interest from a school like Michigan this early in the game,” says Nauta.
Although Nauta plays tight end and defensive end, he says he wants to be a tight end on the next level. ”I’ll head to Georgia, then up to Tennessee and I’ll try to go up to Clemson soon,” Nauta said. “I also will seriously consider attending Michigan.”
Per the Core 6 (which Jones is a part of) twitter account from 45 minutes ago:
"Visits will still go as planned to Michigan State, Michigan and Ohio State. Announcement June 27th for All American OL Jamarco Jones."
This is obviously contradictory to his tweet that the visits won't happen. Hopefully they do happen and it helps Michigan land Jones in the end.
For those of you who enjoy the history of college football, I just stumbled onto this amazing archive of historic film: www.historicfilms.com
A search for "Michigan" or "football" will keep you entertained for hours. Most clips include highlights from a bunch of major programs of that era. If you are only interested in Michigan you will either have to be patient and wait until the Michigan segments pop up, or you can use the text log tab to click on the "scene" from the particular newsreel that interests you.
Here's Michigan's 1943 victory over OSU - notice the band is advertising the sale of War Bonds - eek, advertising in the Big House! /s http://historicfilms.com/search/?type=all&q=michigan#p6t4226
