Florida tight end Jeff Heuerman just left Ann Arbor, after
an unofficial visit with his father. Heuerman was hoping to leave today with an
offer from the Wolverines, and he got his wish.
“We just got out of a meeting with coach Rodriguez, and he
gave me the offer,” said Jeff. “They told me that they’re going to come after
me really hard, and they definitely want me at Michigan. I’m one of only three
tight ends they’ve offered, so I know they like me, too.”
Heuerman’s father was a former academic All American on the
Michigan basketball team, but isn’t trying to persuade him to choose his alma
“My dad is pretty excited, but he’s not telling me to choose
Michigan. He tells me what he thinks, but that’s about it,” Jeff told me.
Jeff doesn’t have a top list, and is actually on his way
to Notre Dame today. He’ll be stopping by Purdue on Thursday, and Ohio State on
Friday and Saturday. Despite his excitement about the Michigan offer, Heuerman
hasn't sorted the schools out, yet.
“I don’t have any favorites yet, because I want to visit
these other schools, too. I loved it up at Michigan, though. I will tell you
that,” said Heuerman. “I’m graduating early, so I will be deciding sometime in
the summer, and Michigan is in there. These coaches are really impressive. They’re
not negative recruiting at all, and being honest with me about where I fit in
the offense. I was very impressed, and I loved it up there.”
Jeff now holds offers from Michigan, Boston College,
Maryland, Memphis, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia,
and Wisconsin, among others.
