This is the only highlight video I could find
fair point that
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 mater.
“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.
Looks like he's a great kid who would be a nice pick up for the roster. Thanks Tom!
I like how his father is acting. Quite different than the story I have heard about how Chris Speilman's father told him if he went to Michigan he would never be allowed back in his house again.
The way I feel, if my son is going to be good enough to get a schollie from OSU, he will have other options that won't tear out my heart! While he would still be allowed in my home, I would be greatly disappointed!!!
Chris Speilman's father to the Mealer family? Or is it too late to save him?
this sounds like such a fun road trip to take with your dad.
enjoy it, jeff!
This kid sounds good, and the son of an Academic All-American at UM to boot. He probably has a good head on his shoulders, and likely grew up cheering for the Maize and Blue. Throw in the fact that we haven't brought in a TE in a couple years and this one should be ours to lose.
Nice run blocking, red zone target TE, sound good.
Well, Rivals has him listed as 225. Still a good sized kid.
I'll take my lies over yours. 225, 240 whose counting?
looks like he could also double as a pass rushing DE, a position we are in need of, with those physical attributes. RR is going after versatile players and Mr. Heuerman is nothing short.
Would be a welcome addition, seems like a pretty good recruit.
What I love about this is the reference to how honest and level the coaches seem and how there is no negative recruiting. The fact that these recruits point that out about Michigan only highlights that it must be going on everywhere else they visit.
I hope this season goes well - I think it will - and RR stays here for 20 years so he can push it back in the face of every asshole that has tried to tear him down the last two.
This is a major transition and there was a price to pay. Now we will start to see the rewards.
