Tight end seems to be a position of focus this week as a few offers have gone out and several other prospects are being checked up on. I spoke with Tyler Petite today and he's another player that is on the tight end board somewhere and could potentially be offered if some of the other offerees fall through.
Petite was visited by Coach Nussmeier and was told that the coaching staff has seen his film and really like the way that he plays. Nussmeier invited Petite to the Junior Day, February 23, and also let him know that the coaches plan on visiting him later this year.
Petite is a California kid but he says he'd like to try and attend the junior day if his schedule is open. He's never been to Michigan so he'd like to check it out.
The coaches offered two tight ends today and figure to be in good shape with Wheatley Jr. so at this point I'd put Petite in the back-up plan category. If he attends the junior day he might move up the board slightly.
