Another quick chat with a big time 2015 prospect tonight as I caught up with Denmark native Hjalte Froholdt. Froholdt is currently in America for 10 days taking a bit of a recruiting tour that included a game at Arkansas last week, a stop by Alabama yesterday, another at Florida State today, with his country-wide travels culminating in Ann Arbor Saturday for the game against Indiana.
Froholdt will release a version of his top list after his visit to Ann Arbor Saturday, but he already told me that Michigan will probably be toward the top of his list.
Michigan was in on Froholdt early when they offered him at the beginning of May and at that time he listed Michigan as his definite leader. He spoke very highly of the Wolverines and Coach Mattison back then, but over the summer his recruitment really blew up and he's now being recruited by some of the best programs in the country.
I think Froholdt is the top priority for the Michigan coaches on the interior of the defensive line in 2015, evidenced by only two other DL's having offers at this time and prospects like Tim Setlle and Elijah Taylor not having one.
I think Michigan will stay at or near the top of his list even as his offer list grows and his unorthodox recruitment unwinds.
