Not sure of the significance considering he didn't have an offer and is heading to JUCO for a year since he'd already spent his academic eligibility (but not his athletic eligibility somehow) so he probably wouldn't qualify at UM anyway.
Some strong offers though according to ESPN; Alabama, Illinois, West Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Iowa, Notre Dame, PSU...
Very telling? Sure, very telling.
Edit: Looks like he's a 4 star on both Rivals and Scout:
