Hello: Trente Jones

Submitted by DrMantisToboggan on February 21st, 2018 at 5:42 PM

4-star OT Trente Jones from Grayson High School has committed to Michigan.

 

He's currently the 332nd overall prospect in the 247 composite, but that feels low to me. He's an Under Armour All-American game invitee, and plays in a strong division in Georgia. Some think he's better than top 100 teammate OL Wanya Morris. At 6'6 282, he moves well for his size but still has a frame to add good weight. It's a really good pick up at a position of need. 

 

Sorry, but I am the most technilogically challenged millennial and not properly embedding his commitment tweet.

That really might happen, but Marcel Lewis is a three star right now, and we should be elated to get his commitment. He will not be a three star for much longer, IMO. I think he is a top 5, possibly top 3 player in the state, and a perfect LB for Don Brown. He and Charles Thomas, with Lance Dixon for Viper, would be a great LB haul in 2019.

Very true. Solomon seems to have been a Michigan lean for a long time, and we just got DeLoach on campus. I am a fan of both of their films as well - DeLoach really hits people. 

 

Seems like it'll be a numbers game. Are we wanting to take another LB mega-class like we did in 2017? We will find out. Lots of good options right now.

I’m sure hoping for Trente Jones. He’s got CBS to Michigan in the last hour and they are both from southern guys, one who is a Georgia reporter. Seemed to enjoy his visit the other day too so would not be shocked in the least if he pulled the trigger.
