This probably doesn't need to be said, but Sam Webb dropped a "gut feeling" on 4* OT Jalen Mayfield out of Grand Rapids Catholic Central this morning on WTKA The Michigan Insider. Commitment time again is 7PM Eastern this evening.
Originally committed to Minnesota before decommitting after a Michigan offer.
6'5" 255lbs may seem small, but Sam mentions other guys with similar measurables and similar athleticism from past years....
Jake Fisher (Oregon OT who Greg Fry originally found and locked a commitment for Michigan before the staff got fired)
Jason Spriggs (Indiana)
All early round draft picks. All pros. All around 255 lbs coming into senior year.
The staff is not worried about his size, and neither should you. There's a reason why he's a 4* OT despite being only 255 lbs. Obviously only time will tell, but the ceiling could be an early round NFL draft pick based off what scouts and others have said. Something to be excited about.
I've been a little non-existent lately with my recruiting updates as I've been focusing on the new addition to our family as well as growing my business. The class is smaller so there should be less 2018 news to follow compared to prior years, but I will do my best to throw out good info when I hear it from Sam.
Have a blessed day.
