Brady Hoke and the Michigan Wolverines already have one of the nation's top incoming classes, but are now beginning to build the 2013 class.
One of the most coveted junior offensive tackle prospects in the country, Logan Tuley-Tillman (Peoria, IL), will visit the University of Michigan this weekend for the third time in less than two months.
The Wolverines filled almost every spot in their 2012 recruiting class before the 2011 season got underway, which allowed the coaching staff to get a head start on swaying some of the nation's top prospect in the class of 2013.
While on campus Tuley-Tillman will attend Michigan's basketball game against the Wisconsin Badgers on Sunday and the Manual High School star will get a chance to meet a few members of the Wolverines' coaching staff.
"I'm going to be up there this weekend," Tuley-Tillman said. "I'll leave probably (Saturday) afternoon to go up there. Then on Sunday, we'll actually get to the university. I'll get to meet the strength coach and the offensive coordinator, and we're going to the basketball game, too."
The 6'7" and 285 pound prospect does not expect to make a commitment anytime soon due to the fact he already has scholarship offers from 12 major conference schools but says Michigan is his top school at the moment.
"Michigan, Alabama, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, then South Carolina, but that's not anything set in stone" he said. "Those are just the ones I can remember. Michigan is probably my number one right now."
In the coming weeks, Tuley-Tillman will attend Alabama's junior day at the end of January, which will be followed by visits to South Carolina and Arkansas.
Who does Michigan need more in their 2013 recruiting class?
Another class of 2013 prospect the Wolverines are already in good standing with is Joliet Catholic Academy running back Ty Isaac (Joliet, IL), who attended the Proving Ground combine in Phoenix, Arizona earlier this week.
Isaac already holds 13 offers and will be heading back to school next week, but his head coach let him know there will likely be a number of college coaches dropping in to pay him a visit.
"I'm not exactly sure which schools are planning to be in school, but my head coach (Dan Sharp) said I should expect several coaches to be wandering the halls at school starting again on Monday," Isaac told EdgyTim.com. "I'll definitely get out to Michigan soon and hopefully more schools."
Do not expect a decision anytime soon from Isaac either, but Michigan already has two commitments in their 2013 recruiting class and will be in the hunt for both of these elite prospects until they make their formal announcements in the coming year.
