Wolverines continue strong offensive line recruiting

California tackle Jeffrey Persi latest to pledge to 2020 class.

J Serra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, CA) three-star offensive tackle Jeffrey Persi committed to Michigan on Tuesday.

Taking his official visit to Ann Arbor last weekend, Persi saw enough on the trip to commit. Holding 26 offers, the Wolverines edged out UCLA and Oklahoma for Persi's services.

OL coach Ed Warinner prefers big-bodied tackles and was the primary recruiter for the California standout. At 6-foot-7, 265 pounds, Persi certainly fits the bill.

He spoke with The Michigan Insider's Brice Marich about his relationship with Warinner.

"(Coach Warinner) has been great. Says it like it is and doesn't sugarcoat anything - I really like that. So far, our relationship has been great, and I know he's staying in touch with my parents as well."

Persi becomes the fourth offensive lineman to commit in Michigan's 2020 class joining Zak Zinter, Reece Atteberry and Micah Mazzccua.

A raw prospect, Persi is an interesting project for Warinner to mold. His size is impressive and has plenty of room to add weight to his frame.

The No. 43 tackle prospect in the class according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, the three-star has risen nearly 400 spots in their overall rankings since September of last year.

The Wolverines have now collected six commits in the last three days. Due to this run, the class has moved into the top-ten nationally and is second in the Big Ten.

Recruiting director Matt Dudek has hinted at a couple of more commits being on their way.

Safe to say Michigan's official visit weekend was a success.

This class is coming along really well. Corum and Henning could make it a top-five group.
