Miami Football Recruiting: Michigan Visits Michael Irvin Jr.

It might only be 2013, but some college football programs are looking towards the future. To most teams that means landing the best recruit from the Class of 2014, but some are looking even farther than that for their next big star. One of those teams is the Michigan Wolverines.

On May 14th, the Wolverines sent their running backs coach, Fred Jackson, to Plano, Texas in order to visit 2016 wide receiver Michael Irvin Jr..

Irvin Jr. is the son of former Miami Hurricane and Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin and is currently a freshman at Prestonwood Christian High School.

The young WR might only be a freshman in high school, but is receiving very early attention from three schools. These schools are the Michigan Wolverines, Miami Hurricanes, and Texas Longhorns.

Although, the Irvins are not too concerned about recruitment at this time. Michael Irvin told 247 Sports,

He’s just a freshman right now so we’re not worried about the recruiting process. We’re working on him maintaining his game and trying to be the best that he can be.

However, Miami seems to be an early favorite. Even though Irvin Jr. is a freshman, I would be shocked if he didn’t commit to the Canes because the kind of connection in which his dad has with the university. His dad was a huge player for the 1987 National Champion Miami team.

When asked about where his son will go, Irvin Sr. told 247 Sports:

There are some choices God gives us and some he doesn’t.  He (Irvin Jr.) can’t choose his mom, his dad, his brothers or sisters or what school he goes to. Everything else, he can choose. He WILL go to the University of Miami.

In 2012, Irvin Jr. racked up 367 receiving yards on 39 receptions and scored four touchdowns.
