Picking Michigan was not difficult for Fairfield (Ohio) 2019 3-star tight end Erick All, especially after he visited on June 18.
“When I went up there, it was just great,” All said. “I fit in with everybody. I love how they use their tight ends. It was just great, I love Michigan.”
Following his visit, which included working out at a camp, All decided to commit on Sunday.
“Out of all the visits I’ve been to, none of them were like the Michigan visit,” All said. “There was no other school like Michigan.
“Making the commitment was actually easy.”
All has offers to play for Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Boston College, Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Duke, Eastern Michigan, Florida State, Indiana, Kent State, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Miami (Ohio), Minnesota, Notre Dame, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Toledo and Wake Forest.
The 6-foot-4, 225-pound standout end was recruited to Michigan by tight ends coach Sherrone Moore and linebackers coach Al Washington.
“[Al Washington] just kept telling me something special was going on up at Michigan,” All said. “I went up there for the camp and got to talk to Coach Harbaugh and that was great.
“I just love how [Sherrone Moore] coaches. I saw it at the camp with the routes he had us doing.”
All said it’s nice to be done with recruiting. He’s ready to settle down and enjoy his senior season at Fairfield High School.
“Everybody was always calling my phone asking what dates I can come because every school wanted me to visit for a day,” All said. “It was hard planning that. Then, all the reporters wanted me to call them all the time, so it was just difficult.”
All knows he needs to add some weight if he is to be an outstanding blocking and catching asset for the Wolverines.
“I’m just going to keep working and do great for our school team,” he said. “I want to get bigger, that’s the main thing.”
Since he is locked into the Wolverines, All has joined the 2019 commitment group chat. He aims to talk with his future teammates and start recruiting players to join him in Ann Arbor.
“I’m going to persuade some people to come,” he said. “I’ll talk to the other commits first and then recruit. I’m in a group chat with them right now. They are just saying congrats and welcome right now.”
He is ranked No. 505 in the nation, No. 22 at his position and No. 19 in Ohio, according to the 247Sports composite.
