Talented OT prospect Kai-Leon Herbert includes Michigan in final group, sets decision date
In less than a week’s time, Michigan will learn if its recruiting efforts with a top offensive lineman have paid off.
Kai-Leon Herbert, a 4-star offensive tackle from American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.), announced his final three schools via Twitter on Friday evening. The Wolverines were the only Big Ten program to make the 6-foot-5, 284-pound lineman’s Top 3, accompanied by Miami and Florida. Herbert also revealed when he would make is final decision.

It should not come as much of a surprise that Michigan was included in his final list, and Herbert may be leaning slightly towards the Wolverines. He was in attendance for the program’s camp in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on June 3 and took an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor on June 17.
If the Wolverines could steal the Florida prospect away from the in-state programs, it would be a big win for Jim Harbaugh’s satellite camp investment.
Herbert is rated as the nation’s No. 22 offensive tackle for the Class of 2017 and the No. 31 overall prospect in the state of Florida.
