Finally. It only took 8 months but the new Michigan coaching staff has finally offered one of the top players in the region and one of the best athletes in the class, Clairton (PA) ATH Lamont Wade.
Wade is highly ranked by just about every single recruiting site, and is the #5 overall player in the class according to Rivals. So, what took the staff so long to offer him? After speaking with him, the staff was still evaluating him as a prospect. They didn’t take too long into September 1st to extend an offer and it’s coming at a good time as it looked like they were close to being an after thought for Wade, who told Wolverine247’s Steve Lorenz months ago that Michigan was a “dream school” ($).
Now with the offer in hand, look for the staff to ramp up the pressure to get back into the thick of things for his recruitment. If they make him a priority, I believe they’ll have a real shot at landing the Keystone State star.
