There has been a lot of chatter and rumors that the new coaching staff wanted to bring in a third offensive lineman and now there\’s even more proof of that after offering UConn offensive line commit Nolan Ulizio.

Ulizio is the definition of an under the radar prospect. He\’s rated as a 2* prospect on every recruiting site even though his highlight tape is actually pretty impressive. His size, tenacity, athleticism and consistent finishes are the main things I noticed and believe that\’s what the coaching staff saw too.
Though he just committed to UConn in mid-December, I think this offer from Michigan likely puts them in the drivers seat for his signature on National Signing Day. However, I\’m sure he won\’t be the last lineman offered before then and may have to visit Ann Arbor before they will accept his commitment.
