This Weekend's Visitors

There were rumors that there would no visitors this weekend because the coaching staff was apparently on vacation. Well, that's not true. Tremendous writer Steve Lorenz informed everyone that OL Patrick Kugler out of Wexford, PA would be visiting this weekend. OL commit Logan Tuley-Tillman has been saying for almost a week now that he'd be visiting Ann Arbor this weekend. Looks like it's the weekend of offensive lineman, as OL Jack Keeler out of Barrington, IL will also be in town. 

1. OL Logan Tuley-Tillman out of Peoria, IL (commit)
LT recently committed to Michigan. Read all about him here and about his commitment in specific here
LT is visiting Michigan this weekend to celebrate his commitment. He had said he would try to being some Illinois recruits with him, but we don’t know who those are yet. Don’t get too excited -- WR Laquon Treadwell is not one of them. Treadwell said he would be visiting that school in Columbus this weekend. 

2. OL Patrick Kugler out of Wexford, PA
Kugler is a 4* offensive tackle who stands 6’5” and 280 pounds. Rivals ranks him 54th in the nation. Similar to LT, Kugler holds more than 20 offers including ones from Michigan, Notre Dame, and Stanford. He is clearly one of the nation’s top offensive lineman. This leads me to think that Coach Hoke is planning on getting one more offensive lineman. Since he is only looking for one more, I expect him to be extremely picky. Kugler is a great player though, as he has great feet and is excellent at getting to the second level. As a sophomore, Kugler earned 1st Team All-Conference and Honorable Mention All-State Class AAAA honors. Interesting fact: Kugler is the son of Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Sean Kugler and the brother of Purdue tight end Robert Kugler. 

3. OL Jack Keeler out of Barrington, IL

Keeler is currently unranked on Rivals but he is said to be one of the top offensive lineman out of Illinois this year. That says a lot considering how many excellent lineman are coming out of Illinois this year. Keeler currently holds a few MAC offers, but he is planning on visiting Michigan State and Illinois along with Michigan this weekend. I would not be surprised if he received a couple more offers this weekend. Keeler stands 6'7" and 275 pounds. He has great size and is said to look great on film. Let's see if Coach Hoke offers him this weekend. 

As of now, those are the only three visitors for the weekend, however these things change all the time. I will add to this list if more visitors decide to visit Michigan.
