Elite 2013 Running Back Jordan Wilkins Visiting Michigan This Weekend

According to his Twitter, 4* RB Jordan Wilkins, who recently visited Auburn, has said he is coming up to Ann Arbor next Saturday or Sunday to visit Michigan.  I highly advise you all to look into him and keep a watchful eye out.  As we all know, Michigan is very in the mix for 5* RB Derrick Green, but Wilkins is no slouch himself.

Jordan is a consensus 4* player and Rivals has him as the 11th player at his position.  He is 6'1" and 210 pounds, so definitely a bigger back, which is what the Michigan coaches seem to be looking for at the position.  He has said he wants to play in a tough ground and pound offense, so naturally, with this amazing offensive line that the Michigan coaches have put together, it's safe to say Michigan would be a logical choice for him.

Per his Twitter account it looks like it's between Auburn, Michigan, Tennesse, or Vanderbilt.  As we all know, once recruits visit Ann Arbor they usually put Michigan at the top of their list as we can tell from Michigan's great recruiting so far and I'm sure that this could very well be the same after Wilkins checks out Ann Arbor.  All-American Offensive linemen commits David Dawson and Logan Tuley-Tillman are on him hard so that can't hurt as far as Michigan's hopes at landing him.

There are rumors that Jordan would have committed on Monday after his Auburn visit, but there seemed to be concern from his mother about committing too early.  So we will have to see if his high interest in Auburn has an effect on his Michigan visit.  Hopefully he takes in the experience and sways towards the Wolverines.  

Hopefully over the coming week we will hear more from Jordan about where he stands, particularly in regards to Michigan's standing.  Like I said, keep your eyes out because we have gotten two commitments this week and Jordan seems interested in Michigan as well.

Here's his highlight film, so you can see what Michigan would be getting if the Wolverines land his commitment:
