Ed Warinner and Michigan Wolverines just picked up a Christmas gift with the promise of three-star offensive winger Connor Jones in 2022.
The 6-foot-7-foot (285-pound) pound from the Colorado Monument chose Michigan instead of other offers from Indiana, Northwest Territories, West Virginia, Virginia and other places.
Warinner paid Jones on September 1, and the coach would have access to the junior class on the first day, and the Wolverines immediately jumped to the top of the list. He told Maize n Brew that day that he was very happy to receive this offer.
Jones said at the time: “I feel that Michigan will provide a lot of services.”
“Absolutely (it feels sweet to offer it on September 1st). I have been looking forward to this day.”
Jones and his family went to the Midwest last weekend, to Indiana on Friday, Michigan on Saturday and the Northwest Territories on Sunday. He told Maize n Brew that he liked the three visits very much, but the trip to Michigan was obviously the most impressive.
“It’s great,” Jones said of his UM trip. “We have to take a self-guided tour. We can see the campus and all the buildings I need.
“I think it feels like home.”
Jones is the first offensive forward to join the Wolverines in 2022. He joined Michigan State’s 2022 class four-star defensive center Alex VanSumeren, four-star guard Tyler Martin (Tyler Martin), three-star guard Marlin Klein (Marlin Klein) and three-star defensive center Devin Davonte Miles (Davonte Miles). It now ranks sixth in the 247Sports portfolio.
You can view the highlights in the third grade below, where you can know that he is a tenacious child early on until you whistle. He played left tackles in these clips, but he also played right back and right tackles in his sophomore game, so Jones is a very flexible forward.
