The Michigan Wolverines got huge news tonight, as 2019 four-star offensive tackle Trente Jones committed to the program. He shared the news on his Twitter account.
Jones is the 332nd nationally ranked player and the 36th ranked offensive tackle in his class, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He had other scholarship offers from big time schools like Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Miami (FL), Auburn, Texas A&M and more. He is listed at 6-foot-6 and 282 pounds.
This is a huge pick up for the Wolverines. After signing just one offensive lineman — perhaps two if Ryan Hayes ends up on the offensive line — in the 2018 class, offensive line was always going to be one of Michigan’s top priorities in the 2019 class. Having the commitment be from a big offensive lineman from the state of Georgia makes this commitment a huge one for Jim Harbaugh the Wolverines.
Jones is the fifth player to commit to Michigan’s 2019 class, along with five-star defensive end Chris Hinton, four-star defensive end Stephen Herron, four-star offensive lineman Nolan Rumler and three-star linebacker Charles Thomas.
