Tim Jernigan, one of the top recruits in Florida this year will be visiting....MICHIGAN officially this Saturday for the match against the Iowa Hawkeyes. Jernigan is a four star prospect on ESPN, with a rating of 82 - very good. However scout.com ranks him as a top five player nationally! This would be a major get for Michigan.
Jernigan has always had Michigan in his top five, so this shouldn't come as a huge surprise, but I'm certainly relieved that the visit is finally happening. What's great about it is that he'll get to hang out with two other big time Florida prospects in Crawford and Watkins.
He was once considered a Florida lean, but now it looks like playing time will be a huge factor in the decision, which is why Michigan has a real good shot to land a top recruit. Don't expect a commitment from him this weekend though, Jernigan will take all 5 visits and probably leave it very late to sign.
