Earlier today (Tuesday) 2015 5-star running back Jacques Patrick visited the University of Michigan. Patrick is yet another running back to visit Ann Arbor in recent weeks and seems to be enjoying himself.
Just arrived at Michigan ! #GoBlue Get me to 10k while I'm here

Patrick is viewed as a top-three running back recruit in the 2015 recruiting class. Just by having him on campus doesn’t make Michigan his leader; nearly every school in the country will be in on this kid until he commits.
Ty Isaac‘s transfer will ultimately shake up Michigan’s approach as far as number of backs they bring in, but simply adding one of the three (Damien Harris, Mike Weber) would not be a loss for the Wolverines at all.
There is a thought that if Michigan doesn’t bring in Harris and Weber, they won’t have a successful recruiting class, and that’s simply not true. Patrick alone would only add to an impressive backfield, a combination of any of the backs would be remarkable for Brady Hoke.
But before we get ahead of ourselves, there is not even the slightest indication that Patrick will choose Michigan, or is even close to any decision as of now.
We will continue to update the process as it progresses.
