Less than a week following the commitment of former Louisville kicker James Turner, the Wolverines are back in action. Michigan football has offered highly sought-after transfer portal target, Trey Amos. The offer shows a few things that may be going on in the mind of Jim Harbaugh. Not only is he still very interested in pursuing this transfer portal, but he is looking to maximize this class. If the Wolverines find a way to land this target, the National Championship or bust talks will be at an all-time high.

Michigan football has its eyes on a transfer portal target out of Louisiana Lafayette

With the spring transfer portal class coming to a close, we’re beginning to have an idea of what schools’ final rosters will look like in 2023. Still, before that happens, Jim Harbaugh isn’t entirely done window shopping yet. Transfer portal target Trey Amos, a cornerback out of Louisiana Lafayette, was the most recent to get a look from the Wolverines’ head coach.

Amos, a 6-foot-1, 197-pound prospect out of the great state of Louisiana, has the exact build that Harbaugh loves in his defensive backs. Not only that, but he has three years of experience under him and has shown elite coverage ability.

As a three-star prospect coming out of high school, he had some improvement to do but had the body to be something special in college. Now, after three years at Louisiana Lafayette, it appears he’s done the improving. Over his career, he has 30 games of playing experience, 60 tackles and one interception.

While the numbers might not pop out at you, he has plenty of talent when you watch him on the field. He could become something special with teaching from coaches like Jim Harbaugh and Steve Clinkscale. It only makes things more enticing, considering he still has two years of eligibility remaining.

The Wolverines aren’t the only ones with eyes on Trey Amos

Through the month of May, the name Trey Amos has been one of the hottest in all of college football. Getting an offer from Jim Harbaugh is a big deal in itself. What puts this transfer portal target over the top is when you consider his offer list in the last three days alone.

Since May 1st, Amos has received an offer from most of the top schools in the country, including multiple national championship contenders. The list includes schools like Penn State, Oklahoma, Oregon, LSU, Alabama and many others.

Putting position need aside; it’s clear this kid has something special. That’s why he’s gained so much attention in such a short time, and for Michigan, there’s an extra incentive to gain his commitment out of the transfer portal. The Wolverines currently need to improve in the depth department at cornerback, and he could fill that hole in a significant way. Whether he would start opposite Will Johnson is to be determined, but at the very least, he could bring in a veteran presence.

If Jim Harbaugh and Michigan football can find a way to pick up this big-time transfer portal target, things will be looking excellent heading into 2023. Many fans already view this season as a national championship or bust. Many of the players view it in a similar light. A player like Trey Amos could help get them a whole lot closer. Still, the Wolverines must gain his commitment before that can even be considered an option.
