See a little of why Michigan offered a seventh-grade prospect.
WATCH: Michigan 2023 QB Offer Shows Out In Competition
Fans were skeptical when the Wolverines offered a 7th grader on Monday.
And understandably so. We’re still embroiled in the midst of a heated 2019 cycle. With 2023 being so far away, it’s difficult to fathom offering a youngster who hasn’t even taken a snap at the high school level.
But you can understand a lot more when you watch the film.
The D Zone’s Jeff Corrion posted a video on Twitter on Tuesday night of 2023 QB Dante Moore’s performance earlier this month at the SMSB All-Star Team, which SoundMind SoundBody held at Michigan Stadium.
Watching the film, you can see that, despite his young age, Moore is physically gifted and why, after the Michigan staff worked him out at their own camp on Monday, they pulled the trigger.
WolverinesWire spoke to former Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner on Monday night about Moore, as he coaches and works with him regularly.
Gardner elucidated on what makes Moore special, and why an early offer by his alma mater was commendable.
“The best thing about him, aside from the fact that he can make most all the throws that high school kids make, is he’s really just a young kid who enjoys working hard and playing football!” Gardner told WolverinesWire. “He’s a great kid who’s respectful and focused on all the right things, which for him right now are doing well in school, playing football, working out, playing soccer, doing his chores, and just being a KID!”
