Indiana, Virginia and Michigan are in the top 3 for 2019 WR Jordan Jakes.

On June 23, Baltimore (Md.) St. Frances Academy 2019 three-star wide receiver Jordan Jakes took an unofficial visit to Michigan.

“It was a great trip,” Jakes said after his trip to Ann Arbor. “I really enjoyed myself. I got to hang out with some of the players and check out the campus.”

Following the visit, Jakes decided to set a top 3 of Indiana, Virginia and Michigan. He originally planned to make a collegiate decision on Sept. 15 but has pushed it up to Aug. 15.

According to his tweet, it could even come sooner than Aug. 17.

“I just want to get it out of the way,” Jakes said.

Michigan

Of his 14 offers, the 6-foot-4, 195-pound receiver is down to the Hoosiers, Cavaliers and Wolverines. Jakes said he plans to officially visit Michigan in September for a game.

“Michigan is in my top 3 and they play big-time football,” Jakes said. “They can put me on a level that will get me to the NFL.”

During Jakes’ unofficial to Michigan, he had a chance to bond with true freshman quarterback Joe Milton. The former three-star quarterback from Orlando (Fla.) Olympia hopes Jakes chooses the Wolverines.

“He said that Michigan is the place to be and that they need big wide receivers like me,” Jakes said.

Indiana

Indiana offered the three-star prospect on April 4 and he took an unofficial visit on June 5.

“With Indiana, they have been on me the longest and I will be able to come in and play early,” Jakes said.

Virginia

Virginia did not offer Jakes until June 12, but he managed to take an unofficial visit and bond with receivers coach Marquez Hagans.

“With Virginia, the wide receiver coach has the knowledge to put my game on a different level so I can be the best I can be,” Jakes said.

The Transfer

Following his junior year at McDonough (Ga.) Eagles Landing Christian, Jakes announced his transfer to St. Frances Academy.

Jakes is ranked No. 1,083 in the 2019 class, No. 117 at his position and No. 21 in Maryland, according to 247Sports Composite.

Michigan has 19 commits in the 2019 class. None are listed at the wide receiver position.

The Wolverines plan to use 2019 three-star athlete George Johnson III, who committed to join Jim Harbaugh’s team on June 25, as a receiver, punt returner and Wildcat quarterback.
