Tim Drevno’s departure likely won’t impact Michigan’s 2019 recruiting class

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Tim Drevno’s resignation from Michigan hasn’t affected the makeup of Michigan’s latest recruiting class.

Michigan’s 2019 recruits have been relatively quiet regarding the departure of Drevno, Michigan’s third-year offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. Trente Jones, however, said it doesn’t affect his recent commitment.

Jones is a 4-star tackle from Loganville, Ga. He verbally committed to Michigan’s 2019 freshman class on Feb. 21.

“Yes, I was very surprised,” Jones told Land of 10 in a text message. “I didn’t know how to feel at first, but I committed to the school, so I am not switching my commitment.”

Michigan’s 2019 class remains intact. Five players are currently committed: Jones, Nolan Rumler, a 4-star guard from Akron, Ohio; Christopher Hinton, a 5-star defensive end from Norcross, Ga.; Stephen Herron, a 4-star defensive end from Louisville, Ky.; and Charles Thomas, a linebacker from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

Multiple outlets reported Drevno’s resignation Friday, two days after Jones’ commitment to the Wolverines. Michigan has not confirmed Drevno’s resignation. Drevno spent three seasons as Michigan’s offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.

Ed Warinner is expected to take over as Michigan’s offensive line coach. Warinner joined the Wolverines as an offensive analyst in January, but he has coached the offensive line at Army, Air Force, Kansas, Illinois, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Minnesota.

Michigan currently has the No. 7 recruiting class for 2019, according to 247Sports.

The early signing period for 2019 recruits is in December. Verbal commitments are non-binding until a recruit signs a national letter of intent.
