When Traverse City (Mich.) West class of 2016 offensive lineman Thiyo Lukusa made a visit to Michigan last month, speculation existed that he may commit to the Wolverines.
Lukusa emerged from that visit weekend without a commitment being made, but he admits it was a thought for him.
"I do like Michigan a lot, but there's just so many things [to consider]," he said. "My recruiting is obviously in the early stages. There are some superstar guys who get all their offers when they are super young, but I think my best football is yet to be played and there are other offers to come."
The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Lukusa grew up a fan of Michigan and said the visit went well despite deciding not to commit.
"My visit to Michigan was a really good time," Lukusa said. "They had me with Logan Tuley-Tillman, who is a cool guy."
The Wolverines offered Lukusa in January and it was immediately followed by an offer from Wisconsin. Michigan State offered the sophomore lineman last summer and all three schools have his interest. Lukusa, though, still does not want to drag the process out.
"I would love to get it done by the end of this summer [but] I just want to enjoy the process," he said. "I am excited where the process is going, and with each individual school as well."
Further visits this spring and summer could be taken to schools throughout the Big Ten Conference, and he is also hoping to see some schools in the South if interest comes from that region of the country.
"Alabama is coming up this spring to see me," Lukusa said. "I'd like to get in contact with Texas A&M, Tennessee and a couple other SEC schools."
