Earlier today, Michigan sent out its second offer to a 2026 tight end in two days as Frisco (Tx.) Lone Star’s Ryder Mix shared the news on Twitter. Yesterday, the Wolverines offered Brunswick (Ga.) prospect Heze Kent, both recruits with over 15 offers at that point.

“I’m super grateful to be offered by them because of how much history the program holds and their consistent success,” Mix told Wolverine Digest.

According to Mix, Grant Newsome and James Brown were the UM coaches who offered the 6-4, 225-pound tight end on Tuesday morning. Now, Michigan joins programs such as Oklahoma, Oregon, TCU and Texas A&M in pursuit for the physical pass catcher.

At the moment, Mix has unofficial visits to Texas A&M and Oklahoma lined up for the future, and he’d like to add Michigan to that list if circumstances allow.

“Right now I have nothing set in place to go up to Michigan, but I definitely want to get up there as soon as possible,” Mix said.

Last year, Mix caught 16 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns en route to an undefeated district championship campaign. Overall, the Rangers went 10-2 on the season, and Mix earned All-District honors for his efforts. Not long after, Mix finished his sophomore highlight tape, and that’s when he says his recruitment truly kicked off, landing 10 offers during the final week of January.

“It was a big building season for me and finding out my role in our offense,” Mix said.

This Spring, Mix is running the 100-meter and 200-meter dash in addition to throwing shot put for Lone Star before beginning a summer full of prep for his junior season.
