Michigan quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler was recently in the home of Flower Mound, Texas signal-caller Nick Stephens, who will be taking an official visit to U-M beginning today. According to the Abilene, Texas Reporter-News, he made another stop along the way.

The recent departure of Matt Gutierrez has caused a flurry of activity with regards to Michigan quarterback recruiting. GoBlueWolverine.com reported that Flower Mound, Texas slinger Nick Stephens has been offered by the Wolverines, and will visit Ann Arbor this weekend.

It appears Wolverine quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler was not done after the Stephens visit on Tuesday. Abilene High School signal-caller Taylor Potts told the Abilene News-Reporter that Loeffler was in his home on Wednesday, and a Michigan visit was in the works. "I'm going to go visit Michigan, and I need to visit before I can make a decision about anything," Potts said.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Potts is another recent Michigan target who is verbally committed to another school. Potts pledged to Texas Tech in March. "I'm still committed to Tech," he said. "Michigan is just another option to look at and see what else is out there."

What the future holds for Pott should he decide to head North was discusses during his meeting with Loeffler. "Ideally, they like to redshirt most of their quarterbacks and give them an extra year to learn the offense," Potts said. "The possibility to back Chad Henne up is there. I'd just have to work my butt off."

Potts said a Michigan visit would take place before National Signing Day on Feb. 1, but wasn't sure when.
