"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
I don't really follow wrestling, but this seems pretty significant: No. 2 senior recruit Coon commits to Michigan (that's no. 2 in the nation in the 2013 class).
Adam Coon, from Fowlerville, Michigan, decided on wrestling over football at the college level:
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Coon was recruited by several Division I programs for football, including Big Ten programs Michigan State (where his mother earned her master's degree), Northwestern, and Wisconsin.
But his father says football could still be in his future:
"It was a very difficult decision for him," said Dan Coon. "He has not completely given up on playing football again. Stephen Neal is one of our heroes, a great heavyweight wrestler who played football later on. So that's always in the back of his mind. So he's open to playing football later on if wrestling doesn't work out."
Looks like Coon is part of a pretty good recruiting class:
Coon is the third highly ranked recruit from the Class of 2013 that Michigan has landed. The other two are Ben Whitford (St. Johns, Mich.) and Brian Murphy (Glenbard North, Ill.), ranked fourth and 11th overall respectively in the Class of 2013.
