As i've mentioned before I've been coaching AAU basketball and one of the kids that i've had since he was in 5th grade is now gaining national attention in both basketball and football. Shaun Wade, 2017 Point Guard + Cornerback, listed at 6-2 175 lbs on Rivals + 247. He's ranked nationally for his class in basketball but the offers in football started pouring in last month. At 6-2, for a freshman PG, he's also a nice size for corner.
He's already received football offers from Clemson, UNC, Virginia Tech, UCLA, Utah and the seemingly omnipresent, Ohio State Buckeyes. MSU has even asked for his contact info. Rivals does list UM as a school showing interest but no offer. He wants to play both sports and wants to hear from Michigan, mainly because of me. His mom says he only likes them because im his BFF (lol). So i'm in a position of influence, so to speak, and I want to see if there's anyway I can make sure he's actually on their radar. He plays for traditional football powerhouse (Trinity Christian, Jacksonville, Fl) where schools are ALWAYS there but UM just isn't really one of them.
Here's basketball highlights from national invite only camps, Fab Frosh and John Lucas, so the competition is stiff in the video. This will be his first year starting varsity for football, so footage is scarce for now but they are offering for a reason.
Please advise if you have any tips on how I can help him get UMs attention, aside from simply telling him to play well.
