This is done yearly by the Detroit News, and I always think it is an interesting read. Their list of Blue Chip recruits around the state get asked some questions about their experience, and they reflect on it.
Some of the highlights of the article:
4. Lawrence Marshall
DL, 6-4, 240
Best recruiting experience: The Michigan-Ohio State game my junior year. That was my best by far. The atmosphere was intense. It was like you understood why it was a rivalry after watching it.
Worst recruiting experience: After I decommitted (from Ohio State), it was uncomfortable, but they understood. The social media? It comes with the territory.
Why not MSU? It wasn't the school for me. I like the school. I liked the staff. But it wasn't for me.
9. Maurice Ways
Detroit Country Day
WR, 6-4, 196
Best recruiting experience: When the coaches came to the school and the feeling of being wanted. The fact that they wanted me to be a part of their program. The whole process was great.
Worst recruiting experience: I didn't have one. It was positive all the way through.
Why not MSU? They didn't officially offer me. I guess they were going to. I liked it up there on my (unofficial) visit.
Notable: The youngest of three children, Ways is a quiet person for the most part. He likes going to movies with his friends and spending time with his family. “I don't like to boast,” he said. “I let my game speak for itself. I'm a goofy guy. I like to have fun. I know what's serious and what not to take seriously.”
