There's a nice column by Sam Webb in the Detroit News this afternoon about Jabrill Peppers and his visit to Michigan.
(Michigan scores big on visit from five star CB Jabrill Peppers.) LINK: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20130502/OPINION03/305020471/1131/SPORTS0201/Michigan-scores-big-visit-from-five-star-CB-Jabrill-Peppers
In brief, his visit went very, very, well, and put Michigan up.
"Everything (on the visit) caught me by surprise," admitted Peppers. "It is no secret that I grew up a Michigan fan. Obviously I had high hopes for the visit, but they clearly exceeded those. I was just like, 'Wow.' I don't want to give too much away (laughter), but it was a good visit."
It wasn't a red-carpet treatment that allowed Brady Hoke and Co. to set the visit standard by which others are now being measured. Turns out, it was exact opposite. "Real recognize real," Peppers said matter-of-factly. "That's the shortest and sweetest way you can say it. Real recognize real. They didn't put on a show. Basically who they are — they remind me of my coaches right now. That's how comfortable we felt there.
Jabrill is also very positive on Mattison. He says:
"I love the way Coach Greg Mattison uses his corners and his scheme. It absolutely fits into my style of play — aggressive (and) fearless. He wants his corners to be fearless. If he wants you to go lockup on an island, you had better lockup on that island. If he wants you to come off the edge, you better come off the edge ready to bring some pain."
He added: "The players (at Michigan) were as cool as could be. I don't even really know how to explain it. It is just a feeling you get."
Sam has a lot more to say . . . Obv., Peppers is an incredible talent, which everyone agrees with. It basically comes down to his visit to Stanford.
