For those of us that live in Virginia there is a great opportunity to see Aramide Olaniyan play this Friday, Oct 9. His team Woodberry Forest is playing Collegiate School at Grove Jones Field on Collegiate's campus in Richmond, VA. It is a beautiful field in a great neighborhood. I believe both teams are undefeated and ranked at the top of the private school class within Virginia. Collegiate has produced D1 players including NC State's current QB so it should be a chance to see what Olaniyan can do against solid competition. As most know he recently decommitted from Duke and has visited A2 with a return trip in the works. It would be great if a couple of us could attend wearing Michigan gear - I will also bring a block M flag that will be hard for he and his family to miss. Just want him to know that Michigan Alums are everywhere and have an interest in seeing him play. Kickoff is at 4PM. Put up posts if you are able to attend.

Just don't offer to take him to dinner to convince him, like that one guy suggested....
Didnt that guy like offer to go to his high school to convince him to come to M? It was weird, very Mr. Garrison-ish.
I'm pretty sure he offered to do everything but peer into the school's windows to try to catch a glimpse of the kid.
I can never see these kids play because I'm always busy on Friday nights. Schools around me produce great kickers (two are at Virginia Tech) and the occasional good-athlete-who's-too-stupid-to-last-in-college skill player.
