Wisconsin LB Vince Biegel (6'3", 210 lbs) was offered by Michigan yesterday, according to his head coach Tony Bioli. "Vince called Michigan yesterday and talked to Greg Mattison and then Brady Hoke, and they gave him a verbal offer. I think that's probably a big school in his book," said Coach Bioli.
Biegel now has 8 or 9 offers including BYU, Wisconsin, MSU, and Minnesota. There are some interesting factors with Vince's recruitment, and relationships to each school. "BYU is where his dad played, Wisconsin is obviously instate, and Greg Mattison has some contacts here in the Rapids area. I believe Mattison might have recruited Vince's dad back in the 80's as well. We're familiar with his name here, and he has some friends in the area," Bioli said.
Vince was a Baltimore Ravens fan when Mattison was the defensive coordinator, which is another bonus for Michigan. Biegel doesn't want his recruitment to play out too long according to his coach.
Biegel is scheduled to go to Wisconsin next week, BYU over spring break, and will be scheduling a visit to Michigan soon as well.
