BBrown: Michigan vs. Wisconsin Visitor List

Submitted by Brandon Brown on February 14th, 2014 at 1:07 PM

The Michigan coaches have setup an unofficial “Underclassmen Day” for the home basketball game against Wisconsin. It’s crazy to think that high school sophomores and freshmen are being invited to events already but that’s recruitin’. These young men won’t even be in college for another two to three years but with the Michigan coaches showing interest and having one 2016 recruit already committed, the process starts early.

I will continue to add to this list as I confirm whether or not the prospects will be in attendance. Until I can confirm it myself I will also include who reports whether or not prospects will be in attendance.

WR Kalebb Perry – Mount Pleasant High School – Mount Pleasant, MI

Howdy Brandon, always appreciate the updates. Do you get the impression the DeWeaver will be the QB in 2016 and the coaches are just taking their time, or does the interest seem to be more on DeWeaver's side and the coaches will pursue other options more intensly then him once the lock up the 2015 QB?

I think the interest is mutual and on pretty much the same level. I think it's a littler early to say that DeWeaver will be THE guy, but he's from Trotwood where the coaches are comfortable.  It's tough to start looking at the 2016 class at the QB spot considering there doesn't seem to be a realistic option with an offer yet in 2015. Also throw in the fact that Nussmeier is now calling the offensive shots which wasn't the case when contact was initiated with DeWeaver. It will be interesting to follow.

Not that it's a really big deal, but there is no such place as Downers Grove High School. There is a Downers Grove North HS and a Downers Grove South HS. Eric Swenson attends Downers Grove South High School.

Underclassmen Day didnt go too smoothly for the home team.  Hope the atmosphere doesnt hurt our chances with any of these guys.  Luckily plenty of time until any of these guys need to make a decision.
