He seems like a great kid who has his head on straight. Its easy to lose perspective when you have all of these big time colleges all over you. It'll be a pleasure to watch him for the next 4-5 years.

Ricardo was at Fan Day this year wearing Michigan gear and chatting it up with fans, signing autographs, and playing catch with a bunch of kids. When I told him it was pretty cool that he was there, he said he loved being around Michigan fans and his future teammates. I was really impressed. I also like the fact that he does his fair share of recruiting other kids to the team.

"On the days when I'm not going 100 percent or I'm slacking off, I'll just look at that big block M and that will give me the lift that I need to pick it up," he said.

Excellent quote.

I think it's really cool how excited he is about Michigan. He's been into M for a long time now, committed early, and seems to really embrace his Michigan Man status. Good for him.
