Several Cass Tech (Detroit) football players visited campus this weekend for unofficial visits. With the amount of talent the Michigan football coaching staff has pulled from the Technicians over the past few seasons (current player Will Campbell, signees Royce Jenkins-Stone and Terry Richardson along with 2013 commits David Dawson and Jourdan Lewis) Michigan won't be missing on any future Cass Tech players it seems, either.
More than 10 Technicians visited campus on Saturday. The players toured the Big House, the locker rooms and had a chance to watch some of Michigan's spring practice.
"We got to go to the Big House and take a picture," 2015 quarterback prospect Jayru Campbell said. "Most of the Cass kids that I was playing catch with, we were doing a victory dance into the end zone."
Also visiting with Campbell were prospects Johnny Miggins, Damon Webb, Michael Webber, Keith Jones, Kendal English, Monty Health, Brian Sanders, and Joshua Alabi, among others.
Miggins, a running back and defensive back, visited with his father, Johnny Sr., who was impressed with the campus, though they've visited before.
"Michigan is high on his priority list," Johnny Sr. said. "He's really doing research on Michigan, as we both are. At this time, I guess one of the things is as far as the recruits they look at, what do they really look for. As far as academics, that's what we're going to want to know."
Campbell, who led Cass Tech to a state championship after the starting quarterback went down in the first game of last season, said he is feeling more and more comfortable on campus and in Michigan Stadium.
Campbell and Miggins have both visited campus before and said they intend on visiting in again sometime soon.
"I really like the environment there," Campbell said. "I have a good time up there. Every time I come up there, I know that I'm going to have fun."
