Offensive lineman Nathaniel Devers (Massillon, Ohio/Washington) has been impressed with Michigan throughout his entire recruitment. But with his visit for the BBQ in the Big House, the Wolverines have solidified themselves even more so as his top school.

“[The visit] keeps Michigan right now at my No. 1 spot,” Devers said. “It was great -- really relaxed, just meeting the coaches and their families. It just made me feel like a part of the Michigan family.”

For the rising junior, he hasn’t just been impressed by Michigan’s football program, though the program’s tradition is very important to him. The academic prestige the University of Michigan offers has been a big draw for Devers.
