Michigan is targeting some top prospects at wide receiver, and the coaching staff got its chance to impress one of the targets in person. Receiver Alvin Bailey (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) took a trip to Ann Arbor for the first time and said the visit boosted Michigan's position.

"It helped them a lot. I was already up on Michigan, but this definitely helped," he said. "I knew some things about them, but being able to see it in person it meant a lot."

Bailey, who is the No. 5 ranked athlete in the country, said the best part of the trip for him was seeing the Big House up close, since he has never seen a stadium that size. After a spontaneous game of pickup basketball with his friends, he got a chance to sit down with the coaching staff to discuss what Michigan has to offer.
