Michigan hosted two offensive linemen committed elsewhere on Friday with Nebraska commit Dan Samuelson (Plymouth, Ind./Plymouth) and Tennessee commit Dan Skipper (Arvada, Colo./Ralston Valley). Samuelson recently tweeted that he's stressed from the process and doesn't know what to do, while Skipper is finally speaking about his trip to Michigan.

"Michigan has a very good recruiting class, and I really like Coach [Darrell] Funk, so it felt like a good place to visit," he said. "I asked about the role that I would play at Michigan and what they saw if I did go there. I was gauging their interest in me and seeing if I would like it."

Skipper was on the visit with the majority of Michigan's 2013 commitments, which gave him a good look at the type of player Michigan has been recruiting. It was also an aspect of the program he was pleasantly surprised by.
