Michigan's blowout victory over Minnesota wasn't a big recruiting event, but there were a few prospects on hand to watch the Wolverines' first Big Ten game of the 2011 season.

One of the more interesting prospects who took in the game was 2013 defensive lineman Austin Bown (Manitowoc, Wis./Manitowoc Lincoln). Not much is out there on the 6-foot-5 defensive end, but Bown was excited to see what Michigan had to offer.

"That was my first time on campus there," he said. "[Michigan] dominated the game, it was a total blowout, but the atmosphere was pretty sweet. I enjoyed it a lot."
