Cass Tech junior lineman Joshua Alabi knows his top five schools and he knows why they are there.
Alabi broke down what he likes about each school:
Tennessee: "I really liked their coaching staff, the defensive line coach, I liked the head coach. Everybody is cool down there, it's like a family."
Ohio State: "I like Coach Vrabel. He seems like a coach that will work you and get you to the next level and that's where I want to be."
Michigan: Michigan, that's a home school. Who wouldn't want to play for Michigan? If I wind up there, it would be a blessing."
Michigan State: "With Jayru Campbell, he just committed there so I wouldn't mind going there with me, Mike and Jayru. We were planning on all going to one school, so that could work out."
Alabi and the Technicians running back Mike Weber recently visited Tennessee and he said the Vols lead for their services currently.
"Me and Mike, we liked Tennessee," he said. "That's our number one, but our number two is both Michigan State, so it's kind of like even. … We were planning on going to Tennessee's first night game, so whenever that is."
Alabi, Weber and Campbell recently visited East Lansing, when Campbell committed.
"It was a pretty nice visit," Alabi said. "I got to talk to a lot of the coaches, saw a lot of the players and watched them practice.
"It wasn't anything new or nothing different. I had been up there before, so it was basically the same thing. I like the coaching staff, I like the facilities and stuff so it was a nice visit."
He said he will visit Michigan State again during the season. He was scheduled to go to Michigan for the Wolverines' season-opener against Central Michigan on Saturday.
