June set to be a big month for Moorman

Northville (Mich.) offensive lineman talks a few of Big Ten schools he recently visited and where he will be going in the month of June to try and net more offers.

It is barely into April, but David Moorman already knows June is going to be a big month for him.

The Northville junior offensive lineman has a busy camp schedule with many Big Ten teams lined up for the month and figures to be in the mix for more offers.

"My June is crazy," he said. "I'm going to be gone all of June. It kind of sucks a little bit because you want to have fun with your friends at the end of school, but I love football so I'm looking forward to it."

"Come to camp" was part of the message he received when he visited Michigan State last weekend for another trip to East Lansing.

"Coach (Mark) Staten said we know you think we're a good fit for you, we've just gotta figure out if you could be a good fit for us, we've just gotta figure that out," he said. "He said come June 1 and hopefully we will get to see you play and hopefully by then we can see what happens."

The June 1 camp, which is invitation only, will be huge for the 6-foot-5, 275-pound offensive lineman and Michigan State.

"They want to see me perform well there and they will be evaluating me closely and hopefully good things will happen," he said.

It is a message he has been getting from other schools, as well, as he will camp at Michigan, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Illinois in June.

He recently visited Michigan for a spring practice and will be back on campus this weekend for the Wolverines' spring game.

"The contact was good during the season but after the season it was kind of slower as they were finalizing the 2014 class," he said. "As soon as they hired Coach Nussmeier, it has started to pick up more."

The Illini also are in the picture right now and are near the top of Moorman's list after a recent visit to Champaign.

Illinois' commit Dre Brown has been in touch since that visit and trying to recruit him.

"Dre was working on me pretty hard," Moorman said. "He had been talking to me on Twitter a few times before the visit. We are kind of friends now. I think he's trying to get some big boys.

"He's the second commit for the 2015 class and he is doing his part to try to get others to commit."

Moorman is planning on making a decision by "hopefully late August, early September."
