“It was really good seeing Brad Salem,” Zimmer said. “He is an awesome guy and definitely one of my favorite coaches that I’ve met. He is full of energy and everything. …
”He was just telling me to keep working hard to earn that offer. I’m going to train my butt off and hopefully get there soon.”
Zimmer said he is a big fan of Salem’s attitude and how he always is happy.
”I know that he wants me there and he believes in me,” Zimmer said.
While he did not have a chance to visit Michigan State for a game this season – the lone game visit he took was to Northwestern when the Wildcats played Michigan – he said he was paying close attention.
”I was watching every game,” he said. “(Their season) was really good. They definitely had a very, very good season. …
”I definitely will be back up there this summer for camp and a visit. It definitely is one of my top schools.”
”There have been quite a few colleges that have been coming through lately,” he said.
But Zimmer remains waiting for his first offer, which he hopes will come soon.
”I’ve talked to a lot of schools but I’m still waiting for the first one to come,” he said.
