After watching his recruiting train pick up significant steam in recent months, Detroit Catholic Central standout Matt Godin is about ready to bring it to a halt. All that's left now is to get one last look at a few of his favorites.
The Badgers scored major points with Godin during a strong junior day visit in February and during regular correspondences in subsequent weeks. Those interactions have revealed a plan that the talented youngster finds quite intriguing.
"At Wisconsin the people around there are great people," he said. "They are telling me I can come in and play right away as well. When they told me that I would play where J.J. Watt played, obviously my eyes kind of lit up."
Michigan State has a different vision for the three-star lineman, but it is also is one he can see himself fitting into quite easily.
"Michigan State wants me at D-tackle actually," Godin stated. "It is something that I would be open to because I play it right now."
The last team in the top three is childhood favorite Michigan. Godin's lifelong affinity for the Maize & Blue is far from secret, but the Wolverines haven't let their hopes of landing him rest on that distinction.
"They're coming to my school next Tuesday," he reported. "(The recruiting attention coming from them) is good. We Facebook a lot. They message me and see how it is going and I also get handwritten letters and all that."
Michigan's case has been further bolstered by its recent recruiting success, especially by the news of Royce Jenkins-Stone's commitment.
"I did not know that was coming," Godin admitted. "I was pretty surprised. He's a top player - top of the line. When he commits it is definitely going to get attention of all the players."
For his part, Godin isn't quite ready to announce his own decision. He insists, however, that the day when he will be isn't that far away.
Said Godin, "(An announcement will take place) in three to four weeks at my school in a press conference."
