Houma Recaps Michigan Visit

Highland (Utah) FB prospect Sione Houma talks about his trip to Ann Arbor, his decision timetable, and more.

Highland High School's Sione Houma made the long trip from Utah to Ann Arbor today to check in with Michigan, a school that offered him in late May.

"The visit was great," he said. "The stadium was great. The academics were pretty great and I was into it."

Houma played tailback last year at 6'0, 205-lbs and rushed for 1,064 yards, 661 of those coming in three playoff games to end the year. Some schools are recruiting him as a tailback, but the Wolverines and several others see him as a fullback.

"I'd be running, blocking, and catching," he said. "They'd coach me up."

Houma says there is a possibility to play early at that spot for the Wolverines and that does intrigue him.

Currently, he holds other offers from Washington, Utah, and Utah State, and plans to go to Georgia Tech for a camp soon, which may produce another offer.

One of the other key parts of today's visit though, was meeting head coach Brady Hoke and company.

"They're all great people. They all kept up with me and they seem like if I needed something, they could help me."

Houma expects a decision will come before the end of summer, and the Wolverines will be players in that decision.

"They're up there. It's up there," he finished.
