"That was a live game," he said. "I got down when Notre Dame scored the wide open touchdown, but Michigan did a lot with 30 seconds. It was a great game and a great comeback and I want to be a part of it next year."
Funchess says he watched Michigan's use of the tight end closely, and couldn't help but feel a rush each time Kevin Koger grabbed a reception.
"Koger caught passes, and the passes tonight, they were very important passes. When they completed them, I was excited, because I was picturing me out there."
Another part of the offense Funchess is excited about is the jump balls thrown, something he considers a specialty of his at 6'5.
"When I was there in the spring, they were talking about me splitting out in the red zone, so I'm very excited for that," he explained.
He also wanted to finish with a message to the other recruits considering the Wolverines.
"Come. It's very exciting right now."
