All Smiles for Matt Godin

Commitments were out in full effect for Michigan's first night game at the Big House against Notre Dame. Catholic Central's Matt Godin was among the future Wolverines on hand and he had plenty to say about the atmosphere, his recruitment of uncommitted prospects and an update on his own season.

Michigan played host to plenty of commitments and recruits for the first ever night game in Big House history including Detroit Catholic Central's Matt Godin. When asked where this Notre Dame/Michigan game would rank all time on Matt's list of game's he's attended, the three star commit let his excitement burst out.

"Probably one of the best sights of my life. It even clears up why in a way I chose Michigan. By far the best game I've ever been to, the best atmosphere."

It was almost midnight, eastern time, and Detroit Catholic Central senior defensive tackle Matt Godin had just witnessed something he could be experiencing in less than a year.

"I hope every game is like that when I'm there, I can't wait," a confident Godin explained. "When I was watching the game I wanted to pad up and go play. I was sitting next to James Ross and we were going crazy, we wanted to play. You really can't describe it."

Unfortunately for the two senior commitments they weren't able to be out on the field yet, but that doesn't mean Matt wasn't trying to impact the game.

"I was trying to get everyone going in the recruiting section. Everyone had a smile on their face. It was good to see that they (Michigan) didn't quit."

A part of that recruiting section stood 6'9 five star offensive lineman Zach Banner out of Washington, and Godin had plenty to say about the impression Michigan seemed to have on the Wolverine recruit.

"I hung out with Banner for a while that night, even after the game for about an hour and just chilled. He had a great time. He kept saying how Michigan definitely proved a lot to him. As long as he has a smile on his face, he was having fun, that's a good sign."

After the game Matt had a chance to briefly talk with some of his future coaches.

"I talked to Coach Jackson for a few minutes and then Coach Hoke, Coach Mattison and Montgomery too. They know they have a lot of work to do but they're excited they pulled out that win."

As for Matt's current season, he has four sacks so far and the Shamrock's are 3-0 after a 48-0 victory over Inkster. Matt and Detroit Catholic Central take on 2013 Michigan quarterback commitment Shane Morris and his Warren De La Salle squad in just a few weeks and of course GBW will have full coverage of that.
