Devin Funchess has been a regular on the Michigan sidelines this year, and was yet again present for the Wolverines trouncing of Nebraska.
"I mean, it was clicking all over yesterday," Funchess told
GoBlueWolverine. "It was there on defense, Denard did good in the
passing game, the defense did a phenomenal job except for a couple plays
and they really beat Nebraska."
The offense put on a show with both Denard Robinson and Fitz Touissant
having big days, and Funchess envisions himself coming in and making an
impact as a freshman.
"I think I can come in and be in there with my athleticism, I can catch the
ball and be in open space and get yards after the catch. I just want to
try and make the team better. I've got to continue to work hard this
offseason and try and gain weight and get bigger. I need to keep my speed
and get up there and practice."
The big recruiting news of the weekend was the presence of five star
running back Bri'onte Dunn, who is currently committed to the Ohio State
"I was talking to him in the beginning before we came on the field and
seeing how he was and getting to know him better, because I've only seen
him one time before that, at the cookout. He's a pretty cool dude. Not
just me, but the whole team would love to have him because of the running
back he is and we could have a future with Bri'onte and Dymonte and we need
to get closer and closer to getting him."
While he doesn't have a gut feel on Dunn, Funchess thinks the switch can be
"Not really, but, I think he's looking towards Michigan and Ohio State, but
as time goes more and more we can get him to switch it up and come to the
Maize and Blue."
Funchess will be present for The Game on Saturday, and he too has an idea
of how the scoreboard will appear as the clock strikes zero.
"Yeah, I'm going to be there. As a team out there, they've got to come out
with the same fire and beat Ohio, so if they continue to work hard it's
easier for us to get commits to come because of the success they see. I
see us winning 35-17."
