Ojemudia Talks Visit, Other Visitors

2012 Michigan commitment Mario Ojemudia made his way to Ann Arbor this weekend for his official visit. Find out what he has to say about his time on campus, where the Wolverines plan to play him on defense - and what he thinks about Kozan and Grant.

2012 Michigan commitment Mario Ojemudia took his official visit to Michigan this weekend. Despite having been a verbal commit for months now, it was an enjoyable time being back on campus for the future Wolverine.

"It went really well, I hung out with a lot of the commits and a lot of the players," said Ojemudia. "We went to a practice and we went to lunch with the coaches and stuff and we got to hang out with the other football players at night."

Ojemudia was hosted by freshman CB Blake Countess and definitely plans on following in the cover corner's footsteps by getting onto the field as a freshman.

"They (Michigan coaching staff) basically said just keep working hard because they want to see me on the field early," said Ojemudia.

With a chance to spend one on one time with his future defensive coordinator, Ojemudia gained a much greater understanding of where he'll fit into the gameplan.

"I talked to Mattison a lot and he really emphasized what I was going to do," Ojemudia said. "He told me that I would just be like, he would send me on blitzes like everywhere throughout the defense as a stand-up guy."

With the official visit weekend filled with Michigan commitments across the board, there were two uncommitted 2012 prospects, TE Sam Grant and OL Alex Kozan, checking out the maize and blue as well.

"Yeah the tight end and the lineman I know they had a good time, I was with them pretty much all day," said Ojemudia. "It seems like Michigan's really high on them."

Ojemudia had his season come to an end earlier than he and his teammates had intended. After being lauded as the best team in Michigan this fall, Harrison was thumped by eventual state champion Brother Rice.

"It was really hard, I don't want to come up with excuses but we just, that was not our team, we didn't play like we usually do," said Ojemudia. "It was kind of disappointing but you have to learn from it."

With his season and official visit over with, Ojemudia will now look to get his 6'3, 220 pound frame up to around 240 pounds by the time he arrives in Ann Arbor.
