Detroit Cass Tech 2015 running back Mike Weber is currently working on his speed and running form in his track & field season—with the main purpose to help him on the gridiron come fall.

"Basically speed, I come here for speed to improve the way I run, but my form. Basically just have me set for football," Weber told GoBlueWolverine.

At 5-foot-10, 205-pounds, Weber has offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Syracuse and Illinois. He credits his offer list to the hard work he puts in, on and off the field.

"It just shows that my hard word is showing off," Weber said. "It's just motivating me to get more. To be a better player."

With current Cass Tech teammates David Dawson, Jourdan Lewis and Delano Hill all headed to Michigan next fall, Weber already familiar with the Maize & Blue and was on Michigan's campus for spring practice last month.

"I was at a (spring) practice," Weber recalled on his last visit to U-M. "It just felt like home. I knew a lot of the players there and coaches. It was really cool there. "

Fred Jackson, Michigan's running back coach, has already built a strong relationship with Weber.

"Really, every time I see him he treats me like I am his player, you know," Weber said with a chuckle. "He a good guy. When he comes around to see the school, we just talk to each other about life. We have a good relationship when we see each other."

So does Weber plan on coming back to Ann Arbor anytime soon? The answer is—Yes.

"I will be attending their summer camp," Weber said. "I think that will be the next I will be up there. I might be up there sooner than that."

Weber said he would be visiting Ohio State with his teammate and OSU 2014 commit, Damon Webb . While his visit schedule will heat up this summer, Weber insists there is no early favorite.

"Right now, the schools that standout to me are really I like everybody. Everybody is even right now. I'll just decide later on in the process," Weber said.

Weber said he will focusing on multiple factors when he starts to make more campus tours.

"I'm looking at the atmosphere and the way people act around it," Weber explained. "You know how people are and how they treat each other. The campus, academic side, the whole nine."

As far as a decision timeline, Weber said he weighing his option right now.

"I was hoping I can do it in an All-American game, probably on TV," Weber said. "That would be the best, that's a little more exciting to do. Yeah, but if that don't work out, then probably before my senior year starts."
