ANN ARBOR -- David Moorman is a busy young man. The 2015 offensive lineman out of Northville (Mich.) high school spent Father’s Day weekend competing at Sound Mind Sound Body in Southfield and now heads off to a church retreat this week near Traverse City.
But before heading up north, Moorman made a quick trip to Ann Arbor Sunday to compete on the opening night of the Michigan football camp, working closely with Wolverine assistant, Darrell Funk.
“It was awesome,” Moorman told GoBlueWolverine. “I talked to him on the phone a couple of times but it was really good to get here and work with him for about an hour. It was a fun way to get used to Michigan and get used to him coaching.”
Projected as either a guard or tackle at the next level, Moorman played guard as a freshman for the Mustangs before moving outside to tackle his sophomore season. Whatever position Moorman eventually lines up at, a physical, run blocking mentality will follow him, something that stood out about his experience Sunday night with coach Funk.
“He really puts a lot of emphasis on run blocking which is nice because at my high school we’re a run blocking team,” said Moorman. “It was really fun to do some of the drills that Michigan guys do and get his views on running schemes and stuff like that.
“I like to pancake guys.”
Moorman’s penchant for pancakes started around middle school when he says he became a huge fan of Big Ten football and the physical brand of football it entails.
Holding offers from Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan so far, Michigan hasn’t pulled the trigger with a scholarship offer just yet, but Moorman can already see the bond growing between he and the Wolverines.
“This is my first time being here and talking to them in person besides Sound Mind Sound Body,” said Moorman. “It’s a pretty new relationship with them but I’m really enjoying it so far and hopefully I can keep building on it the next couple of years.”
Moorman doesn’t plan to slow down his summer schedule once he’s back in town later in the week, working on visits to Eastern Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Michigan State, and a return trip to Michigan in the near future.
With two years remaining on the prep level and several scholarship offers still to come, Moorman already has a good gauge for what he’ll be looking for when decision time rolls around.
“I just want a school that can give me a good education,” he said. “I want to pursue a business degree so the business school is everything. But also, I want to play for a coach I really like and I can get along with the next four years. I just want to play for a team that wants to win championships.”
