Detroit Cass Tech 2015 defensive end, Joshua Alabi talks upcoming BBQ visit to U-M and more.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich.—Detroit Cass Tech 2015 defensive end, Joshua Alabi made his way to the Sound Mind, Sound Body football camp last week, and despite not participating he gave the latest on his football recruitment.

Alabi, who stands at 6-foot-4, 260-pounds, plans on visiting Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State and Tennessee, this summer. He noted that he's stayed in contact with the Wolverine coaching staff this past month.

"I got a chance to talk with one of their coaches two or three weeks ago," Alabi said. "I got a chance to talk with him. But that's about it. They're telling me that they really want me and to come down there and visit and see how the campus is."

Alabi said his next plan visit to Ann Arbor will most likely be for Michigan's annual Barbecue at the Big House in July.

"I just want to feel comfortable and talk to the coaches some more," said Alabi, on his next visit to Michigan's campus. "We want to look around and see if we end up going there."

Is Alabi starting to feel more "comfortable" with his Michigan recruitment?

"Yeah, of course," Alabi said. "but I am nowhere near a decision time. So I am just keeping my options open."

Michigan's chief rival, Ohio State will also get a visit from Alabi later this summer.

"I know I am going up to (Ohio State) for their Friday night lights," Alabi said. "I haven't really talked to them that much. But Damon (Webb,) he just tells me about them and everything and stuff. I should be going there soon."

In the meantime, Alabi sayd he planning on having a huge junior campaign where he'll have to play on both sides of the ball.

"Just basically speed and getting off the ball. I got to work on my kick step for offense, because we really don't have an offensive line. We are just working on everything basically."
