DEARBORN, Mich. – Running back prospect Mike Weber is one of the top prospects in the state of Michigan for the 2015 class. He already has notable offers from Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State, to name a few.

But the interest doesn't stop there, as the talented runner is starting to generate interest nationally, too.

In June, Weber went on a road trip to the University of Alabama with the rest of his Detroit Cass Tech teammates, as the they played in Tides' 7v7 passing tournament.

"It was real nice down there," Weber said. "We went down there and competed and won. The atmosphere was nice. I met a lot of players that I seen over the internet and stuff like that. It was cool to see everybody out there playing hard. We just went out there and fun."

While Weber didn't earn an offer on the trip, he said the Alabama coaching staff has taken notice and will be keeping an eye on him moving forward.

"They got my information and stuff," Weber said. "Really, they weren't showing me that much interest. But they say they will. I'm just taking it all in."

This month Weber will be back in Ann Arbor for Michigan's annual Barbecue at the Big House.

"I'm just ready to go out there and see all the coaches again," Weber said. "I want to go out there and see all the top prospects and kick it with them and eat. Just see all the coaches again and see how they have been. I just want to go out there and talk."

Weber, was offered by the Wolverines' at the end of his sophomore season. He said he stays in consistent contact with running backs' coach Fred Jackson.

"We just had a little conversation recently," Weber said. "We just talked about life. It wasn't football related, though. I was just calling him to check in with him. I am getting real comfortable with Michigan right now. I still got a long way to go. I am really just taking my time with it."

Next up for Weber is a visit to Tennessee this weekend with some teammates.

"I am going to Tennessee this weekend. Tennessee has been on me a lot. A offer should be coming, I hope so."
