Alabi Talks 'Bama, Tennessee and U-M

Detroit Cass Tech 2015 DL Joshua Alabi talks about his trip to Alabama, his thoughts on going down south, his upcoming trip to Tennessee, Michigan's BBQ and more.

Detroit Cass Tech 2015 defensive lineman Joshua Alabi took a trip with his Cass teammates last month to the University of Alabama. While he didn't receive an offer from the Tide, he said enjoyed his overall experience in SEC country.

"It was alright," Alabi said. "It was a good experience. There was lot of competition down there and we had fun. I talked with a lot of the coaches (at Alabama.)"

While he enjoyed his camp experience in Alabama, Alabi says Tuscaloosa is a little too far from home for his standards.

"Technically, I really don't like down south schools," Alabi said. "I like Alabama. I like Tennessee. The contact (with Alabama) is really not that big. I'm really trying to stay up north."

Currently, Alabi has offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Nebraska, Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee and Akron. He will be taking a trip to check out the Vols' this weakened.

"I could consider Tennessee," Alabi said. "I just want to talk with the coaches. My coach said to talk with the coaches and stuff like that."

Later this month Alabi will attend Michigan's annual Barbecue at the Big House.

"I just want to have fun," Alabi said with a laugh on his upcoming visit to Michigan. "I just want to chill really."

"Yeah, I am feeling more comfortable (with Michigan.) But like I said, I open to everybody right now."
