Canteen Enjoys BBQ Visit

U-M 2014 WR commit Freddy Canteen reflects on his visit for Michigan's annual BBQ at the Big House.

Freddy Canteen made his way back to Ann Arbor last weekend for the first time since he committed to the Wolverines in early June.

Canteen, who stars for Elkton (Md.) Eastern Christian Academy, used the opportunity to hang out with future teammates at Michigan's annual Barbecue at the Big House.

"The visit was great!" Canteen said. "I had good time with the rest of the commits, coaches and the rest of the families. It was great."

Ranked the No. 84 wide receiver in the latest 2014 Scout player rankings, Canteen used the visit as an opportunity to bound with fellow receivers Drake Harris and Maurice Ways. He said he was also happy to see the commitment of 2015 WR George Campbell.

"It was very exciting" Canteen said on the commitment of Campbell. "We're always trying to add to the class or to the team I should say. We're trying to get some great dudes to help this team win some Big Ten championships and play for some national championships."

The last time Canteen was on campus he was participating in Michigan's football camp, so this time around he wanted to checkout some of the other things the campus has to offer.

"I got to check out the campus," Canteen said. "I got to talk with all the coaches and sit down and have some 1-on-1 with them. I got to watch some film with coach Hecklinski. I pretty much got to feel everything out before I get to Michigan."

How do the Wolverines plan on using Canteen once he gets there?

"Pretty much they can use me all-around," Canteen said. "He showed me a lot of film on Jeremy Gallon. Pretty much playing the slot, playing outside an d play all-around. They feel they got a great weapon and I feel mutual. I feel that Michigan was the best fit and the best place for me."

In the meantime, Canteen said he will keep working off the field to have a great senior season.

"Pretty much everything I do every day, doing film work, foot drills and everything I do on normal basis."
