Saturday night was quite the experience for so many fans, players, coaches and recruits. For the recruits it was a time to soak in all that the University of Michigan has to offer if they should so-choose to play for the Wolverines. Class of 2015 offensive lineman David Moorman doesn't have a U-M offer yet, but it is clear the Wolverines are very interested in his services.
"I had a chance to speak with the coaches including Coach Funk," Moorman told GoBlueWolverine. "He is great to talk to. He has coached some good offensive lineman, and he knows what he is talking about. He talked about how they are only recruiting a few offensive linemen in my class, and how they are interested in me and will continue to look at my junior film. They want me to stay in contact with calls and coming up to games as much as I can."
Moorman had a firsthand account of the Michigan experience as he choose to get to the game a little earlier to take it all in. What David saw was something that was impressive to him -- during the whole day and night that he was in Ann Arbor.
"I came to the game a bit early," he said, "and it was really nice walking around and how great the atmosphere was before the game. It was unreal as we started coming down the tunnel before the game -- just an unreal feeling. That was the first time I had been to a game like that before. It was great to see how passionate the fans are. When we were walking past the student section they knew our name; that was nice. I really had a good time up at Michigan."
David also had a chance to rub shoulders with some of the other recruits that were at the game. He had the opportunity to speak with them, and they all seemed to have a good time.
"All the recruits were just really good guys. I was very impressed with them. We were all walking up to each other to talk, and having a good time. I had a chance to speak with DeShawn Hand, Mike Weber, George Campbell and Mason Cole -- they were all good guys. There were a lot of guys really working on DeShawn Hand -- Drake Harris was really over there recruiting. It was a lot of fun being with those guys."
For now Moorman just needs to continue to work hard and stay in contact with the coaching staff. He certainly could be one of those linemen that Michigan ends up offering in the class of 2015.
