Michigan 2014 linebacker commit Jared Wangler – along with the rest of the Wolverine commits -- made his way to Ann Arbor this weekend for his official visit.

"It was great experience," said the Warren (Mich.) De La Salle standout. "We got there Friday night and just left this morning. We had a really good time. We got to know everyone in the class better. We all knew each other pretty well. The whole weekend was fun. We went to the basketball game. We went to the museum. We had dinner up at the press box in the Big House. It was a good time."

In November, fellow 2014 commit Jabrill Peppers announced on Twitter that he would be looking into taking some possible visits. Peppers made his way to Michigan this weekend, and Wangler says Peppers seemed "confident" that he was going to stay committed to the Wolverines.

"We really didn't have to talk to him about (staying committed)," Wangler said. "Right when he got there he seemed very confident that he was going to Michigan. He didn't seem like he was wavering at all. We didn't have a message to come across. He just seemed very excited to come (to Michigan)."

As far as Peppers taking anymore official visits, Wangler said Peppers isn't going anywhere.

"I'm pretty sure he's not taking any more officials," Wangler said. "That's what I heard from coach Roy manning. I'm pretty sure he went and told the coaches he's not taking officials anymore."

The Wolverines also played host to Sugar Land (Texas) Stephen F. Austin running back Vic Enwere. While Enwere is currently committed to Cal, Wangler says he had a strong message to Enwere on why he should become a Wolverine.

"Vic is a good guy," Wangler said. "He stresses good academics. He is committed to Cal-Berkley. Which is a good academic school. Me and Wilton (Speight) were messing with him and telling him, ‘You know Cal, they don't run the ball so much.' And in the pro-style you would get a lot of carries here at Michigan. We were just telling him how good Michigan is and what we like about Michigan. He seemed like he really enjoyed his visit. We all got a long real well."

Wangler separated his shoulder versus Detroit Catholic Central at the end of his senior season. He says he is currently rehabbing the injury and but will not play in the Under Armour game on Jan. 2, in Tampa, Fla.

"I'm doing physical therapy and stuff," Wangler said. "I'm just rehabbing it. I'm not getting surgery or anything. I'm still going down to Florida, I'm not going to play in the game though."
