deWeaver talks U-M, Army Combine

2016 QB Messiah deWeaver is interested in the Wolverines -- read about it inside

SAN ANTONIO -- Trotwood-Madison (Ohio) 2016 quarterback Messiah deWeaver went to the U.S. Army combine earlier this month with something to prove. And after a strong day of testing, the rising sophomore said came away with a solid performance.

"It's was good," deWeaver said on combine performance. "I improved on my shuttle. I got to a 4.4 on my shuttle. I didn't run my forty time. But I did get a 30 on my vertical."

After leading Trotwood-Madison to two consecutive state finals appearances, DeWeaver says he took his game to another level individually in his sophomore campaign.

"I thought I did good," deWeaver said. "I had a good year last year. I threw for about 2,300 yards. (My sophomore season) I only threw for about 800-yards. I started the whole season. I thought I did real good this year."

At 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, deWeaver currently holds an offer from Louisville. He is also hearing considerable interest from Michigan, Notre Dame Tennessee, Kentucky and Stanford. He has been on some visits to Michigan this past season, and deWeaver admits he has a "high" interest in what the Wolverines have to offer.

"It's real high," deWeaver said. "I like what they are doing down there. I have a lot of other schools looking at me right now They are just one of them. So I will try to look at everybody the same right now."

As far as deWeaver is looking for in a program: "First of all, academics. Things like that. Playing time and if they are producing quarterbacks into the NFL. That's my ultimate dream."
