VICTOR: Michigan Offer Was 'Surprising'

Coconut Creek (Fla.) High 2016 wide receiver Binjimen Victor talks Michigan offer and more.

Coconut Creek (Fla.) High 2016 wide receiver Binjimen Victor is quickly becoming one of the most sought after prospects from the Sunshine state. He already holds notable offers from Clemson, Florida State and Ohio State, among others.

And just recently, he received another big time offer when Michigan extended a scholarship his way.

"They recruited me for I think a week -- and last week they offered," Victor said. "I didn't know Michigan was even going to look at me. It was surprising."

Victor admits he doesn't know too much about Michigan's program. However, he is well aware of former U-M quarterback Denard Robinson – a former Florida high school star – and what he was able to do up in Ann Arbor.

"That's who they talk about mostly," Victor said on his conversation with the Wolverines. "They call him Shoelace down here. They talk about him."

Victor, who stands at 6-foot-4, 170-pounds, says he is planning on making his final decision sometime during his senior season. While he wouldn't name a leader, he did say there were a few schools sticking out early on in his recruitment.

"I'm not trying to (commit) or anything but the schools I really like right now are Miami, Ohio State, and Clemson," said Victor.

What exactly does he like about the Buckeyes?

"I just watched them and I liked the way they trained," Victor said. "How they run their offense and how they depend on their receivers and everything. I want to visit, as well."

Victor says he is looking for a program that throws the ball and has his desired major.

"Basically, do they throw the ball or not," Victor said. "I've got to see the things I want to (major in) and everything. I'm not for sure yet (but) I may want to do engineering but I'm not sure."

And he made it clear that distance will not be a factor in his recruitment.

"Not really. I'm used to traveling, not traveling like going away from home, but it won't be a big factor for me, I like traveling."
