Weber Reflects on Michigan Visit

Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech 2015 RB Mike Weber discusses his latest visit to Michigan, where the Wolverines stand in his recruitment and more.

DETROIT -- Mike Weber made another visit to Michigan earlier this week. This time, the four-star 2015 running back had a chance sit down with the U-M coaching staff and see what their vision is for the Detroit (Mich.) Cass tech standout.

"It was good to get some good information from the coaches far as how I fit the offense," Weber said. "Just building the relationship with the coaches. I was sitting down in the [offensive coaches] talking about not just football but some personal things also. It was a good experience with the coaches.

"Going down there last weekend kind of opened my eyes a lot of how I will fit in their offense. It's wide open, I still got a lot of time left. So whatever happens."

Also during his visit, Weber had an opportunity to hangout with current redshirt freshman and former high school teammate, David Dawson. It was an opportunity for Weber to see what student life is like in Ann Arbor.

"It was just David Dawson who was down there with me," Weber said on his visit. "We just hung out, got something to eat. You know, what we used to do at Cass. So it was kind of cool. It would actually be more cool if I could do it again in college.

"For sure I will be up there [again] for my official."

Weber stated earlier this month that Michigan sits firmly in his top-five, along with Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Tennessee. But at the moment, he admits he has no favorite.

"I'm not really sure," Weber said, when asked who his favorite school is at the moment. "My mind changes every day. I says Ohio State one day is my No. 1. Next day Michigan State is my No. 1. Really it's like playing games with me right now, because I like all of them."

As far as the Wolverines are concerned, Weber admits a lot has changed since the hiring of offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier.

"When Michigan got the commit of Damian Harris, they kind of stopped recruiting me," Weber admitted. "I guess that's what their offense coordinator wanted. So Michigan wasn't really on me like that. So I wasn't really interested in Michigan. But when they fired their offensive coordinator and [Coach Nussmeier] came in, he kind of came straight to Cass and told me how he wanted me.

"So I am back on [with Michigan] now."

In the meantime, Weber is planning on competing in Detroit's Sound Mind – Sound Body camp with something to prove.

"Just to come out here and compete with the best," Weber said. "And maintain my abilities and come out here and have fun."

Look for Weber to announce his commitment during U.S. Army All-American game this January.
