deWeaver Believes His Recruiting Will Pay Off

2016 Trotwood (Ohio) Madison three-star quarterback and Michigan commitment Messiah deWeaver reflects on his barbecue experience in Ann Arbor Sunday, who he worked the hardest on to join him with the Wolverines, and who he believes he’s had an effect on.

Michigan brought in several commitments and recruits Sunday for their annual barbecue including 2016 Trotwood (Ohio) Madison three-star quarterback commit Messiah deWeaver.
“It was a good day,” deWeaver said. “Everybody’s family was there; and I’ve been up there a lot so I’ve seen everyone, but it was fun just to see some new things. Some new guys came out, we had some good food and it was just a good day in all; good weather.”
Still two years away from officially arriving in Ann Arbor, deWeaver had an experience on the visit that he says made his Michigan decision feel all too real.
“The favorite part to me was just going into the locker room, the game day locker room,” deWeaver said. 
“The coaches talked about how they get ready before the game, just getting a good mental image of it and it was real official what they were talking about. So that was my best part.”
While deWeaver certainly wanted to make sure he enjoyed his own time during the visit, his next priority was looking to add future teammates.
“The main focuses were Elijah Holyfield, Austin Mack, and Thiyo Lukusa,” deWeaver said. “I talked to everybody but those were the main guys I was around. Oh and Cameron Chambers.”
Does deWeaver believe his overtures are beginning to have an impact their decisions.
“Yeah I think so,” deWeaver said. “I think the visit in general did. The coaches did their thing and I was just sort of helping on the side as another voice in their ear. But from what they tell me they really like it and Michigan is high up on their board, and I’m expecting some commits here. So we’ll see how it goes.”
deWeaver plans to stay in contact with several of the guys in attendance moving forward, even offering up some thoughts on who could be close to committing to Michigan.
“My opinion, I’d say that I think Michigan has the best chance at Thiyo,” deWeaver said. “I think they’ve got a good chance at Ben (Bredeson) too. 
“Cameron Chambers is coming out Friday with his commitment, and I don’t know too well to say if we got him or not; so we’ll just have to see about that. But right now those are the guys. 
“Michigan has always been a good offensive line school so I think we’ve got a good chance with those guys.”
