Dwumfour Looking to Camp at Michigan

2016 DePaul (N.J.) Catholic defensive lineman Michael Dwumfour saw his junior season get off to a slow start, still putting together an impressive year. Dwumfour discusses the recruiting process, his plan for visits, and more.

For 2016 DePaul (N.J.) Catholic defensive lineman Michael Dwumfour, his junior season didn’t exactly begin as planned.

“Despite having to sit out four games because of transfer rules I think my junior season went very well,” Dwumfour said. “I didn’t think I would’ve played that well but I helped my team out in a lot of areas.”

Still managing to finish the year with 46 tackles and 4.5 sacks, Dwumfour is beginning to attract some recruiting attention.

“I’ve heard from Wake Forest, Rutgers and Maryland,” Dwumfour said.

Standing just shy of 6-foot-3, 265-pounds, Dwumfour is the teammate of 2016 defensive end Quayshon Alexander.

With Alexander currently holding a scholarship offer from the Wolverines, Dwumfour is hoping to attract the attention of Michigan moving forward as well.

“During the season Roy Manning took down my information cause he was at one of our practices,” Dwumfour said. “But now that he’s not there I haven’t really heard anything from Michigan but the defensive line coach at Michigan followed me on twitter.”

Michigan was in DePaul Catholic last week. Although Dwumfour admits he isn’t overly familiar with the program in Ann Arbor, he does have a general understanding of some aspects of the Wolverines.

“I know one of my favorite players went there, LaMarr Woodley,” he said. “I know they’re rivals with Ohio State.”

Looking ahead toward the spring, Dwumfour plans to get out and take some visits, including a stop at Michigan where he’ll look to prove himself to the staff.

“I’m taking a visit to Maryland for a junior day in two weeks and I’m going to Wake Forest for spring football,” he said.

“Hopefully I’d like to go to Michigan football camp for them to see me,” Dwumfour added.
