“[Michigan] had told my coach,” Sidney recalled. “And I had left for Las Vegas. So [Michigan reached out] on Twitter and found me. But it was a big shock. It meant a lot to me. I want to check it out up there.”
Sidney, who has never been to Michigan before, says he would like to visit U-M sometime this summer. “I just want to see the facilities up there,” Sidney said. “See the coaches staff and try to build a relationship with them,” Sydney said. “I just want to see what Michigan is all about.”
Currently, Sidney holds double digit offers, however, he says no school is leading for his services. He was adamant, however, that he would like to continue his relationship with Michigan.
“I am considering every [school] still,” Sidney said. “I am still open. I am still looking at all the options. Know that Coach [Jim] Harbaugh is up there right now. He’s a good coach and I would like to get up there and talk to him and build a relationship with him, and see how it goes.”
That being said, Sidney did admit who was recruiting him the hardest.
Sidney recently attended USC’s junior day. He says he also plans on visiting Washington and Notre Dame in the near future.
In the meantime, the five-foot-11, 165-pounder is focused on having an outstanding senior season.
“I am just trying to play with the best people out there to try to improve my talent,” Sidney said. “The best competition I can. And just work on the little things that I need to improve. Just my technique and get my technique sound.”
Sidney is planning to announce his commitment at the annual U.S. Army All-American Bowl this January.
