Hamler Looking Hard at Michigan

Orchard Lake (Mich.) St. Mary’s 2017 wide receiver K.J. Hamler talks Michigan interest, what an offer would mean to his recruitment, his thoughts on a visiting and more.

MCCOOK, Ill. -- While no offer has been made, Orchard Lake (Mich.) St. Mary’s 2017 wide receiver K.J. Hamler continues to build his relationship with the Michigan coaching staff.

"I went up there for a visit a few weeks ago for their spring practice," Hamler said. "It was pretty good and intense. Coaches told me they want me to come up to the one day camp and see what I am like. They want me to come up there to visit more to see how my character is. Just to get along with me and stuff like that."

Currently, Hamler holds notable offers from Michigan State, Louisville and Cincinnati among others. Although, he was adamant that he one day could earn an offer from Michigan.

"I think I can. I think I can pull it off," Hamler said. "I am confident in myself. I just have to do what I do up there and trust my god given abilities. I need to go out there and ball out."

An offer from Michigan would go a long way his recruitment, Hamler says.

"It would actually mean a lot," Hamler said of a potential U-M offer. "That is one of the top schools in the country. I would love to be part of them. My parents always tell me to go with academics first. [Michigan] had good academics and I love that about them. I just need to get more attached to them. get in more contact with them and get to know them better."

Next up, Hamler says he'll visit Michigan this Saturday for its annual spring game.

"I want to see intensity," Hamler said. "I want to see competition. I want to see no plays off. You got to go hard or go home every time. Like some players up there, Jabrill Peppers, Jourdan Lewis, probably one of the best ones on the team. They're physical, they don't care what you think. They are going to go out there and ball out."

Hamler has already been on visits to Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame. He says he plans on visiting U-M, West Virginia, MSU, USC and UCLA in the near future.
