Stritzinger Relfects on Michigan Visit

Warren (Mich.) De La Salle 2017 running back Allen Stritzinger talks Michigan and more. Read inside

Warren (Mich.) De La Salle 2017 running back Allen Stritzinger was one of many top prospect who came to Michigan on Saturday to check out the Wolverines for their annual spring game.

And after watching Blue defeat Maize 7-0 in a low scoring affair, the rising sophomore came away with a positive feeling after his visit.

"It kind of went as expected," Stritzinger said. "I got to speak with Coach Wheatley again. We went over a few things like when we were at my school, but we got a little but more further into detail. He was able to speak with my dad and stuff like that. Just being at the game was a good feeling overall."

Adding: "This year it seemed a little more intense, fans were a lot more into it. It was more exciting that it was in the past. Seeing Shane Morris play, being an alumni of De La Salle it was nice seeing him do his thing out there. You could see a good transition from years ago."

Being able to talk and build his relationship with Wheatley this past month, has given Stritzinger a sense of a comfort with Michigan already, he says.

"Just how they approached me and spoke with my dad with no problems," Stritzinger said. "We really didn't want to interrupt while everyone else is doing their thing. But they came to us, which showed me that they wanted to talk."

Wheatley made it a point that intends on recruiting Stritzinger strictly as a running back.

"He is really high on the running back side of the ball," Stritzinger said. "He said he seen the little clips from Chicago. He says he know I can play [both ways]. But he wants to me to play running back here. And I'm absolutely fine with that."

Currently, Stritzinger has notable offers from Cincinnati, Toledo and Boston College. He also says he intends on taking a unofficial visit to Michigan State this Friday.

As far as Michigan, Stritzinger says he plans on coming back to U-M to camp this June, and hopefully earn an offer.

"I feel like that is very possible," Stritzinger said of a U-M offer. "It's very possible that can happen. They want me to keep more contact than I have before with them. So that's just a good sign there."
