Victor on Michigan: “They Brought It”

Michigan had one chance to impress Coconut Creek (Fla.) junior wide receiver Binjimen Victor enough to become a factor in his recruitment. It was after he visited the Wolverines for the first time yesterday that they had most the most of their opportunity.

After dominating the Sound Mind Sound Body camp and showing why he’s one of the best players in the South, Coconut Creek (Fla.) junior wide receiver Binjimen Victor traveled over to Ann Arbor to check out the program and spend more time with the new coaching staff.

“It was good and I had a great time,” Victor told The Michigan Insider. “I saw the campus, the stadium, and talked to Coach Harbaugh and other coaches on staff.  It was a great time. They also had a pretty cool stadium, which I liked too.”

The lanky 6-4, 174-pounder has seen it all during his visits to various campuses, but what stood out to him the most while at Michigan was their wall of wins.  The museum display features a football for each of their wins in their prestigious history.

“Their ball collection of every win was pretty cool to me,” said Victor. “I had no idea they had that many wins and I didn’t think they would put that many balls up there like that (laughter). It was pretty big.”

With offers from the likes of Florida, Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Tennessee amongst many others, the four-star wide out has talked to some of the top coaches in the nation, but that didn't dim the excitement he felt while chatting with Jim Harbaugh.

“He is a pretty cool guy,” said Victor. “I haven’t met him before, so it was my first time meeting him and he was very cool and I had a great time talking to him. Basically, his message to me was him getting the chance to recruit me and to come play for Michigan.”

Going into the visit Victor wanted to see what Maize & Blue had to offer and if they would bring it to the table.  After the visit it was clear that they did.

“I’m pretty interested now in Michigan," said Victor. "I’m wide open for everybody, so I’m just giving everybody a chance and see what they've got. I canceled my top four and basically I am wide open to everybody. I’m just opening up to everybody and giving everybody a chance. I want to see what schools bring to the table and basically show me what they got. (Michigan) brought it to the table, so I like them.”
