Motz Recaps Michigan Camp Experience

2017 St. Johns (Mich.) linebacker Tanner Motz discusses his time at Michigan’s camp this summer, plans for visits this fall, and more with The Michigan Insider.

With Michigan’s 2016 class close to being full, the Wolverines’ coaching staff has started the process of assembling a game plan for 2017.

With Brother Rice tight end Carter Dunaway getting the ball rolling as an in-state commitment for Michigan, other targets are beginning to emerge.

A prospect that has caught the attention of several BCS programs including Michigan is St. Johns (Mich.) junior linebacker Tanner Motz.

“I went to their camp and really liked the facilities,” Motz told The Michigan Insider. “I also liked the energy the coaches bring. I did good in the one on ones and the coach talked to me during drills.”

“If they offered me, I would consider them,” added Motz. “They are a Big Ten school that’s close to home, so I’d definitely give it some consideration.”

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound linebacker currently holds an offer from Toledo, but that number could increase with new interest coming in seemingly by the day.

“My recruitment is going good,” said Motz. “I have talked to a lot of coaches at camps, who have shown interest and I’m getting quite a few letters.

“I’m getting stuff from Michigan State, Toledo, Tennessee, Oregon, Notre Dame, Central Michigan, Ohio State and Stanford.”

Motz style of play could be described as physical and someone not afraid to make the big hit, eager to improve in several other areas this season.

“I play smart and fast and stop the run well,” said Motz. “I’m still working on becoming quicker and faster and more explosive and powerful.”
