2016 Miami (Fla.) Cooper City senior defensive end Rashad Weaver made the long trek up to Ann Arbor this past week. Already committed to the Wolverines, the visit was an experience that only further cemented his decision.
“It went amazing,” Weaver told The Michigan Insider. “I loved everything about it. Everything from the fields, training facilities, all the resources players have, the academic people available for players when ever needed. I even got to meet with pre med advisors. It was awesome.”
“I don’t think I had just one favorite part," added Weaver. "Everything about it was awesome and I literally can’t choose just one.”
During his extended time on Michigan's campus, Weaver had the opportunity to chat with his future coaches, all of whom were impressed with the physical gains the defensive lineman made this summer.
“I talked to almost all the coaches and they all said about the same thing, how I liked it and they were glad to have me up there finally to see my home,” said Weaver. “They all told me I was looking good and bigger since the last time they had seen me at the camp.
"Lastly, they all said I looked good in the Maize and Blue because I was wearing Michigan gear.”
Weaver says he weighed in at 242-pounds at Michigan's satellite camp in Florida, up 13-pounds on his most recent visit to check out the Wolverines.
Weaver was accompanied by his mother on the Michigan visit and left giving the Wolverines her stamp of approval as well.
“My mom came with me and she loved it as much as me,” said Weaver. “She said that the visit lifted a huge weight off her shoulders and she feels a lot better about her son being 1,300 miles away. I loved it and can’t wait to put on a winged helmet.”
