Stritzinger Feeling 'Love' for DB, Talks U-M

Warren (Mich.) De La Salle 2017 running back Allen Stritzinger updates his Michigan recruitment.

Allen Stritzinger is a do-it-all playmaker for Warren (Mich.) De La Salle Collegiate, starring for the Pilots at running back and corner back. Initially rated a four-star RB, the rising junior is now seeing more opportunities playing defensive back at the next level.

"My eyes are opening up more to the DB position," he said. "At the college level especially you have to see as a running back, there is one running back position and there is four defensive backs positions. It's a quicker way to get on the field. I am really looking into it more and more. I'm starting to feel a little more love for it, the more I play it."

Adding: "A lot of coaches are approaching me and saying they would like me at defensive back. And I'm just starting to grow that love for it. It's a good thing."

Currently, Stritizinger has notable offers from Michigan, Cincinnati and Miami (Ohio), and has been on campus visits to Notre Dame and Michigan State among others.

Stritzinger, who was at U-M's game when they defeated Oregon State 35-7, says his relationship with the Wolverines is strong and plans on coming up for their home finale against Ohio State.

"It's still live," he said of his relationship with Michigan. "The atmosphere there was live. I got a chance to speak with the coaches. There is good things happening there. They are still recruiting me heavily. Even during the season there is a lot going on, and they are still making efforts to reach out to me and I'm making my best effort to reach out to them. They have been getting in a lot of contact with me, and that's what I like the most."

While he's been on multiple visits to U-M's campus, Stritzinger admits he still wants to learn more about what Michigan has to offer.

"I just would like to learn more about the educational staff at Michigan," he said. "The visit I took, it wasn't based on just football. We had a chance to go check out the campus and see different facilities within the school. I would like to get a little better understanding of that part of Michigan."
