One of the top junior prospects on the Michigan's 2017 board is Florence (Ala.) safety J'Marick Woods. The talented youngster received an offer back last spring and visited Ann Arbor during the summer, but took in his first game day experience at the Big House last Saturday. It was a memorable one.
“It was good and really enjoyed everything,” Woods told The Michigan Insider. “The outcome was jaw-dropping though. The stadium atmosphere was electric and the defense was something to watch too.”
The 6-4, 196-pounder already holds a few other offers in Kentucky, Florida and Duke, but has formed a strong bond with the the Wolverine coaching staff. He was able to further that relationship during the visit.
“They were talking to me about how’d I enjoyed it up there and how the atmosphere was going to be electric,” said Woods. “I talked to Coach Wheatley, Coach Partridge and Coach Harbaugh. They were really cool with me when they approached me and like them.”
