ORLANDO, Fla. -- Michigan four-star offensive lineman commit Ben Bredeson is rated the number one offensive guard in the country and he will be able to prove his high rankings during the Under Armour All America game this week.
It's something Bredeson has worked hard for all season and, now that he's in Orlando, it doesn't mean the hard work doesn't stop. In fact, he's looking forward to seeing and playing against talent that are headed to the next level.
"I've been working real hard just trying to get ready for the game," Bredeson said. "Being able to cap off high school and competing against the best guys in the country that you've been reading about all the time. Especially playing with guys that you're going to play against and some guys you're going to play with in college, it's just really exciting and I'm really looking forward to it."
Other than recruiting for U-M, Bredeson has one strict goal in mind that he wants to accomplish during the week-long event.
Just have fun.
"Just have as much fun as I can possibly have," Bredeson said. "It's going to be a highlight of my life, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity so soak it all in and enjoy it."
Bredeson will join the Wolverines in the fall with the rest of his 2016 recruiting class that currently ranks number one in the nation. Now that his high school career will be over once the Under Armour game concludes, he is working hard every day to be ready once fall camp rolls around.
"I'm working out every day," Bredeson said. "I've got a trainer, he and I work out and one of my football coaches is going to help me with the football aspect. Learning technique, reviewing the pass sets and all that kind of thing."
Bredeson says that nothing is in the works in terms of visiting campus though he knows a trip back will be in the schedule eventually.
"Nothing in the works right now," Bredeson said. "I'll probably be back at some point soon. I don't know what's going on right now, there might be an event that I'll swing out there for. We'll see how it goes."
