WESTERVILLE, Ohio – Carter Dunaway not only came to Nike’s Opening Regional to compete, but to help lure the best prospects join Michigan's 2017 class.

What’s his recruiting pitch exactly? What does he tell fellow top recruits on why they should choose Michigan?

Well, Dunaway says he has method of recruitment. 

 “I talk to them, I want to see where their heads are at, and what other schools they are looking at,” Dunaway said. “I tell them what Michigan has to offer. Cause no other school is like Michigan. They have the education. They have the football program that’s just building, and building and building, and they are not going to find that anywhere else.

 “I almost try to compare to the other schools that the kids are looking at, and just see how Michigan tops those schools.

And on Saturday, Dunaway said his specific plans were to talk to highly regarded 2017 U-M prospects Donovan Peoples-Jones and Ambry Thomas, who both have been on numerous campus visits already.

“Really (recruiting) anyone I know, and that is a fit for Michigan,” Dunaway said.

As far as his on development, at 6-foot-6, 225-pounds, Dunaway says U-M’s plan is still to play him at tight end in college, although he’s open to play the line if asked.

“They haven’t given me any specifics, they still see me at tight end,” Dunaway said. “They still see me at tight end. I’m still talking to Jay Harbaugh all the time. He’s on me right now. I still see myself as a tight end. I think that’s where they see me. Like I said, if they need me anywhere else, I’ll play the line, I’ll put on the weight and everything.”

In the meantime, Dunaway says he has big plans individually as he moves towards his senior season.

“Just get faster, stronger, we got a lot of 7-on-7s going on. We have this camp here and the Michigan camp, maybe some other camps not college specific, but keep working hard and getting ready for the next season,” Dunaway said.
