Stepp Gives Perfect Marks Following U-M Visit

The Wolverines hosted a four-star tailback in Indianapolis (Ind.) Cathedral sophomore running back Markese Stepp this past weekend and the talented youngster talks about his trip to Ann Arbor, earning an offer and more.

One of the premiere tailbacks in the Midwest is Indianapolis (Ind.) Cathedral sophomore running back Markese Stepp. The talented runner has been busy the past few months visiting many schools, which has resulted in early Big Ten offers as well as several others. His latest stop was in Ann Arbor, where he got more an amazing experience, but also left with an offer in hand too.

“The overall visit was great,” Stepp told The Michigan Insider. “I just got a good vibe from all their coaches. I got to see all the great facilities and the campus. They also offered me on campus today. I was extremely excited and it just proves that if you work hard, it will pay off. I would say (it was a) 10 (out of 10 visit).”

One of the main coaches the six-foot, 205-pound Stepp got to interact with on his trip was running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley, who he really connected with.

"I got to hang out with the running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley,” Stepp said. “Coach Wheatley is just a really good guy and is always going to be real with you no matter the circumstance.”

After getting to see the campus, talking with coaches and leaving with an offer, Stepp definitely has the Wolverines as a main contender for his services.

“Michigan was one of the schools I wanted an offer from, so I am pretty interested in them,” Stepp said. “I just like the family feel of it and the coaches are great. I have some top schools and Michigan is up there.”
