Video interview by Sam Webb
Michigan recently extended an offer to 2018 quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson (Bishop Gorman HS). After the offer, Thompson-Robinson made an appearance at Michigan's Los Angeles satellite camp to get a look at the coaching staff to see what they have to offer.
After enjoying his time around passing game coordinator/wide receiver coach Jedd Fisch, Thompson-Robinson also likes head coach Jim Harbaugh as well.
"He's a cool dude and a down to earth guy," Thompson-Robinson said of Harbaugh. "I feel like I could be coached by him in a couple years."
If Thompson-Robinson's recruitment were to go the Wolverines, it would be because of a small feather in its cap that was already established. His mother went to Michigan and, naturally, was very excited when the young signal-caller received the call from the Wolverines.
"I was actually in the car with my mom when I got it," Thompson-Robinson said. "She was so happy she almost crashed the car. It was a really fun time. I was really happy I got that one."
Despite the U-M connection, his mother will not be pressing her son to go to U-M.
"She would love it if I went to Michigan but she hasn't pushed me to go there or make a decision," he said.
The offer to Thompson-Robinson is a little bit of a change of pace for the Wolverines. Since U-M has offered a long line of pro style quarterbacks, he has the speed and intangibles for a spread offense.
However, the style of offense will ultimately not be a deciding factor for him.
"It doesn't really matter," Thompson-Robinson said. "I know a lot of schools are moving to a pro style, it doesn't really matter where I go."
Right now, UCLA, Michigan and Arizona State are offers that are sticking out to him. With family all over the country, distance will not be a factor in his recruitment.
