Michigan Felt Like Home For Silvera

Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage 2018 defensive tackle Nesta Silvera reflects back at his time in Ann Arbor, thoughts on the Wolverines and much more.

Earlier this month, the Wolverines hosted several visitors from Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage that featured some star power in the 2017 class but also featured an upcoming prospect in 2018 defensive tackle Nesta Silvera. The Sunshine State standout discussed his trip to Michigan with The Michigan Insider.

“It was a great visit,” Silvera said. “I was with my teammates Kai (Herbert) and Tedarell (Slaton), we were there all weekend and the coaches were great, especially (Offensive Coordinator/Offensive Line) Coach (Tim) Drevno. We basically saw the everything besides the dorms. It felt like home for us! (Felt like home) because it's a great place with good people.”


The 6-foot-2, 285-pounder got to see plenty of what the Wolverines had to offer, but what stood out the most was their top notch facilities.

“The football facilities because they are the best I've seen so far and I've been to a number of colleges,” said Silvera.

With his visit to Michigan in the books, he’s now very intrigued with the program and where it is going under head coach Jim Harbaugh.

“Very interested,” said Silvera. “I like the direction the program is going in they can only keep moving forward with Harbaugh. He's a very upbeat and energetic coach.”

While Silvera currently doesn’t hold an offer from the Maize and Blue, if one were to come, it would be an offer he would heavily consider, especially knowing his former teammate Nick Eubanks will be there.

“It would definitely be a school to consider because my old teammate Nick Eubanks is up there and my close friend Kai-Leon is considering them,” said Silvera. “They'd shoot up my list. Nick is basically another big brother to me and he tells me Michigan is on its way to win a national championship.”

Silvera has no top list at the moment
