Eugene Germany (Oct. 18 official visit, USC Nike stats: 6-3 1/2, 248 lbs…. 4.65 in the 40, 2.3 GPA) is one of the top linebackers on the west coast. He is rated as the No. 9 player overall player in the Pac 10 region by TheInsiders. He and fellow Red Devil Keston Cheathem recently visited Oregon State. "It was hyped up there for the game," Germany said. "It was a lot like Michigan in some ways, the student section was loud."
Did the trip change things for him as far as his choice of schools? "It's still 'SC and Michigan, always." Germany said.
"(Corvalis) is like a little country town ," he said. "Michigan is in a city and there's a lot more to do and I like that. In a small town you really can't get into trouble."
Germany told GBW earlier he was going to make his decision at the CaliFlorida All-Star game on January 2. He said he's excited about the chance to make his announcement on national televsion.
Germany plays linebacker for the Red Devils but he is projected for the defensive line and has over 100 tackles on the season. His coach, John Brown, is a childhoos friend of Michigan defensive backs coach Ron English. English attended Ganesha High School in Pomona and is responsible for recruiting the west coast for Michigan.
Pomona defeated Baldwin Park 27-11 last Friday and plays Northview this Friday for the Valle Vista League Championship.
