Grant DeBenedictis Talks About U-M - OSU

St. Andrews (Boca Raton, Fla) OL and Michigan commit <b>Grant Debenedictis</b> made the trek to Ann Arbor this past weekend and watched his future team beat Ohio State 35-21. GoBlueWolverine Magazine talked with Debenedicits on Tuesday night to get his thoughts on the action.

St. Andrews (Boca Raton, Fla) OL and Michigan commitment Grant DeBenedictis took an unofficial visit to Michigan for the 100th matchup between the Wolverines and Ohio State. DeBenedictis had visited the Ann Arbor campus on several occasions previously, but got a new dose of Wolverine enthusiasm this time. "It was a lot of fun and exciting," he said. "It was even more intense then the other times I'd been there. There was a lot of cheering for the team. I liked that, they were cheering for the team rather than against Ohio State."

DeBenedictis said he has been following the Wolverines every weekend on television and has paid close attention to the offensive line. "The line did really well against Ohio State," he said. "They didn't give up a sack and pretty much shut down the OSU defense."

DeBenedicits said even in all the celebratory mayhem after the game he got a chance to get inside the locker room and talk with some of the players and coaches. He also palled around with one particular Michigan target. "I spent a whole lot of time with Brett Gallimore," he said. "He seemd to enjoy himself a lot. I'll let him speak for himself as far as what he's going to do, but he did appear to be having a good time. When I came up for the Notre Dame game I got to spend the day with him then as well. We talk away from the games too."

The talented lineman will be heading west for the CaliFlorida Bowl game on January 2, will he be making a stop at another bowl game? "We are trying real hard to get tickets to the Rose Bowl," DeBenedictis said. "I'm not sure if the NCAA allows Michigan to provide tickets but we'll get there no matter what."

DeBenedictis will make his official visit to Michigan on December 5. He said he had originally planned on majoring in chemical engineering but is now looking to enter the Michigan undergrad business program.
