GoBlueWolverine earlier reported that Christian Brothers (Memphis, Tenn.) DE Corey Mills (6-4, 260 lbs., 4.8 in the 40, 3.3 GPA, 21 on the ACT) will be making an official visit to Ann Arbor this coming weekend. GBW spoke with Mills Tuesday afternoon and he confirmed the report. "Yes, I will be going to Michigan with my mom this weekend," he said. "Coach Herrmann is recruiting me and he was here last week. Coach Sheridan is coming down tomorrow (Wed.)." He said he's already had in-home visits from Memphis, Florida and South Carolina.
He said he talked earlier in the season with Michigan Head Coach Lloyd Carr and was extended a scholarship offer.
Mills is a highly sought after defensive player who plays a little bit of offense, but has no desire to play on that side of the ball in college. "I hate offense," he said, firmly. "All schools are recruiting me for defense." The list of schools recruiting Mills includes Mississippi, Florida, South Carolina and Memphis. Does the hometown school hold an edge? "No, not at all," Mills said. "I really don't have a leader at this point. I'll visit Ole Miss on Jan. 9, Florida on Jan. 16, and Memphis on Jan. 23." Mills wasn't certain about a fifth visit.
Mills told TheInsiders that Ole Miss is recruiting him the hardest and told GBW he would wait until all his visits were finished before making his decision.
He said he's never been to Michigan and really has no idea what to look for. He said he's going up with an open mind and will just take in whatever the Wolverine staff has to show him. He said he is looking for a school with a good track program as he throws the discuss and competes in the shot put. He said he's undecided as to a college major.
Christian Brother finished the season 9-2 following a 28-14 loss to Brentwood Academy in the state semi-finals. Mills didn't have his complete stats but said he finished the regular season with 72 tackles including 17 for loss, eight sacks and one interception.
