Germany Moving Visit Dates

Pomona (Calif.) DE/LB <b>Eugene Germany</b> hosted Michigan Head Coach Lloyd Carr for dinner Wednesday night. GoBlueWolverine Magazine spoke with the Germany about this visit, and about some changes in his visit plans as a result of the Wolverines West Coast trip for the Rose Bowl.

Pomona (Calif.) High School DE/LB Eugene Germany (Oct. 18 official visit, USC Nike stats: 6-3 1/2, 248 lbs…. 4.65 in the 40, 2.3 GPA, ACT 12/13) hosted Michigan Head Coach Lloyd Carr and defensive backs coach Ron English Wednesday evening. Coach Carr extended an invitation to the talented defensive player. "They said me and Keston (Cheathem) could come to their practice out here on the 20th," Germany said. "I was supposed to visit Tennessee that day so I had to move it up, now I'm going this weekend. I leave Saturday after I take my ACT's and I'll come home Monday night." Germany said he will be making the trip without his parents.

Germany visited Michigan on October 17 for the Illinois game. He said then the experience of seeing 100,000-plus people in the stadium was amazing. Tennessee's Neyland Stadium also has a capacity exceeding 100,000. "I know they won't be playing a game this weekend," Germany said. "But I want to see what another big stadium like that looks like."

Germany's father came along with him on his Michigan visit so this was the first time his mother was able to meet Carr in person. "She really liked him," he said. "He made her feel like he would keep me out of trouble -- they're worried about me being so far away from home but Coach Carr made them feel a lot better about me leaving."

Germany has also made official visits to Washington State (10/3) and Oregon State (10/31) and has one visit remaining. "The USC people want me to take a visit on January 16, but that isn't set up yet." Germany was going to take a visit to LSU on the Dec. 20 but that visit was cancelled. He won't reschedule the visit though he says LSU remains on his list.

He said his list is down to Michigan, USC, and Oregon State and he will announce his decision at the CaliFlorida Bowl game on Jan. 2 in Moorpark, Calif. The CaliFlorida Bowl experience includes a trip to this year's Rose Bowl in Pasadena, where Michigan will take on USC. With both schools high on his list Germany wouldn't let on who he was rooting for. "I'm just going to enjoy the game," he said.

Germany's grades have been a concern but he told GBW he is brining them up and should qualify. More will be known when he receives the results of the test he takes this weekend. As always GBW will bring you the latest reports.
