IL OL David Moosman:"It Doesn't Get Much Better!"

Four-star offensive lineman <b>David Moosman</b> made the trek from Libertyville, Ill. to Ann Arbor Saturday to catch what became a game for the ages. Michigan's 45-37 triple-overtime victory over Michigan State left a favorable impression on the big man.

Offensive lineman David Moosman from Libertyville, Ill. High School left early Satruday morning for four and a half hour drive to Ann Arbor. The late start helped Moosman get some rest after Libertyville took care of business Friday night, scoring a 16-9 first round playoff victory over Mundelein. The 6 foot 4, 260-pound Moosman couldn't have picked a better game, though the Wolverines took their time getting in gear. "It was a great game, it doesn't get much better," he said. "With 110,000 fans it gets pretty rowdy. Michigan started out slow but once they started coming back things got fired up."

The visit was an unofficial trip for Moosman. He'll make his official visit to Michigan on Dec. 10. He will also officially visit Wisconsin on Dec. 3, Iowa Dec. 17, and Notre Dame on Jan. 14. Michigan and Wisconsin are at the top of his list but he said he wants to take all of his official visits before making a decision.

He talked to some of the Michigan players after the game. "I got to chit-chat with (center) David Baas in the locker room a little bit," he said. "I also talked a while with Jake Long and Adam Kraus; we just talked about the game."

Moosman spent the night and briefly visited Sunday morning with Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr. There is a bit of a connection off the field with the Michigan coach. "My mom is from the Upper Penninsula and (Carr) did some student-teaching up there," he said. "So they got to talk about that a little."

He said he may try to take another unofficial visit to Iowa for a game.
