Will Germany Make it to Michigan After All?

In a stunning turn of recent events, a major recruiting target from the Class of 2004 who broke the hearts of many Michigan recruiting fans when he signed with USC last February, is ready to follow his true dream and become a Wolverine.<br><br> GoBlueWolverine Magazine had an <b>exclusive interview</b> with the recruit Wed. night.<br>

Eugene Germany was supposed to start his college career at USC this winter term, but he did not.

GoBlueWolverine talked to Germany Wed. night, and Eugene said his coach, John Brown, is in contact with the Michigan and things are in motion for the Pomona High School star to come to Michigan after all. "I always wanted to come to Michigan," Germany said. "My family wanted me to stay close to home, but things didn't work out the way I wanted and I want to go ahead and go to Michigan now."

Germany said he was unsure which position he will play at Michigan, should be end up in the Winged Helmet. Reports were that he was unhappy with the fact that USC was contemplating moving him to tight end. Germany maintained during his recruitment the he wished to play on the defensive side of the ball.

Recruiting fans will remember that Germany was one of the main targets for the Wolverines last year. His size, coupled with his 4.7 speed in the 40, made his loss to USC, with whom he eventually signed a letter of intent, all the worse.

Academics were reported to be a factor in Germany not enrolling at USC in the fall. As such he retains all of his eligibility. "I'm eligible now," he said. "I got a 940 on my SAT and have a 2.4 grade-point-average. I won't come in until this fall."

Germany said he is working out to stay in shape until things work out.
