He visted Michigan for the Notre Dame, Indiana and Ohio State games (at the ND game, we noticed this striking looking kid, and didn't know who he was -- he looked like a LB ... then at Minnesota there he was again, and we hunted him down ...).

Here is GBW's story from Tuesday afternoon:

Special teams are an area of need for the Wolverines this recruiting year, and the place kicking spot has now been filled a Salem, Ohio kicker Bryan Wright, who was in Ann Arbor at the invitation of Michigan coach Mike Debord, received a phone call from the Wolverine Recruiting Coordinator. "Coach Debord called and offered me a full-ride scholarship," Wright said. "I'm really excited and will probably commit, I just want to think about it for a day and weigh my options."

One of those options is Ohio State. Though the Buckeyes have yet to offer the 6-foot-1, 200-pound Wright, he is waiting for the possibility. "They've been in contact with me though there isn't an offer yet," he said. "I don't think I'll get one but I just want to wait a day or so."

Wright reports a career long field goal of 57-yards. He said he spoke with the Michigan staff on Saturday. "They said I would compete for playing time as a freshman and if I didn't win a job I would redshirt," he said. "I'll do the kicking and kick field goals, no punting."
