GoBlueWolverine spoke to Michigan's no. 17 commitment, running back Brandon Minor, while he was happily celebrating his decision at a post-announcement party.
Why did you pick the Wolverines?
"I picked Michigan because it was the best thing for me in all areas, athletically and academically. They were my team growing up ... I dreamed of going there."
Are you coming in as a running back, or a fullback?
"I'm coming in to play running back."
"I know one of their running backs left. But Michigan was my leader anyway. I've got to work real hard to get ready to come in and help them next season."
Is there anyone that you style yourself after?
"People tell me I remind them of Willis McGahee."
So when did you actually make your decision?
"I actually made my decision about a week and a half ago, when Coach Campbell and Coach Jackson came in to see me. I told them I was coming then."
