QB Steven Threet Grew up a U-M Fan

The University of Michigan may take two quarterbacks in the recruiting class of 2007. Two have been offered, and Steven Threet of Adrian, Mich., High School looks to be getting a serious look from the Wolverines. Threet and his family made the 45-minute drive to Ann Arbor on Saturday to attend the Spring Game, and spoke with GoBlueWolverine.com about the visit.

Texas slinger Ryan Mallett and New Yorker Mike Paulus appear to be the top quarterback choices for the University of Michigan in the recruiting class of 2007. However, the Wolverines told Adrian, Mich., quarterback Steven Threet that they would like to have two QBs in this class. Threet and his family were in attendance at Saturday's final spring practice, and has a chance to talk to U-M head coach Lloyd Carr, and quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler. "They told me they want two quarterbacks in this class," Threet said. "I didn't get an offer because they said they wanted to see me throw live."

Threet reports offers from Indiana, Miami (Ohio), and Georgia Tech. He said that an offer from the Wolverines wouldn't necessarily gain his commitment right away. "I'd have to think about what's best for me, so I wouldn't commit right away," he said. "But I think it would be hard for me to turn down an offer from Michigan."

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Threet said he's been a Michigan fan all his life, with his being mom a U-M alum, and the family having season tickets. "I've been to a lot of games, and we've been up for practices a couple of times," he said. "I'm also friends with Vince Helmuth." Helmuth is a running back from Saline, Mich., and was U-M's third verbal commitment of the year.

Threet's camp plans include a a one-day stop at Michigan. He said he would also attend camps at Michigan State, Georgia Tech, and Miami(OH). "I'm going to go to the Elite 11 (tryout) camp at Georgia Tech," he said. "We're going to get there a day early so we can take a look around the campus and talk to the coaches. I'm also going to the Scout.com combine at Louisville, and the Nike combine at Ohio State."

He added that on Saturday he would attend the Spring Game at Michigan State.
