Michigan Legacy has U-M High on the List

Michigan fans will fondly recall the amazing exploits of former Wolverine star Butch Woolfolk. Now the second generation of Woolfolk football is about to enter his high school senior season, and Troy Woolfolk of Dulles High School in Sugar Land, Texas is set to make his own mark, and is giving dad's alma mater a serious look.

Being the son of a former college and pro football star has it's advantages and disadvantages. Troy Woolfolk, son of former University of Michigan and NFL running back Butch Woolfolk is now a star in his own right. However, he is not looking to stay in the shadow of his famous father. "I like that my dad is who he is," Woolfolk told GoBlueWolverine Magazine. "But I don't want to be known as 'Butch Woolfolk's son', I want to make my own name."

The young Woolfolk is doing just that has some of the top colleges in the country are keeping a close eye on the talented youngster, including dad's former school. "I'm hearing a lot from Michigan," he said. "They were down here last week, I don't have an offer yet but I'm told it's close. I'll be going up there for camp so hopefully it will happen by then. I'd say Michigan and UT are my top schools."

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Woolfolk reports no offers at this time, but said Texas, Texas A&M, TCU, Utah, Oklahoma, Kansas State, and Michigan State are all showing interest. He attended a recent combine at Texas A&M, and said he will also attend the Texas camp. As far as decision time, he said that depends on the offers he receives. "I would like to have it done before my senior year begins," he said. "My dad is letting me make up my own mind, but every once in a while he'll make a suggestion."

Woolfolk said that while he has been on the Michigan campus several times, there is one hallowed place he has yet to enter. "I've never been in Michigan Stadium," he said. "I want to change that this season. I went to a practice when they were down here for the Alamo Bowl."
