At media there was word floating around that scatback Marquis Maze was about to come up to Ann Arbor for a visit.
There seemed to be intrigue about the tough, speedy little 5-8, 175 pound back from Birmingham, Alabama, Tarrant, either as a running back or a kick returner.
Now GoBlueWolverine has confirmed it -- he did come to Ann Arbor this past week with his mother, he was offered, and last night he gave Michigan his verbal commitment!
Maze will be a running back/athlete in the Mike Hart (albeit faster)/Mister Simpson mold -- newly in vogue at Michigan!
As a junior running back, Maze rushed for 1,109 yards and 19 touchdowns (11.6 yards per carry). He also ran for three touchdowns on returns.
