Marquis Maze, from Tarrant, Ala. has given his verbal pledge to the Michigan Wolverines. It didn't take long after his visit to decide where he wanted to play college football. Maze talks of his decision and if his commitment is solid.

"I felt like it was my best choice," Marquis Maze said from Tarrant, Ala. (outside Birmingham). "I really wanted to go to Michigan. I really wanted to play in that stadium."

"I feel like some schools tell you stuff that's not true, but I felt like they were telling me right."

The scatback had an impressive junior campaign as he shared his totals, "Ninety-five carries, 1,109 yards for 19 touchdowns rushing. Nine receptions for 456 yards and three touchdowns. I returned punts for 296 yards and kicks for 300 yards and another three touchdowns. On defense I had 26 tackles, six interceptions and another touchdown."

He stated his verbal commitment is a "10" on a scale of 1-10 as far as solid to the Wolverines, but he states other visits are in mind.

"Yes, I will take my visits," he said. "Probably to Miami, Tennessee, Auburn, Southern Miss and Michigan."

He reports a 4.37 40-yard dash as a fastest time reported over the summer at camp, and his current height and weight stands at 5-9.5, and 163 pounds.

When asked his numbers in strength Maze replied, "I bench 250 [pounds]. We don't squat, so I don't know about that."

Maze may decide to take other visits, but he is completely enthralled with Michigan and a school will have a tough time pulling him away from his commitment.
