Before getting to Paul and Hallick ... dispelling any rumors regarding visitor Ronald Johnson. There were no commitments for the weekend, not from Johnson or anyone else. And Johnson was, in GoBlueWolverine's opinion, the one and only visitor that U-M would have loved to get a commitment from on this particular weekend.
Okay, on to Omaha North wide receiver Niles Paul, a 4-star prospect and a Nebraska commitment. GoBlueWolverine spoke to Paul on Sunday afternoon. He told us:
"I did not go to the University of Michigan for a recruiting visit this weekend."
"I'll go over to U-M for a visit; they told me they have a recruiting weekend coming up in a few weeks, I'm not sure exactly when." (GoBlueWolverine note: for the MSU game?)
Does he have a Michigan connection?
"I have an uncle who lives in Ann Arbor, so I just come up and visit him. And he wants me to visit Michigan."
Paul is a Nebraska commmitment, and says:
"I am pretty firmly committed to Nebraska."
Nevertheless, Michigan is recruiting him:
"I'm in contact with Michigan. But it's not all the time; I hear from them every couple weeks."
And GoBlueWolverine spoke to the family of Potsville, Pa. Offensive Lineman Brad Hallick.
"He went to the Michigan game Saturday, yes."
Was it an official visit?
"No. It was not an offficial visit."
So it was an unofficial visit.
"It was no big deal really -- he just decided to go to a game."
