The Michigan Wolverines just picked up another ally to help them in their pursuit of Detroit Southeastern wideout Fred Smith. The Maize & Blue already had Smith's family putting in a good word. Now new running back commitment Sam McGuffie has joined the party.
"He just called me," Smith told GoBlueWolverine earlier this afternoon. "He was talking about how (Michigan) had a real good recruiting class. He said he thinks I should come to there with him."
Today's conversation marked the first time the two coveted prospects spoke to one another. After a Smith's favorable first impression of McGuffie, chances are they will chat again in the very near future.
"That was my first time talking to him, but I had seen his tape so I knew who he was," Smith said. "He said he had seen my tape too. I was just telling my brother that (McGuffie) seemed real cool. He seems like somebody I could vibe with. He's got a bunch of flavor!"
Smith's impression of McGuffie's highlight tape was just as glowing.
"He was cold in the tape I saw," Smith exclaimed! "He was jumping over people's heads and stuff!"
GoBlueWolverine will have more on Smith in the coming days.
