Yesterday GoBlueWolverine talked to Keith Kormanik, assistant coach of All-American defensive end Victor Abiamiri (6-5, 245 lbs., 4.5 in the 40, 3.0+ GPA/1140 SAT) from Baltimore, Md., Gilman (TheInsiders' #48 prospect). Kormanik thought a mid-Dec. Michigan visit had been set. But, as we mentioned on our Premium Message Board yesterday,we thought there was doubt about a Michigan visit, and that 'Michigan hype' regarding his recruitment was premature. That is why we hinted that Abimiri's recruiting was a "mystery" yesterday. So Coach Kormanik told me he'd double-check with Abiamiri regarding his visits at practice yesterday. And this morning this is what Kormanik told us:
"I talked to Victor about his visits for you yesterday at practice. Coach Campbell from Michigan had given us some dates, and I thought Victor would pick one. But yesterday Victor said his mom doesn't know about Michigan. She has reservations about a school as far away as Michigan, according to Victor. So it may not happen, I don't know. He has Miami scheduled for Dec. 13, not Michigan, that's firm."
Yesterday Kormanik also told us that Abiammiri will visit Notre Dame Dec. 6, a West Coast school Dec. 20 (that is up in the air as well), North Carolina Jan. 10, and that he will take an unofficial visit to Maryland, where his brothers play.
