His Recruiting Story:
Wermers was a three year starter for Crown Point and as a junior, helped the team to a 12-1 record. A fine athlete with mobility for his size, Wermers naturally drew attention from college recruiters.
He attended several junior days and came away with offers from Indiana and Northwestern. UCLA, Iowa, Purdue and the Wolverines would follow suit with offers, UM offered in early March.
He took his time and took visits, even heading all the way out to UCLA. He unofficially visited Ann Arbor four times. He attended the NIKE Camp in West Lafayette and performed well. Finally, in May, he decided enough was enough and pulled the trigger, committing to the Wolverines.
Throughout the times of change in Ann Arbor, Wermers never wavered, telling GBW, "It has always been Michigan, never a doubt in my mind. I remember when everything was announced, my coach asked me if I wanted to look somewhere else and I remember telling him no. It has never crossed my mind."
Wermers finished off his high school career by playing in the Offense/Defense Bowl in Miami, FL.
At 260-lbs, Wermers will certainly have to get in the weight room and add bulk and strength, but other than that, he has the total package. He has outstanding feet and movement skills for a big man. He can get to the second level and does a great job staying under control and keeping his balance. His quickness off the ball and his ability in space should make him a candidate for success in the new offense.
