Tell Michigan fans about the visit.

"It was great, a lot of fun. I flew up from Indianapolis. Jeremy Van Alstyne was my host. Our homes are about an hour apart, but it was the first time I'd met him."

"I got to talk to all the Michigan coaches. It was a good opportunity to talk to all of them. I talked to Coach Carr several times. We talked about baseball a little too -- Coach Carr just wants what is best for all his players, so there is no problem there."

"I also met a lot of guys on the team. I hung out with Jeremy and Matt Guttierrez a lot -- at their dorm, and we went to the movies."
