After his plans to attend Michigan's opener versus Utah in week one were thwarted by inconvenient flight times, Mt. Pleasant, SG Trey Zeigler wasn't going miss a chance to make it to the Big House for a second week in a row. So when it became clear his parents wouldn't be able to accompany him to Ann Arbor, he simply arranged to make the trip with others.
"My dad had a recruit on campus so my parents had to be (in Mt. Pleasant)," said Zeigler. "I actually just brought some friends instead."
Once they arrived on campus, Zeigler & company attended the Michigan Basketball tailgate before eventually making their way over to the game. Upon walking into the stadium he was struck by the magnitude of the event.
"We ate before the game at a nice little cookout," Zeigler recalled, "but the game was amazing! I've never been to a college football game with that many people there. It was crazy."
Zeigler was seen in the stands sporting a Michigan hat, but he warned that those who saw it should not to read too much into it.
"It was hot and I needed a hat," Zeigler explained. "I bought one when I was sitting there in the stands."
Though still not ready to publicly proclaim a leader, Scout.com's #7 SG in the 2010 class indicated that he and his friend Brandan Kearney, once again broached the topic of a future together in Ann Arbor.
"Me and Kearney talked about it a little bit," Zeigler admitted. "It's still a process, but we are definitely thinking about it."
Added Kearney, "We talked about the other players and how good (the coaches) were treating us. But we weren't talking about it that much. I was talking to everybody."
If everything goes according to plan for the Michigan coaching staff, more face to face time for those youngsters, as well as a number of other talented prospects, will occur on campus in a few weeks.
"They they want me to come back down the 27th," said Zeigler. "That's when Darius is supposed to come and Nate Lubick supposed to come too. That's a day we're looking forward to when everybody (including Kearney) is there."
Before that, though, Zeigler will make stops at a few other schools.
GoBlueWolverine will have more on Zeigler in the coming weeks.
