On October 25th when junior U-M commitment Ricardo Miller makes his trip to Ann Arbor for the Michigan State game he will be be accompanied, not only by his friend Marvin Robinson and Marvin's mom, but also by his Orlando Dr. Phillips teammate, super soph athlete Demetrius Hart. Although Hart is only a sophmore, this early-early visit is a good head-start-contact for the University of Michigan to make with this 2011 standout.
Early observations (see his Player Page for video) make it easy to see that the 5-foot-9, 165 pounder (4.5 sec. 40) will be a highly sought after national recruit. On the offensive side of the ball he has dazzled onlookers with his ability to use his exceptional vision to make "ankle breaking" cuts, only to be complimented by his explosiveness and speed -- with the ability to take it the distance on any given touch at either the running back or slot positions.
As dangerous as Hart may be with ball in his hands on offense he has proven to have as much impact on the defensive side of the ball as well. At the cornerback position Hart puts himself in great postion to make plays on the ball, and he has shown the ability to break up the pass or make the interception. Hart has also proven to be strong enough to come up and make solid open field tackles.
Although it's very early in young Hart's recruitment, an early visit to Ann Arbor is a great early hand-up for Coach Rod with this special young future star.
