All-American linebacker Fred Sparkman (Dec. 13 official visit, 6-1, 216 lbs., 4.6 in the 40, 3.6 GPA/19 ACT) from Columbia, Tenn., Central just returned from his Michigan visit. Here's what he told yours truly.
"I had a great time. My host was Wilis Barringer. What did we do? We went to the basketball game, but we didn't stay long ... not even all of the first half. My favorite part of the visit was talking to Coach Herrmann. And I talked to Coach Carr too. Coach Carr asked me how I liked the school, and how I liked the players I hung around with during the visit. He said I had a scholarship waiting, and that since this was my first visit it was fine for me to visit other schools and compare them."
What other visits do you have scheduled.
"North Carolina January 10th and Arkansas the 17th. But I probably won't take them both -- just North Carolina. And it'll be between North Carolina and Michigan."
Sparkman May Be Down To Two
