Michigan Courts Son of Legacy

A former Wolverine great has passed on his athletic genes to a member of the 2010 recruiting class, and it's no surprise there is some heavy Wolverine interest.

Jewone Snow is more than likely looking to set his own name in lights, instead of being known as Garland Rivers' son. He's getting his chance now as a 2010 prospect from Canton McKinley High School in Ohio. Recently, he dropped in on his father's alma mater for the Maize and Blue's junior day and subsequent spring practice.

"It was great. I liked the intensity. I liked all of the player's effort, the campus, the Big House… I just liked the whole environment," Snow recalled for GoBlueWolverine.

The coaches definitely took notice of Snow's presence, and acknowledged him with some serious face time. While no scholarship offer has been extended to Snow, the coaches are preaching patience.

"I talked to a couple coaches with my dad and my coach. They said they're going to contact me real soon, and to just be patient and wait (for a possible scholarship offer)."

If and when the said scholarship should find its way to Snow, the Wolverines would certainly cement their place in the top tier of schools vying for Snow's services.

"People are saying they have an advantage of getting me, and you know what, they probably do. I'm kind of a Michigan fan. I like O-State too, but I like Michigan more. I don't think I'd commit right away, but I'd consider it big time. I haven't really thought about when I want to commit."

Should he decide to pledge his allegiance to the Wolverines, they certainly know where they'd like to get him lined up on the field. It's something they've already discussed with him.

"Pretty much like every other school, they're telling me I'd be playing middle linebacker."

It won't take long for Snow to make the return trip to Ann Arbor to check out the Wolverines again. He'll be in for this year's much anticipated spring game, which is turning out to be quite the event. He'll even be bringing a friend.

"I plan on going to spring game on the 11th. Yeah, my dad and Steve Miller too, class of 2011."
