"Rush"ing Back To Michigan

A mere two weeks after an initial visit to Ann Arbor, one of Cincinnati Moeller's prized prospects made yet another trip up north to visit the Wolverines. Is he close to a decision? What was the reason for such a quick visit?

Marcus Rush left Michigan's junior day two weeks ago with a new leader in his clubhouse. The Wolverines jumped heavily into the mix for the defensive prospect after a visit that, admittedly, didn't fully quench Rush's thirst. He got a chance to get a lot more one on one time this past Saturday during the Wolverines spring scrimmage.

"I got there Friday night," Rush told GoBlueWolverine. "We just stayed in the hotel that night but on Saturday got to see spring practice. Afterwards I got to talk to Coach Rodriguez and Coach Hopson for a while. With Coach Rodriguez, it was really relaxed… It was just a regular conversation. Then we got talking about football a little bit. It was pretty much the same thing with Coach Hopson."

Spending a little more time one on one with the coaches certainly was high on Rush's priority list, but there were several other aspects he wanted to take in this time.

"The first visit, I really didn't get to see much of the facilities, or the stadium, or the academic center. I wanted to talk to the coaches more too, because I didn't really get to talk to them that much. I just wanted to see Michigan again."

With a chance to fully appreciate many of things the Wolverines have to offer, Rush struggled to find many adjectives for all the positives as well as drawing a complete blank on anything that could possibly turn him off towards the Maize and Blue.

"The academic center, the stadium, and the coaches were all great. I was amazed by everything I saw, as usual. I mean… there are just no complaints."

When GBW caught up with Rush mere days ago, he publicly announced that the Wolverines had taken the lead for his services over other suitors such as Virginia, Cincinnati, and North Carolina State.

"Oh yeah. Right now, yes, they are my leader. I just want to look into them more, and learn a lot more about them."

Though he's made the trip back and forth to Ann Arbor twice in two weeks, it's not something that will discourage Rush from heading up again, should he feel the whim.

"I'm not going to hold off or anything. I talked to Coach Hopson and everything, and if they want me up it's not like it's that far of a drive or anything."
