Torrian Wilson interested in Michigan

Miami Northwestern is a powerhouse program, producing several college prospects every year. This year is no different, and the Michigan Wolverines are hoping to land a prospect or two from their talent laden roster – including OL Torrian Wilson, *who is on the U-M campus right now* as he visits his aunt in the Ann Arbor area.

They say that football games are won and lost up front, it's clear that Rich Rodriquez believes in that theosophy. With that in mind, the Michigan Wolverines threw their hat in the ring with Miami offensive guard Torrian Wilson.

"They told me they were offering me during our state title run, then I got it in the mail. Then I talked to coach Magee," Wilson recalled.

The 6-4, 315 pound lineman had some interesting thoughts when discussing what he knows about Michigan.

"Tradition rich, the fan base. They also got Denard Robinson, I saw him play. He's pretty good, and fast."

Despite not wanting to name favorites, Wilson did comment on the two Florida schools he likes, and dislikes.

-- Florida - "I like it there, it's a disciplined school."
-- Miami - "It's a family school, they make everybody feel wanted."
-- Florida State - They haven't offered, and I'm not really looking at them."

Two schools from the Pac 10 are also heavily involved, and are sure to get visits.

"Stanford and UCLA have offered, and I will officially visit both of those schools. I'm not going waste my visits on instate schools, I'll visit them unofficially."

Wilson takes academics very seriously. He took the SAT test last week, and will have no trouble qualifying. He still managed to get out this spring at various camps and combines.

"I've been to the Nike and UnderArmour camps, and I haven't lost a one on one battle yet."

While any school would love to have a player like that, it's going take more than a practice dummy to get Wilson's services.

"Academics first, school atmosphere, people, and facilities. I'm from a big city, so I'd like a big city too."

The Northwestern standout will soon be able to gauge if the city of Ann Arbor is big enough for him, thanks in part to his Michigan recruiter Jay Hopson.

"Me and coach Hopson are on the same page, I like him a lot. He wants to compete for a championship, and I think I can help Michigan do that. I'll be seeing him this weekend."
