Michigan makes strong case for Torrian Wilson

With a flight scheduled to board Sunday night, OL Torrian Wilson had just a little time to talk. However, he did manage to share some quick thoughts with GBW. The Wolverines have some family things going for them with the Miami lineman.

Even before stepping foot on campus this weekend, the big fella from Miami Northwestern started facing a bit of pressure to choose the Wolverines as soon as he landed at Detroit Metro.

"I stayed with my uncle and aunt in Michigan ... they are big Michigan fans," Torrian Wilson told GoBlueWolverine. "All my family up there likes the Wolverines, some of then went to Michigan."

Wilson's family did some recruiting on the Wolverines behalf.

"They were on me, wanting me to go to Michigan," he said.

Once on campus, Wilson was impressed.

"It was very fun! Seeing the crowd, they had close to 60,000 people there for a spring game."

The visit also gave the Florida star a chance to catch up with some players from his home state.

"I talked to some players, but mainly Ricky Barnum, Martavious Odoms, and Vincent Smith. I didn't know them like that before, but they cool."

Wilson also finally had the chance to meet up with the men that have been recruiting him.

"It was coach Magee, Coach Singletary, and Coach Rodriquez that I talked to. They want me. Coach Frye said that I could make a big impact at offensive guard."

Outside of taking his official visits, Wilson currently has no plans to visit any other schools.

"Nah, I just went to relax for awhile." So with his visit to Ann Arbor in the books, where do the Wolverines stand?

"Michigan is number one -- they re my top school."

Anybody else?

"No, just Michigan."
