Top OL recaps U-M visit, plans another

Offensive tackle is a position of heavy emphasis in 2010 for the Wolverines' 2010 recruiting class. While they are involved with a few of the nations best, one prospect from the East Coast who visited U-M recently will get a long look from Coach Rich Rodriquez and his staff.

Good Counsel is home to one of the nations top offensive lineman in Robby Havenstein. The massive offensive tackle made the trek to Ann Arbor weeks ago for Junior Day Event, "Night of Champions."

"It went great, I saw a lot of stuff. I spent time talking with coach Frey and Rodriquez."

Havenstein sports offers from Stanford, Maryland, Penn State, and NC State among others. A recent trip to Charlottesville added to that total.

"I went down to Virginia, everything thing was real nice. They offered me."

The Wolverines are involved, but have yet to put an offer on the table. That could change if Havenstein follows through with his current plans.

"Michigan wants to see me in person first. They want me to camp, and I think I will since I have family that will come and pick me up from the airport. My aunt and uncle live in Michigan, and are big Wolverine fans."

While he's not sure of all the factors that will influence his decision in picking a school, he does have a few ideas.

"My dad wants me to redshirt, but it doesn't matter to me. I'll come in and compete."

"I'm not sure of a major, but it will probably have something to do with mathematics. I'm pretty good with numbers."

Havenstein hasn't Taken a qualifying test yet, but reports a 3.8 gpa.

He will make his commitment during the season.
