Michigan Visit in Waters' Future

The Michigan Wolverines are recruiting Maryland hard this year. As a matter of fact they've virtually camped out at one of the top schools in that state, DeMatha Catholic. The Maize & Blue have offered a handful of the powerhouse program's prospects, including S, Lorenzo Waters.

Lorenzo Waters, a highly coveted safety prospect, was offered a few weeks ago by the University of Michigan.  The talented youngster has a fair amount of interest in the Wolverines, but the same can be said about the 15 other schools he holds offers from at this point.  Thus far he has already managed to visit close to half of that group.

"I've been to Wake Forest (sister goes to school there) twice, Duke, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Maryland," Waters reported.

While he doesn't have any favorites, he did enjoy his visit to one school a little more than the others.

"Wake Forest was really nice," he said.  "It's different.  It's a small campus with only 4300 students."

Maryland is the hometown school, and the Terps have experienced success in the past at keeping some of DeMatha's best players in-state. 

"I feel a little pressure," Waters admitted.  "They keep reminding me about how many commitments they have.  Plus my aunt went to school there."

Waters has a busy schedule at DeMatha… one that requires participation in camps, 7 on 7's, and workouts after school.  He's hoping to find some time to make another visit in the not too distant future.

"Me and Mike Coley are planning to visit Michigan this summer," said Waters.  "Hopefully in a few weeks (for the barbecue at the Big House).  He has an offer too, so want to make it a group trip."

Waters is aware of the history and tradition at Michigan.

"They've been dominant in the past and have sent players to the NFL," he said.  "I'm looking to major in engineering and I know they have a great engineering program."

"Plus I play with Michigan on my NCAA game."
