CB Terrence Talbott Hearing From U-M

The younger-smaller of the 2010 Talbott brothers from Ohio is also hearing from the Wolverines.  Does a childhood allegiance come into play preventing the Maize and Blue's chances?  Is a visit in the works?  GoBlueWolverine gets the latest.

Terrence Talbott is the little brother in both senses of word.  Younger (by just nine months) and smaller (by aLOT) than big brother and defensive tackle Terry Talbott, the 5-9 cornerback prospect certainly isn't small on the field.

  "I'm humble, but on the field I'm real confident," Talbott explained to GoBlueWolverine.  "My goal is to lock up whoever is across from me and just make plays."

  Making those plays has definitely caught the attention of a plethora of Division 1 schools, including some heavy interest from the Wolverines.

  "I got Wisconsin, Kentucky, Illinois and Purdue (as official scholarship offers).  From what I know, Michigan might offer me."

  Should Michigan decide to officially offer him, Talbott insists that the interest is mutual, even after growing up a fan of arch-rival Ohio State.

  "I like how prepared Michigan is and how big the O-State game is.  I'm not going to lie, I been an O-State fan coming up.  But I'm not holding anything against Michigan, they a good football team or they have been.  They fell off a little bit, but they're coming back."

  Part of that comeback is accumulating the best talent they can get their hands on, and the Wolverines would certainly have a puncher's chance in the race for Talbott's services.

  "I wouldn't just pick another school over Michigan just because they're O-State's enemy.  I'm interested in Michigan, but I just need to visit and learn more about their program."

As far as driving up to Michigan for a visit, he said,  "When I got time and we can get a ride ... that is is the biggest thing right now."

  Car problems and other extenuating circumstances have thus prevented both of the brothers a chance to unofficially visit Ann Arbor.  While they're still working on getting something done on that front, the Wolverines without question would receive an official visit if the other route fails.

  "Oh yeah, definitely," Talbott responded when queried about a Michigan official visit.
