Beyer Takes First Visit to Ann Arbor

Shortly after receiving a Michigan offer, Brennen Beyer came up to campus to formally meet the coaches and see the sights around Ann Arbor.

Prior to his unofficial visit to Michigan last weekend, Plymouth DE/TE Brennen Beyer already had an idea of what Michigan was about. He is, after all, a lifelong Michigan fan from a family of lifelong Michigan fans.

However, before he could become more serious about the possibility of becoming a Wolverine himself, he needed to get a better feel for the program's inner workings. Saturday he was able to do just that.

"I got a chance to meet and spend time with the coaches which was really cool," said Beyer. "We got a pretty good amount of time with Coach Rodriguez. I like him. He is a pretty cool guy. I like all the coaches a lot and the facilities were great. They showed me the locker room and then we got to walk on the football field. It was cool."

It proved to be a memorable experience for Beyer's father as well.

"He loved it," stated Beyer regarding his dad. "He was having as much fun as I was."

Much of the conversation between Beyer and his prospective coaches dealt with which position he would play at the next level. While no definitive conclusion was reached, he came away with a better idea of where he'd line up in Ann Arbor.

"Both and the offensive coordinator and the defensive coordinator said they want me," Beyer recalled. "I think right now it's leaning more to the defensive side though."

There was only one source of disappointment during the Plymouth star's time on campus.

"I missed the academic part because I came in late because I was coming from basketball practice," Beyer explained. "I'm going to the junior day when they play Penn State, but I might go for another (additional) visit sometime sooner. I'm not sure."

The academic component could provide the Wolverines with yet another major boost in their pursuit of this prized in-state talent. At the moment, though, Beyer is resigned to continuing his recruiting process in a thorough and deliberate manner.

"(The Michigan coaches) didn't really ask me about (committing) or bring it up too much," Beyer said. "I went into (the visit) kind of thinking that it's kind of early to (make a decision). I just wanted to get a feel for it and come back home and assess how I feel."

GoBlueWolverine will have more on Beyer in the coming months.
