Josh Brent: U-M Visitor Sat. Has a Leader

An unofficial visitor at the MSU game Saturday was 6-3, 290-pound defensive tackle Josh Brent from Bloomington (Ill.) Central Catholic. Going into the visit Ohio State was his leader ... did anything change?

An unofficial visitor at the MSU game Saturday was 6-3, 290 lb. DT Josh Brent from Bloomington Central Catholic. GoBlueWolverine spoke to him Sunday noon.

What did you think of the game?

"The defensive line played well, Chad Henne and the receivers played well ... it was a good overall team effort."

You'd been to Michigan before, right?

"Yeah, this was my second time at Michigan. I also camped for a day this past summer."

What would you say you got out of the visit?

"I went to enjoy the game, and I got to meet more of the players, and to talk to the coaches some more."

You have a list of top schools, correct?

"Yeah, my top three are Illinois, Ohio State and Michigan."

Have you been to games at all three now?

"I haven't been a game at Ohio State yet. I went to Iowa for the Iowa-Ohio State game. I'm going to Ohio State for the Michigan game."

And you have a official Michigan scheduled?

"Yeah. My Michigan official visit is December 1st."

You's previously said Ohio State was your leader. Did this visit change things at all?

"Seeing the game last night changed things a little for me, but I'd say Ohio State still leads."

What is it about OSU for you?

"It's their need for D-tackles, and the comfort level with the players and coaches there, and the comfort with the school."

Brent also camped at Ohio State this summer, as well as at Iowa.
