Torrence Talks About Michigan Visit

Canton South junior DeVoe Torrence attended Michigan's basketball game against Indiana Saturday afternoon. Torrence, who has been offered a scholarship by the Wolverines, spoke about his trip to Michigan with Bill Greene. Are the Wolverines now the leader atop Torrence's list?

Junior DeVoe Torrence has admitted publicly to being interested in the Michigan Wolverines. After taking a trip to be a part of junior day in Ann Arbor Torrence reaffirmed his admiration for Lloyd Carr and the Wolverine program.

 

"I had a great time there Saturday," Torrence explained. "My trip was sweet. It's real nice school. Coach Carr and I got to spend some time together and he's a real nice man. We connected well and he was very nice to talk to."

 

Torrence, who has an Ohio State offer as well, has consistently said recently that Michigan and Ohio State are tied for the lead to land his services. After such an impressive trip might the Wolverines now be at the top of his list?

 

"No, not at all," Torrence exclaimed. "They are both number one in my mind. I had a nice time but I still like both school evenly. The facilities at Michigan are a little older than Ohio State's but they're even at this point to me."

 

Torrence, whose brother Devon will be a freshman football player at Ohio State in the fall, mentioned that Ohio state and Michigan are not waging a two school battle.

 

 "My list would be Ohio State and Michigan at the top," he said. "Then I have Notre Dame, Michigan State and USC in the mix. USC has contacted my school about receiving tape. I'd like to visit Southern California, maybe in the spring."

 

Torrence is not planning an extensive camp tour in the upcoming months.

 

 "I'll go to Ohio State and Michigan for sure," Torrence continued. "I also want to go to Cris Carter's speed camp in Coral Springs, Florida. I'm not real sure about anywhere else at this time."

 

It also appears Torrence has formed a friendship with a fellow Ohioan, Mike Adams from Dublin. Adams also attended the basketball game as a guest of the Wolverines.

 

 "Oh yah, Mike and I are tight," Torrence said. "We talked a lot about recruiting and stuff. I'll be talking with him again I'm sure. He's a great guy. We talked about playing for the same college. That would be sweet."
