Brian took official visits to Pittsburgh (12/7), Toledo (12/14), Michigan (1/11) and Penn State (1/18).

"I've made my decision.," Brian said.

Where's he going?

"Michigan,  I just had a feeling that that's where I want to be."

Brian did enjoy his visit to Penn State this past weekend, but it was not enough to lure him away from his home state.  Brian called Coach Vanderlinden today to inform him of his decision.

"I had a great visit to Penn State and I think it's a great school, it just came down to a feeling."
