Michael wants to visit

After making the trip to College Station for this weekend's Maroon & White game, Beaumont Westbrook running back Christine Michael plans to set up an official visit with the Aggies. Aggie Websider's David Sandhop visits with the blue-chip running back about his trip and where the Aggies stand.

The Texas A&M football program held its first annual spring game under new head coach Mike Sherman this past Saturday. In addition to the 32,000+ Aggie fans on-hand at Kyle Field, over 100 recruits and signees made the trek to College Station for the festivities. One of the most coveted Class of 2009 running backs in Texas, Christine Michael from Beaumont Westbrook, was in attendance as well.

Asked what the highlight of the day was, the 6-foot-0, 195-pound was quick to say, "Everything was a highlight," Michael said. "But I especially liked seeing my old teammates (Beaumont Westbrook) who are up there."

Michael also paid particular interest to the offensive schemes and how the running backs were being utilized by the Texas A&M coaching staff.

"I was impressed with the offense," Michael said. "They used the running backs a lot and used them in different ways to get them the ball."

As a junior, Michael rushed for 1214 yards and 24 touchdowns, while adding 259 yards receiving and four scores. That has led to early offers from Nebraska, Oklahoma, LSU, and Texas A&M to name a few, but after several visits to Texas A&M and a trip to LSU, the Aggies and Tigers appear to be receiving the most interest from the four-star running back. However, Michael says not so fast.

"I had a great time at Texas A&M and they are one of my top schools," Michael said. "But I'm not done evaluating other schools. I have another year before I need to decide and I want to wait and see what happens."

Michael did not mention any future visits or plans at this time.
