Defensive back Josh Metellus (Hollywood, Florida) currently boasts offers from a handful of Division-I schools, but is currently a hard commit to the Wolverines from their impressive 2016 class.
Maize n Brew spoke with Metellus about his visit for this season's Northwestern game, the importance of satellite camps, the evolution of Michigan's defense and the coaching staff.
Metellus was offered by Michigan during the staff's summer satellite camp tour in Miami. He took an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor about a week later.
"It blew me away," Metellus said about his visit, and committed almost immediately.
Satellite camps were a source of controversy over the summer, but it was the main reason Metellus was discovered by Michigan and he spoke about how their meeting created his comfort with the program.
"The coaching staff is amazing. They know how to win, and have a lot of experience," Metellus said of Jim Harbaugh and company. "I feel comfortable and safe with my career, and becoming a man in their hands."
Metellus is a teammate of 2016 linebacker target Devin Bush Jr., who is one of Michigan's top targets. He says they speak often about the Wolverines, but that it's up to Bush himself, and only time will tell. The same applies to three-star wide receiver Pie Young, another Michigan target from Miami.
While there have been rumors of attrition in their 2016 class, Metellus maintains that he is "all for Michigan as of right now."
He is a three-star prospect and the 91st-ranked safety in the 2016 class, per the 247 Composite rankings.
