One of Detroit’s most exciting and talented upcoming prospects was on the sidelines for Michigan’s tilt against Indiana this past Saturday. Detroit Renaissance 2021 athlete Robert Army is a versatile star, who is infatuated with Michigan early on in his recruitment.

“The visit was incredible, great facilities and a great atmosphere,” Army told Maize n Brew about his trip to Ann Arbor.

During his time in Ann Arbor, he was able to meet with several Michigan coaches on both sides of the ball. On the defensive side, he spoke with Don Brown and Greg Mattison. On offense, it was assistant wide receivers coach Roy Roundtree.

“(They were) asking me questions about the school, asking me how’d I like it and if I can I see myself in blue and yellow,” Army said. “Also they said focus on school before anything.”

No matter which phase of the game Army plays, he has contributed. As a sophomore, Army caught 10 touchdowns as a receiver, nabbed six interceptions, and even ran back three kicks for touchdowns.

Considering he lines up at both wide receiver and defensive back for the Phoenix, I asked the 6-foot, 174-pound Army about what side of the ball he’d prefer to play on in college.

“I really like both sides but most likely I would prefer defensive back,” Army admitted.

While he still has a long time before he has to make a college decision, Army named a few schools he’s interested in and to which he will be making visits soon.

“This weekend I have Toledo on Friday and Penn State on Saturday,” Army said.

Central Michigan is Army’s only scholarship offer so far, and he also named Eastern Michigan as a school who has been giving him love.

But one school is clearly on the top of his list.

“Michigan is first on my list for any school,” Army exclaimed. “First no doubt.”
