It is obvious this past weekend for Michigan recruiting was huge.

After a visit from 2019 5-star safety Daxton Hill, he decided just a few days later it was enough to commit to the program.

However, there was another safety in the stands that also enjoyed his time in Ann Arbor.

2020 4-star safety Lathan Ransom came all the way from Tucson, Arizona to see the Wolverines play SMU last weekend, and the miles he logged were well worth it.

“It was great. Michigan is an amazing atmosphere,” Ransom told Maize n Brew. “I got to see all the facilities, met with all the coaches and players.”

The coaches Ransom got to meet include head coach Jim Harbaugh and safeties coach Chris Partridge, and he said he was impressed with both guys.

“Coach Harbaugh is an extremely knowledgeable guy,” Ransom said. “He has so much experience — that was impressive to learn from. I had a lot of fun talking with coach Partridge. He explained the defense and techniques and where I could possibly fit in the defense. He was a straight up guy, which I liked. He didn’t sugarcoat anything.”

This was Ransom’s first time at the Big House for a game, which ended up being just another thing that made him impressed with the program.

“It was huge,” Ransom said. “It was cool because all the fans were into the game and showing a lot of energy. It was an awesome experience.”

Despite having met with some coaches and players, and seeing the facilities, Ransom admits his favorite part of the trip was something that doesn’t happen to every recruit.

“Definitely walking through the tunnel and having Michigan fans call my name,” he said. “It was super special.

“It was an amazing experience.”

For now, the 6-foot-2, 183-pounder does not have a return visit in place. Along with Michigan, he is drawing interest from other big time programs and holds offers from Georgia, Washington, USC, Stanford, Oklahoma and Nebraska.

Both crystal balls are still on Stanford to land the talented safety, but time will tell if his visit to Ann Arbor last weekend will have an impact on his recruitment moving forward.
