Welcome to the Monday edition of our Michigan Recruiting Roundup! The last roundup of 2019.
Today we’re focusing on a big game in a few days. No, not the Citrus Bowl. A day after Michigan vs. Alabama face off in the Citrus Bowl in Orlando at Camping World Stadium, the best players in high school will be playing in the same stadium in the Under Armour All-America Game. Michigan has a handful of commits participating in it.
The four-star, 5-foot-8 corner, who committed to Michigan a couple weeks back said he’s ready to go at it against the best receivers in the country this week. Seldon will be moving into Michigan just a few days after the All-America Game and has already participated in a couple UM practices as an early-enrollee. “It was kind of surreal,” Seldon said about practicing with the Michigan team. “The first day was kind of different. I getting used to it but as two more days came, I got used to it and it was the same for me, just paying attention to details.”
“Everything is good with Michigan. I should be signing in February,” three-star 2020 OL Micah Mazzccua said at UA All-America practice this week. While Mazzccua wouldn’t say whether he’ll take visits to any other schools or not, he said that he’s pretty sure he’s going to Michigan.
2020 four-star running back commit Blake Corum will be playing in the UA All-America Game and he chatted with the media about his experience practicing with the Michigan team earlier this month. “They were telling me to stay in playbook,” Corum said. “I already knew a lot of plays with my pass protection, so I am locking in on those. They said if you know your playbook, there are definitely going to be opportunities. I felt like I fit in phenomenally. I felt like I was out there practicing with the guys. They got me into space. They ran me up the middle. They did everything with me that they said they were going to do. It was awesome.”
2020 four-star defensive end commit Braiden McGregor won’t be able to play in the UA All-America Game, but he’s on hand in Florida for the week of festivities. McGregor said that his rehab is ahead of schedule and he should be able to participate in spring ball for Michigan. The 6-foot-6 McGregor said working on his strength will be a point of emphasis. McGregor currently weighs 260 and will have to pack on more than 20 pounds. The good news, though, he says he isn’t worried about the playbook.
