2022 Belleville (Mich.) safety Myles Rowser follows in his older brother Andre Seldon’s, a 2020 four-star commitment, footsteps. Both play football on the same Tigers team. Both roam the secondary for a loaded secondary.
Now, both have offers from Michigan. The Wolverines extended one to the in-state freshman Thursday, giving him his first from a Power Five program.
Michigan is the third to enter this recruiting battle, joining Western and Central Michigan. Don Brown and cornerbacks coach Mike Zordich informed Rowser’s father of the offer.
“My dad texted me [about the offer],” he said to Maize n’ Brew. “I haven’t spoken to any coaches — only my parents.”
Rowser looks to have several conversations with his big brother, a junior who committed to Michigan back in June 2018.
“My brother is a role model for me, so the influence is strong,” he said. “I saw him put (in) the work, and I plan to do the same thing.”
The 5-foot-11, 165-pounder may be the younger brother, but he presents more size than his 5-foot-9, 154-pound counterpart. Rowser expressed excitement at the possibility of continuing his career next to Seldon in Ann Arbor.
“We battle together now in Belleville,” he explained to 247 Sports’ Allen Trieu, “but playing there at U of M would be unreal.”
The early competition will come from Big Ten East peers Michigan State and Penn State. While neither have extended offers, both have hosted him for unofficial trips.
“(MSU) and Penn State have always been on my list,” he said, “but no visits planned right now. I camped (in East Lansing) in the summer and visited (PSU) last spring break.”
Michigan holds a lot of advantages in Rowser’s recruitment outside of his brother’s pledge.
“I like the value of the degree and the football program,” he said. “Overall, it’s a great school and I’m honored to be offered and (to be given) the opportunity to attend.”
He will be in Crisler Center Feb. 24 for the rivalry game against Michigan State. He did not state a timeline for a decision.
Here are his fall highlights.
