Ever since offensive line coach Ed Warinner took the job at Michigan, the Wolverines’ recruitment of offensive linemen has gone up tenfold. It doesn’t seem to matter how many are being taken in any given class — the Wolverines are going after tons of bodies along the offensive line, and for good reason.
Michigan has a chance to land some really good players along the line in the 2021 class, and there were quite a few on Michigan’s campus this past weekend for the BBQ at the Big House. One of them happens to reside in Michigan, Davion Weatherspoon.
The 6-foot-2, 310-pounder from Detroit told Maize n Brew all about his trip to Ann Arbor.
“The visit went well, I had a blast,” Weatherspoon told Maize n Brew. “I built my bond with coaches even more (on Saturday).”
Weatherspoon says he is close with all the coaches, but more so Warinner and graduate assistant Josh Hendershot.
“They have both talked to me a lot and taught me some things,” he said. “We don’t talk over the phone that much because of the rule, but every time I’m there we talk a lot.”
Along with the coaches, Weatherspoon also said he got to talk with some of the other recruits at the event, including Michigan commits 2021 5-star quarterback J.J. McCarthy and 2020 4-star cornerback Andre Seldon, as well as Michigan targets 2021 4-star center Ryan Linthicum and 2021 4-star offensive lineman Rocco Spindler.
“I think they are all good guys we all bond together great,” Weatherspoon said.
At this point, Weatherspoon doesn’t know when he would want to commit to his future school. He does, however, plan on checking out a game or two at the Big House this fall.
“Maybe the MSU (game) and Ohio State,” he said. “I’m excited for them.”
Besides Michigan, Weatherspoon is also interested in Michigan State, Kentucky and others.
Weatherspoon said Michigan is recruiting him to play center, but he is versatile enough to play anywhere on the inside.
