One of the top in-state players in the 2022 class is four-star defensive back Myles Rowser. The brother of Michigan cornerback Andre Seldon, Rowser has been a priority long before Michigan’s new defensive coaching staff was finalized. Now that the new defensive coaching staff is set in stone, he is beginning to hear from them.
“Coach (Maurice) Linguist reached out before he came to Detroit, re-offered me and told me how much he loved my film and that they need me in,” Rowser told Maize n Brew. “Coach (Ron) Bellamy texted my dad, but hasn’t called/texted me yet, nor coach (Mike) Macdonald.”
The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder plays his high school ball at Belleville, a football powerhouse in the state of Michigan. Rowser had plans to transfer to IMG Academy in Florida, but those plans changed and he is now sticking at Belleville for his final year of high school.
Last month, Rowser put out an updated top eight list that features Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Alabama, Arkansas, Notre Dame, Kentucky, Florida and Georgia Tech. He was originally committed to Michigan, but backed off that pledge last April to reopen the recruiting process and get out on some visits.
As for those visit plans, Rowser is hoping to visit Alabama and Arkansas this spring once the NCAA in-person recruiting dead period is lifted. He is also hoping to make his commitment at the start of his senior season or “shortly after.”
Rowser is the No. 3 player in Michigan, No. 10 safety and No. 124 overall player on 247Sports’ composite rankings.
