In less than two weeks, football will be back in Ann Arbor. The Michigan Wolverines will be holding their annual Maize against Blue Spring football game on Saturday, April 15, 2017. As much attention as the players garner on the field, what may have more eyes this season is the people who are attending. More and more Michigan commits and possible recruits are announcing that they will be attending the Spring game. The visitors will be headlined by DT commit Aubrey Solomon and WR Nico Collins who have already committed to Michigan.
Solomon has been extremely vocal on Twitter expressing his excitement for this upcoming season. Solomon, who announced his decision to attend Michigan on National Signing Day, will be a tremendous compliment to Michigan’s defensive line alongside Rashan Gary, Maurice Hurst and others.
Can't wait until the ENTIRE Michigan signing class of 2017 gets to AA ??…. I'm ready to put on with all my brothers ? #GoBlue 〽️〽️〽️— Aubrey Solomon (@AubreySolomon91) April 5, 2017
Solomon is not the only freshman who is urgent to get the season rolling. Freshman James Hudson is anxious to get the ball rolling and get to work.
I just wanna get to Ann Arbor so I can get to it ?— James Hudson III ™ (@__BallisLife2) April 4, 2017
Also in attendance, all three of Michigan’s 2018 commitments will be at the Spring game. Emil Ekiyor Jr., Otis Reese, and Aiden Hutchinson will all get first-hand experiences in terms of what it’s like to be a Michigan Wolverine.
There are also some notable recruits that will be in attendance at Michigan’s Spring game in order to get the real feel of what it would be like playing in the Big House. Here are some of the recent recruits to come out and say they will be attending.
Demarcco Hellams (2019/WR)
Demarcco Hellams is a 6-foot-1 receiver from Hyattsville, Maryland who currently holds fourteen offers. The most notable offers include defending National Champions Clemson, reigning Big Ten champions Penn State, Michigan and hometown Maryland. Hellams is an exceptional talent who would only add to the Wolverines’ young and talented receiving core.
Logan Brown (2019/OT)
April 15th I'll be visiting UofM for there spring game! Can't wait to go to a Ann Arbor! It feels like it's been forever〽️ @UMichFootball— Logan Brown (@loganbrown53) April 4, 2017
Logan Brown is the nation’s No. 2 ranked offensive tackle for the class of 2019 according to 247Sports.com. The Grand Rapids native expressed on Twitter how excited he will be in his return to Ann Arbor for the Spring game. Brown is a 6-foot-6, 285 pound monster and would be a great addition to the offensive line for whichever team he may land. If Brown decided to attend Michigan; he, Chuck Filiaga, and Cesar Ruiz would be a defensive line’s nightmare.
Spring is officially here. Now starts the hard work, the dedication, the blood, sweat, and tears into football. Four months of hours upon hours of practices, all in preparation for the season opener. Michigan will look to improve their 2016-2017 record of 10-3 and get over the third-place hump in the Big Ten East. With the amount of talent and youth mixed with the veteran leadership of this Wolverines squad, Michigan will have their eyes set on one destination, a championship.
