Allen Gant Has Great "UTL" Experience
"It was a great experience walking through the tunnel with the rest of the recruits and the guys that are committed to Michigan, knowing that Michigan is back and walking on the field and seeing that record breaking crowd was a great experience," Gant explained to GoBlueWolverine.
The product on the field, albeit rusty from time to time, proved to be an ok experience as well, with the Wolverines using a furious fourth quarter finish to snatch another victory from Notre Dame.
"I thought it was a great game. I thought both teams fought real hard. I saw that Michigan never gave up, being down 24-7, I thought they had a lot of heart and fought their way to victory."
The atmosphere itself was alive and loud throughout most of the game, and the resonated heavily with the Buckeye State defensive back.
"It was fantastic," Gant said of the atmosphere. "Especially being in the biggest stadium in college football, there's no greater feeling then that. Especially being the first night game at Michigan Stadium, it was fantastic. Listening to all the music going on between the plays… it made me want to go out there and play right away."
Gant got to spend some time before the festivities got started talking to his future coaching staff.
"I was able to talk to them before the game. I talked to Coach Borges, Coach Mallory and Coach Mattison for a little bit. They were just saying they were excited for the game and saying they wish I was out there and had the pads on it for it."
Also in Ann Arbor were official visitors, offensive lineman Zach Banner (WA) and wide receiver Jordan Payton (CA). Gant used his time in the stands to put in some work on the highly touted left coast kids, and feels pretty strongly about where the Maize and Blue stand with both.
"I actually sat right next to them. We built a pretty good relationship and it was a good experience being with them. I think that Zach and Jordan think this is a great atmosphere to be in and playing in front of 114,000 people is just an unbelievable experience. I feel like at the end of the day, Ann Arbor is where they want to be."
