Funchess Excited by Michigan Win
Posted Sep 13, 2011

Farmington Hills Harrison (Mich.) TE and Michigan commit Devin Funchess talks about the victory over Notre Dame.

Devin Funchess experienced the roller coaster of emotions that Michigan and Notre Dame fans experienced on Saturday night. A Michigan commit, the four-star tight end sat in the stands with the other recruits and saw one of the most exciting games of the early college football season so far.

"That was a live game," he said. "I got down when Notre Dame scored the wide open touchdown, but Michigan did a lot with 30 seconds. It was a great game and a great comeback and I want to be a part of it next year."

Funchess says he watched Michigan's use of the tight end closely, and couldn't help but feel a rush each time Kevin Koger grabbed a reception.

"Koger caught passes, and the passes tonight, they were very important passes. When they completed them, I was excited, because I was picturing me out there."

Another part of the offense Funchess is excited about is the jump balls thrown, something he considers a specialty of his at 6'5.

"When I was there in the spring, they were talking about me splitting out in the red zone, so I'm very excited for that," he explained.

He also wanted to finish with a message to the other recruits considering the Wolverines.

"Come. It's very exciting right now."
