"Really, my mindset is that I am the best," Weber said. "That's the mindset you're supposed to have. So when I go out there and I see guys running harder than me, it's going to push me harder to go better than them."
Rated a four-star prospect, Weber admits it's been his goal to earn an Opening invite since his freshman year at Cass.
"It's a goal that I had set back when I was a freshman, because I saw [former teammates] Terry Richardson, Jourdan Lewis and Delano Hill, and all them guys go," Weber said. "I knew it was a big camp. It's just a real big deal. I'm just looking forward to coming out there and having fun."
Talking Michigan and Malzone
Weber, who put Michigan in his top-five earlier this month, had some positive things to say about U-M QB commit Alex Malzone, who has been putting his best recruiting pitch to get Weber to join him in Ann Arbor.
"Alex is a good quarterback," Weber said. "He is everything you really need. He is a good guy also. He came up to me one day and said, ‘I don't want nobody else in the country but you.' And that opened my eyes a lot. To know that a guy like that who is the quarterback, to say something like that – it's real big. So I am really considering them."
With Michigan's annual Barbecue at the Big House is set for late July, Weber says he hopes to continue building his relationship with Malzone and U-M during his visit.
"We're building our relationship," Weber said. "We are meeting up at the barbecue. We're going to go out with a few players and just hangout."
As far as Weber's thoughts on Michigan: "Michigan is a real good school for me. I look at Michigan a lot. I see it building back up. The only thing I am waiting on is to see how they do this football season."
Weber is planning to make his commitment known at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in early January.
