Obi Ezeh Returns from PSU Game w/ U-M in Lead

Athlete Obi Ezeh of Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids, Mich., was in attendance on Saturday as the Wolverines thrilled a packed Michigan Stadium crowd with a last-second, 27-25 victory over No. 8 Penn State. Ezeh recently received an offer from U-M, but returned from the visit without a pledge.

GoBlueWolverine.com spoke Sunday with Grand Rapids athlete Obi Ezeh. The quiet big man returned home from his visit to Ann Arbor on Saturday, and talked of the game.

"It was pretty amazing," Ezeh said. "Everyone was excited, and the players after the game were very happy. I got to hang out with them after, especially the Grand Rapids players, Rueben Riley, Kevin Grady, and David Harris." Catholic Central beat Riley's alma mater, Creston, on Friday 35-0. Ezeh rushed for 96-yards on eight carries, including a 68-yard rumble for a touchdown.

The 6-foot-2, 219-pound Ezeh recently received a scholarship offer from Michigan, to go along with offers from Indiana, Western Michigan, and Eastern Michigan, but he did not make a commitment during the visit. "I am going to wait until after the season before deciding," he said. "I'm in the process of setting up official visits as we speak, and I want to take those before I make a decision."

Ezeh said Michigan offensive coordinator Terry Malone is recruiting him. "I really don't want to say that anyone leads, but if I have to I'll say Michigan is leading," he said. "I'm looking for a good school to get a good education."

Listed as an athlete, Ezeh said schools were recruiting him primarily for the running back and linebacker positions. "Michigan is looking at me for either position," he said. "I really don't have a preference."

Ezeh worked out at both the RB and LB positions at the Michigan Camp this past June.
