Courtney Viney Expecting Interest from U-M
The 5-foot-8, 170-pound Viney went into the U.S. Army All-American Junior Combine in San Antonio a relative unknown on the national scene. He emerged as a First-Team All Combine member. He now lists a top three in order of preference as Cal, Nebraska, and UCLA. "My sister is applying to law school at UCLA," he said. "I'm going down there this weekend for their Junior Day. Dewayne Walker, who runs a defensive backs camp that I have attended the past couple years, and I have become good friends, and he is now the defensive coordinator at UCLA."
Michigan is not prominent at this time in Viney's recruitment, but that looks to be changing. "Coach Perry was over here today, and he told me I can expect Ron English to be out here to see me shortly," Viney said. "Johnny is telling me to be ready to come to Michigan, because they are going to come after me hard." Tony Perry is the defensive backs coach at Edison. College coaches can begin to visit recruits during the May evaluation period.
Viney is no stranger to Michigan or Coach English. During the Wolverines recruitment of Sears he was already getting looks from English. "He told me from the start that he was impressed with me and that they would be recruiting me," Viney said. "He told me that he was hoping I would get a little taller. If Michigan does start coming after me hard you can bet I'm going to give them a whole lot of consideration."
The Dewayne Walker DB Camp is once again on the list of spring events for Viney. He said he would also attend the Nike and Scout.com combines in the Los Angeles area. He said he was undecided on whether to attend any school camps. "Coach Perry said I really didn't need to go to any of the school camps," he said. "I am planning a trip to Michigan this summer to go hang out with Johnny, I'm looking forward to that."
