Mid-July is a 'calm before the storm' period in recruiting, with the glow of camp past and the start…
U-M Offers Delaware D-End, and Leads
Wilmington (Del.) defensive end/offensive tackle Devon Still (6-5, 250, 4.9), from Howard High School, said he favors Michigan solidly over Miami, Penn State and Ohio State. "My top four schools have all offered, plus 19 other schools. Georgia is the only one recruiting me as an offensive tackle, but I'm a defensive end for the rest," Still said.
"I like Michigan because it's in the city, and there's more to do in the city. Michigan's recruiting coach, (Chris) Singletary, is younger and he's from the city like me, so I can relate to him. Even though the location is nice, Michigan has a solid lead because of their football program. The Wolverines really get hyped and push each other to be their best. Plus, I have family over there.
"I like Miami because of its hot weather and the coaches are real cool. They treat you like you know them, and they seem to understand you. I'm planning on taking an unofficial visit there in August," he said.
"Penn State's facilities are big and nice. The coaches push you real hard. I visited around April because it's only three hours away.
"I was at Ohio State two weeks ago. They have the nicest facilities I've seen so far--I guess they are newly built. That's the only big thing that stood out," Still said.
"I'll be taking official visits to get to know the schools more in depth and in detail. Then I'll commit after my football season," he said. "My best strength is my strength--I'm strong! But this summer I'm working on my techniques."
Still benches 320, has a dead lift of 425 and a 28" vertical jump.
He reports a 2.8 core GPA and a 920 SAT.
