Brandon Ifill came away from last weekend's Michigan visit extremely impressed. "The Big House, there's no comparison to any other school, or stadium. That was the icing on the cake. Walking down that tunnel; I got chills. I wanted to put my pads on right there. Walking on that grass, there's been so many great players to play on that field."

Probably his favorite part was the interaction with Coach Rodriguez. "He was just so laid back, and he really made me feel like he wanted to get to know me as a person. Most coaches talk about their program, and football. He made me feel like I was his friend, and he cared about what I liked. It was just a normal guy, that was talking to me about football and life. There was no big spotlight, or big ceremony, it was just real," he told me.

Before Ifill committs to UM, however, he expressed a goal of building a better relationship with the coaches. It would be great to land Ifill and his teammate—fellow UM recruit—Cullen Christian.
