Will Hagerup is considered the No. 3 punter nationally, and has recently had the opportunity to meet with Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez in Ann Arbor.
“Michigan is definitely one of the schools I am looking really hard at,” Hagerup said. “(Rodriguez) said that with the combination of academics and what the football team is going to accomplish in the next few years, it’s going to be a good place for me.”
Hagerup recalls Rodriguez told him, “You’re the one we want,” telling him to be ready to see the field in his freshman year.
Hagerup's coach had great things to say about him.
“Will has as much potential as anyone in the country,” Sailer said. “A big, tall, physical punter that has all the tools, (he) should be a great college punter.”
Filling the shoes of Zoltan Mesko will be no easy task, but Hagerup appears to have all the skills necessary to do so, and perhaps even exceed Mesko's talents in college.
