Big Ten offer interests Shittu

Aziz Shittu has a lot of impressive offers and the Atwater (Calif.) Buhach defensive tackle picked up another one when Michigan offered the 6-foot-2, 280-pounder. The Wolverines definitely interest Shittu, who still has Stanford as one of his favorites.
"It was basically a four-day span to get the (Michigan) offer," Shittu said. "I sent them my film and they got with my recruiter and the coaches said they'd look at it the next day and then they decided to offer.
"It's obviously a big offer. Michigan might not be the Michigan of old but the tradition is always going to be there among the college football ranks."

There is a chance Shittu could end his recruitment if he really enjoys his time at Stanford's upcoming junior day but the Northern California recruit said now that more schools are involved in his recruitment there is a chance he could wait it out.
Even if an unofficial visit to Michigan doesn't fit into Shittu's schedule there is a chance he could visit Ann Arbor for an official trip. The more offers Shittu receives the more he's thinking about delaying his decision but he still could end it if the right situation suits him.
"If Michigan ends up being in my top five or my top seven, whatever I make when I make it, if I can't get out there on an unofficial visit then I'll definitely take an official visit to see what's up there," Shittu said.
"Right now, I'm thinking I might go through the recruiting process but I'm still unsure about that. (Stanford) is in the top seven right now. They're the first team in the top seven."
Shittu also has offers from Arizona, Boise State, Colorado, Iowa State, Nevada, Oregon State, San Jose State, Stanford, UCLA, Washington and Washington State.
He said Penn State, Nebraska and Oregon have been showing more interest and because of that Shittu might wait to make a decision to see which other programs get involved in his recruitment.
