One of the top junior linemen in the state of Michigan, Ryan Wheat out of Flint Carman Ainsworth, is attracting interest from many recruiters including coaches from a number of Big Ten schools. And they are showing interest for Wheat's talents on both sides of the ball.
"Michigan and a lof of other colleges have been saying they want me just as much for offense as defense," Wheat said.
The 6-foot-4 and 286-pound Wheat played defensive tackle and nose tackle during his sophomore year. He played defensive tackle this season and will play tackle on both sides of the ball his senior year.
When asked what schools have been in contact, Wheat said, "Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Indiana, Wisconsin, Georgia Tech, Iowa, I think that the major ones.
"I've been to all the Michigan home games except the first one. And I went to one Michigan State game so far. They just started giving me tickets."
