Mail just beginning for Michigan soph

Birmingham (Mich.) Brother Rice defensive lineman Darris Sawtelle saw some varsity playing time as his sophomore season progressed. In five games Sawtelle made seven tackles including a sack.
The 6-foot-5 and 285 pound Sawtelle bench presses over 300 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 5.3 seconds. He has a 3.0 core GPA.
Sawtelle's grandfather Darris McCord was a defensive end and offensive tackle for the Tennessee Volunteers. He also played in the NFL for the Detroit Lions for 13 years.
Though Sawtelle was not a full-time starter his sophomore year, he is already on the radar screens of many recruiters.
"I got a questionaire from Boston College," Sawtelle said. "And Ohio State, Michigan, and Purdue.
"And I was invited to a spring practice at Michigan. I was invited to a junior day there too. I went to a Michigan practice.
"I'm interested in anywhere I can play football.
"I will say I love Tennessee."
