The nation's top all-purpose running back Sam McGuffie took an unofficial visit to Michigan this weekend and enjoyed the sights and scenery.
McGuffie, a Rivals250 member, posted city-leading rushing and touchdown totals last season. He reached the state track meet for the second time in two years. He rushed for 3,121 yards and 43 touchdowns as a junior, leading his team three games deep in the playoffs.
The offers began pouring in during January. Kansas offered first, followed by several others including Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Nebraska, California, USC, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida and Alabama. Notre Dame also threw its name in the hat.
Academically, he recently learned that his ACT test score was a 22.
The 6-foot running back got to visit one of his childhood favorite schools this past weekend – Michigan. His father's side of his family is from Detroit and have been lifelong Michigan fans.
"My grandfather is coming up today to see the campus," McGuffie said. "I'm happy to be able to see him and share this with him."
McGuffie has been on a four-day visit to the state of Michigan, mostly on the large academic campus.
"It's been a great couple of days," McGuffie said. "I got to see the Big House and got the grand tour. I've gotten to visit with Brandon Herron and running back Mike Hart. They are both great guys.
"I really liked the campus and all of the coaches."
