Michigan was a team St. Paul (Minn.) Cretin-Derham Hall 2015 defensive end Jashon Cornell said stood out heading into the fall and the Wolverines bolstered their status with the four-star prospect after he visited Ann Arbor Saturday night.
"It was everything I expected and a little bit more," Cornell said. "They had 115,00 people and everybody was yelling 'Go Blue.'"
Cornell is close to narrowing his list of 22 scholarship offers down to a top group. Michigan was already a good bet to make that cut, and their position on his list is stronger after Saturday night.
"It helps them out a lot," Cornell said. "It showed me more of what they had to offer."
Cornell flew out to Ann Arbor with his friend and his friend's father. They started out their visit by meeting with the Wolverine's coaching staff.
"I talked with Coach (Greg) Mattison, Coach (Chris) Singletary and the linebackers coach," Cornell said. "They were real happy that I was out there."
During the game, Cornell sat with a large contingent of recruiting visitors. Some were players he had known before, while others he met for the first time.
"I was talking with the other recruits that were there and the other commits that were there," Cornell said. "I was hanging out with Damien Harris all last night."
Cornell is staying in southeast Michigan on Sunday to see his home-state Minnesota Vikings play the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.
