Four-star running back Brandon Minor out of Richmond (Va.) Varina just announced that he will be playing his college ball in Ann Arbor. The 6-foot-0, 213-pounder chose Michigan over offers from Tennessee, Miami, Virginia Tech and others.
"I actually committed to them about a week and a half ago when I talked to coach Campbell and Jackson," he said. "They were all really hyped. They were so pumped up about my commitment it was like they were playing a football game."
What made Minor finally decide to be a Wolverine?
"Michigan's got everything I want and it's been a dream of mine to go there," he said. "Now I don't just have to see myself on their team in a video game anymore, I'm actually going. I see myself as a Michigan running back since they run a lot of plays from the I-formation.
"A lot of the coaches factored into my decision. Erik Campbell and Fred Jackson really did a good job recruiting me. They showed me how well I fit into their system."
The coaches have already told the No. 6 player in Virginia if he works hard enough he'll see the field next season.
"They told me if I come and do everything right I'm guaranteed to at least play some," he said. "Over the next six months I'm going to work extremely hard doing some very intense workouts to get myself ready.
"I'm dedicated and I feel I can offer a lot of hard work to their team. I'll give everything to the team."
Minor had a few words to say to Michigan's fans.
"I just want to give them a big thank you," he said. "I hope I can follow in former Michigan star and Richmond native David Terrell's footsteps and have the same kind of success he did."
Minor plans to study business with a focus in real estate at Michigan.
