It was beginning to look like wide receiver Mario Urrutia would decide between Virginia, Louisville and Kentucky sometime in the near future. But a new school has entered the picture, managing to capture Urrutia's attention.
The 6-foot-5, 200-pound receiver from Louisville (Ken.) Fern Creek is considered one of the best big targets in the region, and now one of the nation's most prestigious programs is recruiting him.
"Michigan has been paying me a lot of attention recently," said Urrutia. "I've definitely been listening to what they've had to say. You've got to consider Michigan when they talk to you. I'm going to visit them sometime in January, and I'll be done with all my visits by then."
Though the Wolverines have moved up on Urrutia's list, Virginia, Louisville and Kentucky are still in the picture. Earlier in the recruiting process Urrutia gave a verbal commitment to Kentucky, before deciding he had acted to hastily. He's got a visit coming up in a couple of weeks.
"I'm probably going to Louisville on Jan. 9, as long as nothing changes between now and then," he said. "They're in my top four and I've wanted to see them for a while. I like the offense they run. They always talk about how I could go in and catch a lot of passes my first year."
Urrutia said he would make his decision after his official visit to Michigan.
