The nation's top cornerback, Justin King from Pittsburgh (Pa.) Gateway recently returned from his official visit at the University of Michigan. This was the first of his five visits allowed. How was it for him?
“I had a great time at Michigan,” said the 6-foot-0, 183-pounder. “I got to see everything and feel the campus life. I also got to meet with head coach Lloyd Carr one-on-one. He is a great guy and told me I could be a good fit in his system.
"They want me at cornerback, and that’s what I think I’ll be best at. The best part of the visit was being at the football stadium. The place is huge, and the team really beat up a good Iowa team 30-17.”

It seems Michigan may have a leg up for the talented athlete from Gateway High School, but it is not over yet. Justin still plans on visiting Florida (Oct. 1), Southern Cal (Oct. 15), Penn State (Nov. 5) and possibly one other school. However, when asked what he’d give the Michigan visit on a scale of 10, it's clear the Wolverines will be tough to beat.
“It was a 10, no doubt. I loved the campus, the players, coaches, and the stadium. I can picture myself playing there for sure. However, my family wants me to think about everything. They think I should visit some more schools, and then compare after that.”
Justin is the top ranked cornerbackin the nation and No. 8 overall in the country. On Friday night, Justin had 331 yards on just 16 carries. He also scored four touchdowns in their win. King is set to announce his decision on Nov. 15 and will enroll at the school of his choice in January.
