Plainfield (Ill.) Central junior offensive tackle prospect Perry Dorrestein (6-foot-6, 285 pounds) landed his first phone call on Sunday, the first day that college coaches were allowed to call prospects. Dorrestein was also pleasantly surprised at who reached out and called him first on Sunday.
"The coaches from the University of Michigan called me first on Sunday," Dorrestein said. "I was sort of surprised that my first call was from Michigan, basically because I hadn't received too much mail from them."
Dorrestein enjoyed his talk with the Wolverines.
"I spoke with Andy Moeller, who's my recruiting coach at Michigan and who's also the offensive line coach. He said that he saw my junior tape and was impressed. He said that he likes my potential and my overall upside, which was great to hear. He asked me if I was interested in Michigan football, and I sort of choked at first because it hit me that I was talking to Michigan out of nowhere. Yes, I told him after a few seconds that I'm definitely interested in Michigan football. He said that he'll be making an in school visit this week."
Dorrestein has also drawn plenty of in school visitors.
"Ron Zook from Illinois made an in school visit last week, and a few other coaches stopped by as well. This week both Notre Dame and Michigan are scheduled to make in school visits."
Dorrestein is also considering attending this Saturday's Nike Camp in Ann Arbor.
"I'm thinking about going to the Nike Camp in Michigan on Saturday. I'm still trying to work things out right now."
