Ann Arbor was a popular destination last weekend for some of the nation's top prospects. 2015 Rivals250 Watch List member Matthew Burrell Jr. also made the trip with Da'Shawn Hand and Tim Settle. Burrell, an offensive lineman from Woodbridge (Va.) C. D. Hylton, clearly had a great time at Michigan.
"It was wonderful," said the 6-foot-4, 286-pound Burrell. "We saw everything and everybody. It was cool when we were first getting here getting onto campus. We instantly met up with some of the coaches and players. We went from there to walk around the Champion's center and had a great meal and watched a pretty intense video."
Burrell also got some face time with the coaching staff and got an update on his offer status.

"When I talked to Coach Funk he said he watched my film and saw that I always help people up," he said. "He also said that I was high on their list and that an offer is right around the corner. He wants me to keep working hard, stay in touch and get back to campus when I can. I loved it and I told him that. As far as an offer, it's all about the numbers right now so we'll see."
Burrell has offers from schools like Alabama, Clemson, Maryland, Notre Dame, Ohio State and many others but this visit made a big impression on him.
"This was one of my best visits," Burrell said. "I don't have a top five. I don't have any favorites. Every school is equal right now and I'm considering everyone. I want to wait."
