Detroit Cass Tech four-star running back Mike Weber has stayed active with his recruitment this winter, and this weekend will make a visit to an SEC school.
"I am visiting Tennessee this Friday," Weber reported. "Their coaches are keeping in good contact with me. I want to see if my position will come together like it is supposed to. I am real excited about the guys that are coming in and just want to see as far as the playing time."
Visits have been going on throughout the winter for Weber, but he did not go anywhere this past weekend.
"I was supposed to go down to Michigan, but [couldn't] at the last minute," Weber said. "I had been there for the basketball game against Wisconsin and I had been to the Iowa game too.
"Michigan has been on me real hard since they got the new guy, Coach Nuss [Doug Nussmeier]. I am excited about him and the offense they are about to go back to. Coach Nuss is a cool guy. When he sat down and talked to me he sounded real excited about me."
Michigan has offered Weber and so has their Big Ten rival Ohio State. Those two are among the schools recruiting him the hardest at this time.
"Right now I can say Coach Nuss has been going the hardest out of all of them," Weber said. "Coach [Kerry] Coombs from Ohio State, he is real aggressive too."
Shortly after his junior season ended, Weber listed Michigan State among his top three and the Spartans remain a contender in his recruitment.
"The Spartans are a good program and they run the ball," Weber said. "I am just taking my time with everything right now.
"I am honestly open to any college right now. I am just taking in my options and having fun with it. I always wanted to [commit] on TV at an All-American game, but if that doesn't work out I was thinking before the season starts."
The 5-foot-10, 205-pound Weber holds a total of nine scholarship offers, but additional schools are still showing interest and additional visits are being planned.
"Alabama has been keeping in touch with me a lot and is starting to come into the picture a little bit," Weber said. "Wisconsin is Running Back University and they have a good program, so I'm looking at them too. I am going up to Wisconsin in April and we go out to Alabama every year for a 7-on-7."
The trip to Alabama will take place in June. The Crimson Tide have not yet offered, though Wisconsin has. Other offers for the nation's No. 10 ranked running back include Illinois, Nebraska, N.C. State and Syracuse.
