    more of a DT/DE than an OT/DE imo. Definitely see him playing defense. Heavy Michigan lean, will visit for the Spring game and there is a decent chance he is their first commit for the 2014 class.

    Not surprised with that news.


    Edit: He didn't have a commitable offer anyway :biggrin:

    When McDowell burst onto the scene early last month, Dave Berk of Scout said he looked like a "taller, younger Adolphus Washington." After that, one of the MSU guys over at Spartan Tailgate said McDowell was "a combination of William Gholston and Lawrence Thomas."

    So...yeah, the hype is already reaching atmospheric levels.

    No way is he a heavy Michigan lean. I think he will decide much later in the process, but you gotta think Michigan has the edge early.
  6. I read an article that he grew up as a big Michigan fan, and he is wearing a pair of Michigan shorts in the video above. Still though, anything can happen when a prospect has offers from big name programs during his Sophomore year of high school.

    Everything I've seen so far points to an eventual commitment to Michigan. Might be a while though.

    Nope, no one has worn Michigan shorts before and not committed to Michigan.

  11. Some players casually grow up rooting for a particular school, but that school doesn't necessarily take precedent once the recruiting process begins. It appears that McDowell grew up a pretty hardcore Michigan fan, and still is one. His demeanor seems pretty similar to Chris Wormley, with a much more stable coaching situation in front of him than Wormley had.

    Everything I read, he's just that. Some have already said and assume he'll commit this weekend.

    This would be like someone saying that Cam Burrows was never a huge OSU lean.
