Chris Wormley - A Michigan Verbal

Read in the Blade that Toledo Whitmer's Chris Wormley(DE) verbaled to Michigan last night. Although he listed other schools, Chris has, for the most part, been a "Michigan guy" all along. Most coaches were aware of that from the beginning, including Ohio State and Notre Dame.

I blogged Chris back in May and nothing has changed. Long and can get off blocks and get up field. He will make his money playing inside. Okay as a defensive end, but will grow and move inside. Gets pad under pad. Good leverage. Being a three sport guy, athleticism and size have gotten him a long ways. Once he gets into a college strength program, he will develop his upper body strength.

Chris is a quiet guy. Some take that as a "cockiness," or lack of enthusiasm, but not so, just quiet. I have watched him play basketball, track, and football. Also watched him at an OSU camp. State ranked shot and discus competitor. Not a "rah-rah guy," but very consistent.

Like with many prospects he is not a finished product and has much upside. Best football is ahead. Needs to dominate some games against bigger competition, and not just against some of the smaller programs in the Toledo area. Did see him against Massillon in the playoffs. More than held his own, and Massillon is a pretty good program.

If you read the older blog, you know I like him. Looking forward to seeing him play this fall.
