Four-star CB Edward Paris made public his commitment to LSU on Monday, becoming the sixth member of…
Paris Building Relationship with Michigan
"Right now I am just happy to be recruited. I have had head coaches from Baylor, Texas A & M, Texas, Michigan and Nebraska visit my school. As a whole I have been impressed with it, as well as the overall recruiting process."
Looking at the 6'2 195 pounder who has good size for a corner, you wonder what his strengths and weaknesses are. Well he didn't mind sharing his positives, and certainly not his negatives to work to get better.
"My assets at corner are my long arms, I am very physical and I have great cover skills. What I do need to work on to get better is at run support, and I will work to make that part of my game stronger."
Michigan noticed those traits long ago, as evidenced by them putting a scholarship on the table last year. Offensive line coach Darrell Funk is the point man in the Wolverines' pursuit, and has made a positive impression on the Lone Star State standout.
"I have talked with Coach Funk. My first impression of him is he is a down to earth guy, so right now we are just building a relationship with each other. He talked with me about their facilities, the fan base, and the school. He wants me to come up for a junior day to get me on campus."
Paris has had a chance to see Michigan play on TV against Alabama -- not a game that the Wolverines enjoyed, but Edward still seen some positives in the defeat.
"I liked their togetherness as a team. They played as a team and lost as a team -- during that time they stayed together thru it all. They played cover two same as we play, and I just remember how extremely fast Denard Robinson is."
The recruiting process is going to be a little bit different for Paris as he is trying to enroll early in college by January. So a lot of things will be moving very fast for him, to get to know colleges and their coaching staffs to find out what is best for him.
"I am trying to graduate early so I can get on the field early when I go to college. I want to learn things fast and start my college credits early, but I know it is going to take hard work and I am ready for that. I want a school with solid academics, a good football atmosphere, with good coaches and a good strength and conditioning coach. The depth chart does not matter because wherever I go I have to compete for a spot."
