When not occupying a position in the daily headlines, Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh could be found within Schembechler Hall, feverishly working to improve the Michigan football team before its 2016 season opener against Hawaii. Harbaugh and the Wolverines hosted Hawaii for a 63-3 drubbing in week one, but the Maize and Blue also played host to a large contingent of talented recruits.
After months of hype surrounding the UM program, Harbaugh showed many recruits what playing football in Ann Arbor could be like. The Big House was packed full of excited fans once again, and prospects such as Worcester (Massachusetts) Shepherd Hill athlete Kevin Mensah gained a firsthand dose of 2016 Michigan football.
Today’s U caught up with Mensah to gauge his reaction to the new-look Wolverines after their blowout victory in week one.
“It’s been really good,” Mensah said. “I have offers from Bryant and Kentucky Christian, but Boston College, Michigan, UConn, UMass, Northwestern and Syracuse been very interested.”
During the season, Mensah hopes to visit, Boston College, UConn, UMass, Syracuse and “hopefully” Michigan once more. While at Michigan the first time, Mensah had the opportunity to bond with Brendan McKeon, the younger brother of Michigan tight end Sean McKeon, and four-star wide receiver Tarik Black.
Black is one of the most coveted players on campus for Michigan this past weekend, and the Wolverines are in good shape with the Connecticut wideout, who figures to be a dominant player in the collegiate ranks.
