Tyler Wiegers takes in Michigan win
"Its been great," Wiegers told GoBlueWolverine. "The two losses were pretty tough but we've been progressing throughout the season and getting better. Offense has been developing a lot so we feel really confident going into the playoffs. We're just excited to see how we do."
Off the field, Wiegers recruiting interest continues to grow. Having previously visited East Lansing for the Michigan State/Boise State game to kick off the season, Wiegers made his way to Ann Arbor Saturday to witness the yearly clash between in-state rivals.
"I thought it would be interesting, just cause of the history the past couple years," Wiegers said. "I was really excited to just get a feel for how Michigan plays and how they do everything, so I was pretty happy with everything I saw. It was pretty cool."
Admittedly Wiegers grew up a fan of the Wolverines, but with relationships in place at both Michigan and Michigan State the Country Day quarterback tried to play it cool during the game. But with a packed house, loud atmosphere and photo finish, Wiegers found it hard to contain himself late.
"I was rooting for Michigan in the end," said Wiegers. "I like to see the State players do well too just cause I met a couple of them, and some of the State players went to my school—but in the end I was rooting for Michigan."
"I was jumping around," added Wiegers. "It was pretty crazy."
Wiegers watched the game with Walnut Ridge (OH) High School defensive end Robert Bowers and also found himself catching up with several commitments and recruits he's grown familiar with over the years.
"That was definitely cool to see some other players," said Wiegers. "I know Shane from some camps and stuff. It was cool to see them, catch up with them and see how their season is going."
With Morris all but signed in Michigan's class of 2013, the 2014 quarterback class is a bit of an unknown at this point. With no offers out, Wiegers and the Wolverines haven't gotten into detail about a scholarship.
"Not yet," said Wiegers. "They just said they like me and to keep working hard, so hopefully something comes of that. But they haven't really mentioned anything about an offer yet."
"I think it definitely helped just talking to the coaches and keeping me in their minds," added Wiegers on the visit. "Just making sure that they know I'm interested, so I think that's the big thing with that."
