At 6-foot-4, 240 lbs, Michigan Wolverines 3-star lineman recruit TJ Guy had been weighing offers from Boston College, Nebraska, Pitt, Syracuse, UConn and Virginia before committing to Ann Arbor.
He participated in a private workout with fellow recruits Louis Hansen and Casey Phinney, and impressed with his skills.
“It was definitely a good day,” Guy said. “I got to show you some moves and stuff. Nobody has really seen me. It was some good work. I never met these guys (Hansen and Phinney) in person, but we just hit it off right away. I can definitely tell we’re going to be a good group and jell well together.”
But for Guy, donning the maize and blue was the right choice, and he's looking forward to suiting up on the gridiron – as well as the classroom.
“It was the perfect fit,” Guy said. “All the coaches really care about me. It’s a great school from an education standpoint. I just want to help add to the program and win a national championship.”
Additionally, Guy is looking forward to playing under defensive coordinator Don Brown, for whom he had some pretty high praise.
“I had a film session with Coach Brown this week, actually,” Guy said. “I watched some of the defensive line stunts and how they got after the quarterback. I see it as a perfect fit. I think it’s the best defense in the country. I’m built perfectly for it. Coach Brown said he doesn’t know what he wants to do with me yet. He told me I could play anywhere along the defensive line.”
What are you expecting from Guy once he steps out onto the field at The Big House?
