One of the top in-state recruits, Valdez Showers, will make his collegiate decision in the next few weeks as he's targeted a pre season commitment. The three star athlete narrowed it down to six earlier this month, but admits that Florida, Michigan, MSU and Northwestern are ahead of Iowa and Auburn.
Showers also claims there is a lot of pressure to stay in-state, especially when it comes to the Wolverines. He loves the tradition and exposure that Michigan has, but admits he's much closer with the Spartan's coaching staff.
If he were to venture out of Michigan, my guess would have to be Florida. While Northwestern has great academics, I think he realizes that from a football standpoint, Florida and UM have much more to offer.
