Michigan’s “Coaching Staff Dream Team” Stands Out to Culpepper

On Wednesday, Michigan hosted a large group of top recruits out of Miami, Florida on a rare unofficial spring visit. One of those visitors was 2017 Miami Carol City (FL) DB Naytron Culpepper, who ended up having a great time during his trip up north.

“The visit went great talk to the defensive coordinator and one of the DB coaches.” Culpepper said. “(We toured) The stadium, the indoor facility, the weight room, basically everything.”

As for what stood out the most during his trip, out of everything he saw and experienced, it was the coaching staff that really made an impact on him.

“Definitely talking to the coaches and all the NFL experience they have on the coaching staff. It’s like a dream coaching staff dream team,” he said. Adding that he reconnected with new Michigan defensive analyst and former Flanagan high school head coach, Devin Bush Sr. “He toured me (around) and gave me some wise words for the future.”

One thing that most people wonder about southern recruits is how they like and look at the weather in the Great Lakes State. Well, for Culpepper, it didn’t bother the Miami native.

“It really wasn’t a issue to me I’ll get you use to it if anything.”

Though Culpepper is yet to receive an offer from the Michigan coaching staff, he got the feeling that the staff has “major interest”. And if an offer comes through, he let me know that UM will jump into his top schools.
