After having a fantastic showing at the SMSB camp in Detroit and once again at the Michigan camp, deWeaver earned himself an offer from the school he wanted the most.

deWeaver is a tall, strong armed signal caller that can make plays with both his arm and feet, if need be. However, he is much more of a dime throwing pocket passer than some may think. He has grown a ton of the past year (up to 6\’4\’\’ now) and has tightened up his mechanics to ensure his place as one of the best quarterbacks in the Midwest. And after another year of high school film and camping, he will likely be ranked even higher on a national scale. 

Height: 6\’4\’\’

Weight: 205lbs

Offers: Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisville, Toledo, Western Kentucky.

Rankings: Scout (NR) – 247 (4*, #13 QB) – Rivals (NR) – ESPN (NR)


As for the Rest of the Class 

With deWeaver and OT Erik Swenson in the fold, Michigan is off to a good start with the 2016 class. Having your future quarterback and left tackle in the mold allows the coaches to focus on the skill positions and defense for over a year and a half.

There should be somewhere around 16-20 spots in the class, which will all hang on how the team does on the field this season. Success could mean a top 10 class thanks to the interest the staff has received from some of the class\’ top players. But either way, the Midwest is stacked this year in terms of talent so this class should be a good one, to say the least.
