Zach Banner 'blown away' by Michigan 

September, 12, 2011
ESPNU 150 offensive lineman Zach Banner (Lakewood Wash./Lakes) took his first official visit of the year this past weekend to Michigan and the Wolverines made a big impression on the talented athlete.

Even with their rich history and tradition, the Wolverines always seemed like a dark horse in the race for Banner. After his weekend visit to Ann Arbor, that no longer appears to be the case.

"Man, I was blown away," Banner said. "For me, the biggest highlight was just being in the Big House. I felt like a fan, not a recruit when I was watching the game. I was so into it because of the crowd around me. They were the most loyal fans I've ever seen and the game atmosphere there was like nothing I've ever seen.
