A player who has committed to one school helping recruit another player to that school is nothing new.
But Michigan commit Corey Malone-Hatcher might have upped the game to another level.
Malone-Hatcher, a four-star defensive end from St. Joseph, Mich., has pushed out a hype video trying to entice four-star wide receiver Tarik Black from Cheshire Academy (Conn.) to commit to the Wolverines.
He also has urged Michigan fans to get #TBtoAA trending on Twitter.
And let’s just say the Michigan fans are taking that as a challenge:
Some other interested folks also have gotten involved, including Michigan five-star quarterback commit Dylan McCaffrey from Colorado.
Black, an Army All-American, made an official visit to Ann Arbor on Sept. 3 and then was at Auburn for an official visit last weekend.
“We’re pretty good friends,” Black said Tuesday of Malone-Hatcher. “He’s a good dude.”
Black also was impressed with the devotion of the fans.
