The Wolverines seem to hold the lead for recruit Armani Reeves over Ohio State.
Armani Reeves is one of the better cornerback recruits in the 2012 cycle. Out of West Roxbury (Ma.) Catholic Memorial High School, Reeves was once a Penn State commitment. The sex abuse scandal changed that, and Reeves decommitted, opening things back up. Reeves holds offers from Arizona, Arkansas, Boston College, Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, North Carolina, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, Stanford, Utah, Virginia and Wake Forest. But he seems to be favoring Michigan and Ohio State.
And the Wolverines seem to be of particular interest to the 5'10", 185-pound cornerback, as SB Nation Detroit reports:
Michigan defensive coordinator Greg Mattison visited Reeves on Tuesday night. On Monday night, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and some of his assistants visited Reeves. These visits followed a visit from Michigan head coach Brady Hoke over the weekend.
Of course, Ohio State has an advantage in teammate Camren Williams, a Buckeye commitment.
Interestingly, Reeves is from Leeds, Al., and is the cousin of Charles Barkley.
