2014 No. 1 recruit Da'Shawn Hand visiting Michigan

Bud Elliott - SB Nation

Virginia defensive end Da'Shawn Hand is being chased by almost every big school in the nation, and he will take a visit to Ann Arbor to see Michigan the weekend of March 16th.

Fresh off a strong recruiting class in 2013, Brady Hoke and the Michigan Wolverines are back at it, and will host defensive end Da'Shawn Hand on the weekend of March 16. Hand is the top recruit in the 2014 recruiting class according to all the major services, and the 6'5, 240-pound Woodbridge (Va.) High School will be in Ann Arbor to take in spring practice.

From Bud Elliott's scouting report:

Hand is special because of his size and speed combo. At 6'5 and 250 pounds, he has excellent length and the frame to add a lot of good weight. Hand could potentially play at 280 pounds. Playing at 280 pounds as a 4-3 defensive end isn't all that out of the ordinary, but being able to do so with the incredible quickness makes Hand quite rare indeed.

Hand has taken unofficial visits with a number of the top college football programs in the nation, including Ohio State, Virginia Tech, and Alabama, among others. He already has a huge list of scholarship offers, but Michigan, Virginia Tech, Alabama, Florida and South Carolina are currently considered the leaders for his services.

During his junior season this past fall, he racked up 78 tackles, 40 tackles for a loss, and 16 sacks. He has since been selected to participate in the Under Armour All-American Game, as well as the Army All-American Game
