Khoury reflects on visit

Traverse City (Mich.) West offensive lineman Rocko Khoury committed to Michigan after receiving a scholarship offer from the Maize and Blue at the summer camp in June. Making an official visit to Ann Arbor this weekend, the 6-6, 280 pounder enjoyed the experience, and got a chance to become better acquainted with his fellow Wolverines.

"It went good," he noted. "We got to hang out with the players, which was good. I got to meet a lot of the O-linemen. I got to meet the rest of the coaching staff. They're all great. I liked everyone there."

While on the trip, Khoury also got to meet strength and conditioning coach Mike Barwis, who has quickly become a prime attraction to recruiting visitors. Like many others, Khoury reported on the experience in a positive light.

"He's a character," he said. "He's a different kind of guy, which is good. He definitely knows how to get the best out of everyone."

The future of the Michigan offensive line was on hand over the weekend, with Khoury being joined on the visit by fellow commitments Dann O'Neill, Kurt Wermers, and Elliott Mealer. While it was not the first encounter for the group, if gave the players a chance to continue building their relationships.

"We're all pretty tight on the O-line," stated Khoury. "I've talked to most of them before, and talked on the computer too. But it was good to hang out with them all in person."

Rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, Khoury plans to play offensive guard for the Wolverines, but is ranked as the No. 41 offensive tackle prospect in the nation. He is also considered the No. 11 prospect in the state of Michigan.
