Latrup High School’s Rondell Biggs (Southfield, Mich.) is holding out for an offer from his childhood favorite, Michigan. But if the Wolverines don’t offer him a scholarship soon, the Badgers have a great chance at landing him.
The 6-4, 255 defensive end/linebacker had a disappointing season, as Latrup finished 2-7, but he had 13 sacks and more than 80 tackles primarily from the rush end position.
There’s no doubt if the Wolverines offer him a full ride, he will accept with open arms.
“I kind of want to stay close to home. If Michigan offers me, I’m going to go there. I’m taking a visit there (this weekend) and they call me every week,” Biggs said.
Biggs said if he doesn’t get a Michigan offer, Wisconsin is a solid possibility. He has an official visit scheduled for Dec. 14, but he’s also considering Michigan State, Toledo and Penn State.
“I’m not really sure about Wisconsin, but I like the program,” Biggs said. “I’ve been watching them for a while. I’m looking forward to seeing the campus, meeting the players and seeing what the team is like.”
Biggs hopes to study something in business or electronics, but he hasn’t decided on a major yet. Right now, he’s focused on making the best decision for his football career. Biggs feels he can make a huge impact wherever he goes.
“I just make big plays,” Biggs said. “I chase people down, cause fumbles, deflect passes and get sacks.”
Biggs has attended several Michigan games this year, and the Toledo-Western Michigan game. He plans on setting up a couple more visits following the trip to Wisconsin Dec. 14.
