Jordan Paskorz said Hampton's football team will have a new defense for next season, one in which Paskorz will play a position that is a cross between defensive end and linebacker.
"It's actually the same position I'll be playing at Michigan," Paskorz said.
Paskorz, a junior at Hampton, made a verbal commitment to the Michigan Wolverines Wednesday while visiting the university with his parents. Paskorz (6 feet 4, 230 pounds) also had scholarship offers from Pitt, Virginia, Minnesota, Bowling Green and Ohio.
Paskorz had visited Michigan two other times and had the Wolverines at the top of his list ever since they offered a scholarship in April.
"I felt like there was no need to wait around," Paskorz said. "I had the scholarships I wanted. I don't think there was a need to go out and try to get more."
Paskorz met Wednesday with Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez.
"That's basically what sealed the deal," Paskorz said. "The first time I went up there this year [in April], I didn't get to meet him. This time I talked to him and I really felt like he wanted me there."
Paskorz's brother, Steve, is a fullback at Notre Dame.
Opinion on Jordan Paskorz: He's a good player, not a great player. He didn't have a slew of scholarship offers, but enough that he had some variety. Some schools weren't enthralled with him, but others like him because of that "P" word - potential. He has good size and has run the 40 in 4.74 seconds. Time will tell about him and a lot of eyes will be on him this season to see if he takes his game up another level. Time will tell if he reaches that potential.
