Four-star DB enjoying Michigan

Four-star Pennsylvania cornerback Cullen Christian is scheduled to hold a press conference announcing his college destination on Tuesday. For now he's enjoying his last official visit.

The 6-foot, 180-pound defensive back from Pittsburgh (Pa.) Penn Hills, currently ranked the No. 6 corner in the nation by Rivals.com, is still at Michigan on his official visit. Judging by his comments in this interview with Rivals.com, the Wolverines are helping their cause.

"I'm still up here now," Christian said on Sunday night. "When I first got here we went to the game, then we went out to eat afterward. Then we went over to coach Rich Rodriguez's house and we were over there for a little bit talking to the coaches. There were a lot of recruits there. It was really just us talking to them and chilling there. Then we went out with some of the hosts and stuff like that.

"Today we went out to eat for lunch. I wanted to talk to some of the coaches, and we were in the weight room talking to the coaches. I was talking one-on-one with my position coach and we watched some of my film. After that we went back to the hotel and took a nap, and then we went out to eat again."

Christian plans on heading back to Pennsylvania on Monday morning. His short time in Michigan has been memorable, and has made his decision even more difficult than it already was.

"I like this trip the most," he said. "Either this or UCLA. I just had a good time because it's a different kind of people up here. It seems like the fans are extra into it. Out here the football team is the biggest thing in this town. Everybody knows about the football team. The fans are probably like with them before they even mess with the Lions or the Pistons. That's what I think.

"Their fans are more into it. I was walking down the street and people knew who I was. They were asking me for autographs. I enjoyed the fans. The game had like 110 or 112,000 fans. Where else are you gonna go like that every week?

"Also, it's real diverse up here. It's a whole bunch of different people."

Despite having a press conference scheduled for Tuesday, Christian said he has not made his decision yet.
