Sheehy decides to stay in-state
Written by Matt Pargoff   

Michigan has already placed a great deal of emphasis on recruiting the 2014 class of juniors, with many offers already being made in the summer months. One prospect that had shown a strong interest in the Maize and Blue was Milwaukee (Wisc.) Marquette defensive end Conor Sheehy.

Standing in at 6-4, 255 pounds, Sheehy camped at Michigan in June and was offered a scholarship by the Wolverines soon after. He made return trip in July, reporting back favorably on the experience. However, despite the strong interest, he has decided to make a very early decision in favor of Wisconsin.

Sheehy is the fourth prospect to commit to the Badgers for the 2014 recruiting class, joining fellow in-state linemen Jaden Gault and George Panos, as well as state of Michigan quarterback prospect Chance Stewart.

Michigan has one commitment so far for 2014, with linebacker Michael Ferns of Saint Clairsville (Ohio) having pledged to the Wolverines.

Given that it is still extremely early for 2014 prospect, the loss of Sheehy should not be seen as a major setback. Michigan has already offered several other prospects at the position, including Malik McDowell of Detroit (Mich.) Loyola, Da'Shawn Hand of Woodbridge (Va.) and Bryan Mone of Salt Lake City (Utah) Highland.
