While he can play both S and CB Michigan is recruiting him for the CB position. He currently holds over 30 offers but lists South Carolina, Michigan and Rutgers at the top. Coach Mallory has stopped in to visit the talented player and Shumate has come away impressed. Shumate is very excited about the new coaching staff and the emphasis they place on big physical players so he’s certainly giving Michigan a look.
