Parrker Westphal will be on campus Sunday to speak with the coaches and take in the basketball game against Penn State which should get the Wolverines back on track. Westphal is a highly coveted cornerback with good size at 6'1" and really good speed, reportedly in the 4.45 range. He has maintained that Michigan is the school that all others are measured against, but he refuses to officially call the Wolverines his leader. This weekend could change that.
Daniel Helm has a much more structured visit planned. Helm told me his exact plans, "I'm going to have dinner with Coach Hecklinski Sunday night and then we'll do a brief tour with my family. After that I'll have a more in depth tour Monday. After the tour I'll meet with the coaches, go over film, and meet with some academic advisors I think." Helm seems to have it figured out already and will be quite busy this weekend but I plan to chat with him after the visit to see how it all went.

This weekend's visitor list isn't swollen like next weeks will be, but all of the prospects visiting are very solid players with very realistic chances to become Wolverines. I think it is worth mentioning that Derrick Green will also be on campus this weekend which can't hurt. I don't believe a commitment will happen this weekend but Michigan could position itself very well with Westphal and Helm especially. I believe Michigan leads for Weber and Alabi right now already and the visit this weekend should only help that standing.
