With an upcoming visit to West Virginia and one official visit to UCLA already passed, the 2010 cornerback prospect has interest from a number of schools with Ohio State being a recent addition. He currently favors Michigan over Pittsburgh, UCLA, West Virginia, and Ohio State. Other visits may include Michigan and Penn State towards the end of the college football season.
Christian is a tall cornerback that can use a year in college to improve his recovery speed and his strength but has turned enough heads in high school to get the attention of many of the top programs in the mid-west. He has great play making ability and likes to bump receivers off the line of scrimmage to disrupt their routes.
He could play right away at which ever program he selects as a special teams coverage man or as a second string defensive back. With Pittsburgh and West Virginia near by, the talented prospect has made numerous trips to see games unofficially. In fact he travelled into Ohio to see the USC vs. Ohio State match-up earlier this season. Michigan’s resurgence on the field has helped them to stay atop his list of leaders since early spring.
