"It was surprising for me because I wasn't expecting it," said Sypniewski. "But they gave it to me and I accepted. I'm glad they picked me because I know I can do the job."
Coming off a 23-20 Sugar Bowl victory over Virginia Tech, a potential Heisman candidate quarterback, the number one ranked recruiting class and the opportunity to compete for a national championship, it seems like Sypniewski will be joining the Wolverines at just the perfect time.
"Coach Hoke has just been awesome. To go 11-2 his first season, the 2013 class… My freshman year is just going to be an awesome year," he said.
When it comes to his decision to commit, Sypniewski stressed the atmosphere of the Big House left him amazed at the overall culture of the program.
"I went to about eight or nine games last year and it gets better every time," he said. "And they're adding even more people so it's just going to be even bigger."
In regards to Michigan being college football's all time winningest program, Sypniewski had a simple yet declarative statement.
"It speaks for itself."
