Xaverian defensive tackle Maurice Hurst Jr. has verbally committed to the University of Michigan. Michigan was one of several outstanding scholarship offers that he received including Boston College, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina and Virginia. He was recruited as a defensive tackle by Michigan coaches, Mallory and Mattison.
For Maurice, the decision to go with University of Michigan was an easy one, “It’s just the right fit for me,” he says. “It feels like Xaverian but on a larger scale—a balance of great football but also challenging academics.”
“Maurice has been a great player for Xaverian,” says Charlie Stevenson, director of athletics and head football coach. “His size, quickness and athleticism make him the top player in Massachusetts and the northeast. We are very happy for him that he has chosen the University of Michigan and wish him all the best. We are thankful that we will have one more year with him and are hopeful for a great season.”
