Michigan commit Tristan Bounds wants to kick the s— out of Ohio State
The rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State is alive and well, even to those who are very new to it.
That’s the case for Wolverines recruit Tristan Bounds. The three-star offensive tackle committed to Michigan this week, and immediately made clear that one of his goals on campus is to turn the tide in the school’s rivalry with the Buckeyes.
“After I take a couple days to take it in and realize what I really just did, and that’s commit to one of the best universities in the country as well as a football powerhouse, I’m definitely going to get on the recruiting trail hard,” Bounds told E.J. Holland on The Wolverine Podcast, via Eleven Warriors. “I’ve been pretty adamant about this. I don’t want to lose any games. I want to win national championships. I want to kick the s— out of Ohio State. Those are my goals. The best class that we can get is going to help us do that.”
This is certainly a goal of everyone in the Wolverine program, even if it hasn’t happened lately. Michigan has lost 15 of 16 to Ohio State, one of the most lopsided periods of the rivalry for either team. Maybe this is the attitude Michigan needs, especially after a Buckeyes player had this to say recently.
