Update: Michigan got it's third commitment of the weekend today, as OL and UConn commit Nolan Ulizio has flipped to the Wolverines
Michigan landed two commits on Saturday:
- 4 star and #4 rated Pro Style QB in the country and #105 player overall (Rivals) in Zach Gentry. Zach was a long time Texas commit and Jimmy worked his magic by visiting him on Wednesday, getting him to visit this weekend and Zach committing during half time of the Michigan basketball game. Zach had turned down the likes of Alabama, TCU, Nebraska, Tennessee, OK State, Louisville and others. Zach is 6'6 and 230 pounds and is Michigan's 2nd QB in this class, Alex Malzone is already enrolled.
- Did I mention Nebraska? Michigan flipped former Nebraska commit and 3 star DE Ruben Jones from Florida on Saturday as well. Ruben is 6'4 and 225 pounds which is small for DE (he is smaller then the QB commit on Saturday!). He will be a speed guy WDE in DJ's defense and maybe even a OLB. He is also ticketed it for a redshirt as he needs a year in the weight room and training table.
BTW: Chris Clark is at UCLA this weekend, who some insiders feel might have a slight lead over the Wolverines right now. Having two big gun slingers in this class now has to be a positive in his recruitment. While that push the pendulum towards the Wolverines? We will find out on signing day.
If Michigan is really only going to take 12 players in this class only
