I agree with some of the recruiting insiders, that one of the most important recruits in this class is IMG's 6'3 320 pound Center Cesar Ruiz. He is a 4 star center across the board and is considered one of the best centers in the country. Michigan needs a center and Cesar with a strong spring and fall camp, could move right into the starting position. He has been a strong Michigan lean for nearly a year and is expected to pick the Wolverines around 12:00 today.
His offer list includes: Florida, Alabama, Auburn, FSU, Clemson, Miami, Pitt, Oklahoma, Texas AM, Penn State, MSU and plenty of others. Cesar is also a Under Armour All American.
This could be a great way to start the week!
Here is his answer!

Cesear's IMG teammate LB Jordan Anthony is also expected to announce this week on Thursday.
- Update: Flint Southwestern's DE Deron Irving-Bey is going to announce today at 4:00. A Michigan Monday Multiple Commitment Day?
- We all wait to hear what Najee Harris is thinking. The rumor mill is he has sent in his early enrollment paperwork to both Michigan and Alabama. Which means he can enroll at either school in January.
- The offensive line is now a bit of a concern for the Wolverines, the next important commit after Cesar's announcement is Texas OT Chuck Filiaga. He could announce this month or wait to the Army All American game.
- Dylan McCaffrey won the Golden Helmet award. He will also be the next the McCaffrey to play a college football game as his brother Christian is skipping the Sun Bowl.
- Jimmy's coaching pipeline continues: Jimmie Dougherty a Michigan analyst on Harbaugh's staff just took the WR coaching position at Oregon.
