Michigan picked up their 18th (19 if you include probable grayshirt Jeremy Clark) commitment of the 2012 class this afternoon when Akron (OH) safety Jarrod Wilson committed to the Wolverines. The 6-2, 190-pound prospect is a consensus four-star recruit among the four recruiting services, and chose U-M over offers from Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan State, Pitt, Stanford, UCLA, West Virginia, Indiana, Syracuse, and several other schools. Wilson projects to play free safety at the collegiate level, and should round out Michigan’s defensive backfield class along with cornerbacks Terry Richardson and Anthony Standifer and strong safety Allen Gant. This is obviously a great pickup for Brady Hoke, as I probably don’t need to point out that it’s been a while since the Wolverines got quality play from their safeties, and Wilson looks like he could be a very good one.
More will be coming from Jack in the near future (and not much else from me, as I’m on vacation out west right now), so instead of adding much more detail I’ll reference you to the highlight tape above, Tim’s MGoBlog commitment post, and the full class list below:
