Michigan Football Recruiting: Wolverines Land 15th Commitment for Class of 2013

RJ LuchenbillCorrespondent IIIMarch 10, 2012

The Michigan Wolverines have kept their torrid recruiting efforts going, as they've landed cornerback Gareon Conley, their 15th commitment for the Class of 2013.

Conley is rated four stars by Scout and three stars by 247Sports. He's currently not rated yet by Rivals or ESPN.

While Conley only had offers from Michigan, Northwestern, West Virginia and Toledo (according to 247Sports), Allen Trieu from Scout.com speaks very highly of the player from Massillon, Ohio:


"Conley has great length for a corner. He runs, changes directions and shows the fluidity to play the position even though he's a little taller than average. He has outstanding instincts and gets the jump on routes because of his timing and anticipation. Shows comfort in both man and zone schemes. Has good ball skills and height helps him with taller receivers. Needs to get stronger, but is a solid, aggressive tackler."


As Trieu indicated in his comment, Conley definitely has the height for the position at 6'2", but he weighs just 170 pounds. Conley will have his entire senior year to grow even taller and possibly put on some more weight.

Brady Hoke and his staff have approximately 10 more scholarships to be accepted before closing out their Class of 2013.
