Michigan's 2013 class is already so stacked with talent and commitments that we wondered who would be the lucky few to fill out the remaining spots.

According to Tom VanHaaren of ESPN's Wolverine Nation, one of those remaining spots will go to Channing Stribling of Mathews, North Carolina.

The 6'2", 170-pound, 247Sports.com 3-star cornerback has reportedly committed to Michigan one day after receiving his offer.

VanHaaren writes:

After camping at Michigan for three days and receiving an offer on Wednesday, 2013 cornerback Channing Stribling decided to commit to Michigan ... The 6'2" corner performed very well throughout camp and impressed everyone on hand. He has a great combination of size and speed ... He shut down receivers and adjusted to the coaching that was given to him. His initial plan was to wait a week and think things over with his parents, but he decided that he didn't need to wait any longer.

And waiting could've been dangerous for a kid whose other top offers were from Ball State, Hampton and Howard. Nothing against any of those schools, but they're not Michigan.

The Wolverines know what they're doing and must've known that an offer would've likely resulted in a commitment. Their class now has 22 players committed, and there are still seven months to go until national signing day.

But this is the way Hoke likes to operate, as he proved last year, and it seems to be a solid method that produces results.

Stribling is the third cornerback to commit to Michigan in the 2013 class and fourth defensive back overall.

He'll have his work cut out for him to get on the field, but the Wolverines just landed another guy they wanted.
