Michigan Football Recruiting: Wolverines Land Great Value in Former PSU Commit
Don't look now Ohio State fans, Michigan's already stacked recruiting class just got better.
Former Penn State commit and 4-star cornerback Ross Douglas withdrew his verbal from Penn State following the sanctions issued by NCAA president Mark Emmert. With only one day passing since he reopened his recruitment, he announced on Twitter that he's found a new school.
Just committed to Michigan!!!! #GoBlue— Ross Douglas (@RDouglas_21) July 24, 2012
With the addition, Michigan now has 23 total commitments, including 17 4-star recruits. And more importantly, the Wolverines add another cornerback to a class that already has two cornerbacks in it. Both Gareon Conley and Jourdan Lewis have already committed to the Wolverines.
Iron sharpens iron, and with all three cornerbacks being labeled as 4-star athletes by 247sports.com, the Wolverines should see great competition in the secondary for years to come.
While Douglas might lack a certain burst in speed, his 5'10", 181-pound frame will allow him to play physical with receivers on the line. ESPN's scouting report on Douglas has him as a 4-star, and it says that he plays and pursues the ball with great instincts. That sounds an awful lot like LSU's Honey Badger, Tyrann Mathieu.
But let the comparisons stop there. After all, we have yet to see what Douglas can do on a college football field. However, his skills do look promising as a young cornerback, and considering that he'll receive competition right away from Conley and Lewis, it should make him that much better.
Watch out Buckeye nation, Michigan's recruiting class isn't showing any signs of letting up.
