Michigan Tuesday: Wolverines Add Another 2012 DB

Big House BobSenior Analyst IIMay 31, 2011

With Ohio State's program flapping in the wind, now is the time for the Wolverines to make some "hay" in recruiting in the State of Ohio and in the Midwest. 

The first Ohio prospect to jump on board the Wolverines train (after Jim Tressel resigned) is Allen Gant, the son of former Wolverine Tony Gant, from outside Toledo, Ohio.  Allen is 6'2" and roughly 200 pounds and recently received a Michigan offer.   Allen didn't have an OSU offer but did have offers from WVU, Cincinnati, Stanford, Illinois, Boston College, Kentucky and MAC Schools.

Rivals lists Allen as a WR, but I assume Michigan is bringing him in as a DB and probably a safety prospect.  Allen is rated three stars by Scouts and not rated by Rivals.  This is the second DB in the 2012 class with Trey Richardson.

I like this pick up for a couple reasons. One, he is a Michigan legacy prospect and two, he is a local prospect living outside of Toledo in Sylvania, Ohio. 

This is Michigan's 13th commitment for the 2012 class.
