Cullen Christian, a 6'0", 190-pound CB out of Pittsburgh, has been a Wolverines fan all his life. Now he will suit up for the Maize and Blue next year.
The Michigan football team received some much needed good news when the No. 3 ranked CB in the country verbally committed to the Wolverines for next fall.
His offer list was long, and included names like Ohio State, Pitt, WVU, and UCLA. He is rated four stars by both Rivals and Scout and is the 88th player in the nation per Rivals .
The only negative that has been written about him, is that he might not have elite speed and could move to safety, to which I respond, "Yes!" Michigan needs great cover corners and great safeties so nothing but upside for Cullen in Ann Arbor. I expect him and Justin Turner to see the field a lot next year.

Zoltan has been named to ESPN 's Academic All-American Team.
Two Players Thrown Off Michigan State
Junior safety Roderick Jenrette and sophomore running back Glenn Winston have been removed from the team. Winston saw a lot of time at running back this year and spent some of his last offseason in jail, but was allowed to come back and play. The dismissals seemed to come from a fight on the MSU campus.

Miami Dolphins Owner Backs RichRod
Stephen Ross (see name of the new Business School), who currently has Bill Parcells, Chad Henne, and Jake Long on the pay roll, says Rich Rodriguez needs more time in Ann Arbor.
"If he has a bad year next year, he'll have a lot more pressure," Ross told the Associated Press , before the Wolverines lost to Ohio State on Saturday. "I don't think he has anything to worry about right now in my mind."
"People take shots at him for whatever reason," Ross said. "Some people like to beat people when they're down. I think he's a great man and he's been a winner wherever he's been. It's just that a lot of people don't like change. I think it will all work out."
