2014 OLB Chase Winovich commits to Michigan

Michigan added 2014 outside linebacker Chase Winovich on Saturday, bolstering its class to 12 highly-rated members.

The Michigan recruiting class of 2014 earned its 12th member Saturday, as three-star outside linebacker Chase Winovich (Clairton, Pa.) committed to Michigan.

Rumors involving Winovich’s announcement swirled on Twitter late Friday night, and current Michigan commit Wilton Speight tweeted the following at 12:08 a.m. Saturday:

Clearly, Speight may well have been hinting about Winovich’s announcement.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Thomas Jefferson product held offers from a number of Big Ten teams. Michigan offered him on April 8, and he has since visited the Wolverines twice dating back to April 13.

Winovich's commitment, however, ultimately came down to Michigan, Pitt, and Ohio State. After visiting Pitt earlier in the week, some murmurs spread that he may had silent verbaled to the Panthers. Instead, he gave it until the end of the week, where he spent the early part of the weekend solidifying his decision before ultimately announcing in the Wolverines' favor. Upon committing, Winovich told ESPN's Chantel Jennings that he felt like Michigan was his "destiny".

The early speculation on Winovich is that he is a project player who will need a lot of work in the weight and film room, but the natural ability is certainly there.
