Al Messerschmidt

Inside linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr. makes it commit number seven for the 2015 recruiting class as he gave his pledge to the coaching staff on Sunday.

Only a few days after receiving a quarterback commitment, the 2015 recruiting class had another dose of good news to share on Sunday.

Consensus 4-star linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr. pledged his commitment to the Wolverines on Sunday during his trip on campus. His commitment was confirmed via his Twitter page.

The 6-foot-2, 228-pound linebacker is from Lawrence Central High school in Indianapolis.

Kirkland is ranked as the fifth-best inside linebacker in this class and is the number two prospect coming out of his home state according 247 Composite rankings.

He had a bevy of offers, about 26 in total, that include schools from across the nation. Penn State was arguably the biggest contender but fell out of favor after receiving two inside linebacker commits in their 2015 class.

Kirkland is the seventh commit of the 2015 class which includes recent new member, quarterback Alex Malzone.
