2013 Recruiting Update: Mike McCray Commits to Michigan

Now this is really starting to get good. Michigan's 14th official commitment in the 2013 signing class has arrived in the form of four-star Trotwood, Ohio linebacker Mike McCray. McCray, who lists at 6'3", 235, eventually came to his senses on Tuesday after his latest visit to Ann Arbor, despite being raised on Ohio State football from a young age.

While it's probably relevant that he had not received an actual offer from the Buckeyes, McCray was heavily targeted by Tennessee, Illinois, and Nebraska among others, so this is a very significant get for the Wolverines on the defensive side of the ball. McCray is the fifth Ohio prospect inked so far in the 2013 class and one of 14 Ohio players headed to Michigan over the next two seasons. Considering how important it is for Hoke to pilfer the state to the South as often as possible, this appears to be yet another small step in the right direction for UM on the recruiting scene.

Expect much more on McCray in the coming days here at Maize n Brew. For now, the highlights...
