Michigan has reportedly secured a commitment from 2015 quarterback Zach Gentry (Albuquerque, New Mexico), according to Chris Balas of Rivals.

Gentry, who prior to his official visit to Ann Arbor this weekend was committed to Texas, is a four-star prospect and the eighth-ranked pro-style quarterback in the class of 2015, per 247's composite rankings.
Speculation over the last few weeks as to whether Jim Harbaugh would take another quarterback in this cycle picked up a few days back when they were able to schedule an official visit for Gentry to Michigan. Radio silence from the Gentry camp seemed to signal that a flip to the Wolverines was not a pipe dream, backed up by the fact that Texas has thrown their name back into the mix for five-star quarterback Kyler Murray.
Gentry gives the Wolverines their second commitment of Saturday and eighth overall in the 2015 class.
This story is developing.
Update: Scout's Sam Webb says Gentry gave his commitment to the Wolverines at halftime of the basketball game vs. Wisconsin.
