Michigan Grabs 18th Commitment in 2017 Class

According to Brandon Brown of Rivals (FREE), 2017 three-star weak-side defensive end and outside linebacker Kwity Paye (RI) has committed to the Michigan Wolverines, making him the 18th commitment in the 2017 class. This comes on the same day that he decommitted from Boston College, where he had been committed to since December.

The 247Composite has Paye as the top-ranked overall player in Rhode Island and 46th overall at his position in the nation. Brown listed Paye's close relationship with defensive coordinator Don Brown as a big reason for the flip.
