Class of 2017 offensive guard Jess Speight has committed to Michigan as a preferred walk-on. His brother, Wilton Speight, is the quarterback for the Wolverines.

Speight, who attends Collegiate High School in Richmond, Virginia, tweeted the news on Thursday night.

He has offers from James Madison, Michigan, North Carolina State, Old Dominion, Richmond, and William & Mary.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound offensive lineman is one of five captains on Collegiate’s team, which just won a Virginia State Championship.

Speight is the first preferred walk-on commitment in the 2017 class for Michigan. He will look to earn a scholarship in Ann Arbor under coach Jim Harbaugh.
