Today was a Festivus for the rest of us. And as Frank Costanza once said: “It’s a Festivus miracle!”
Michigan has now nabbed two 2017 four-star linebackers in two days, with Jordan Anthony committing yesterday, and now Drew Singleton announces his commitment today. You can watch his commitment video here.
Singleton is the 66th ranked player in the country, the third ranked outside linebacker and the first ranked player in the state of New Jersey, according to 247sports.com.
The four-star recruit, however, comes with some baggage. Singleton tore his ACL and was only able to play in one game during his senior season in 2016, which ironically came in a game against St. Frances (Maryland) that was played at the University of Michigan. He had 12 total tackles (six assisted, six solo) in that game.
It seems as if he has unfinished business at The Big House.
Paramus Catholic High School has been a popular place for Michigan to recruit the past few years, and that is exactly where Singleton played in high school. Michigan has now acquired the top player in New Jersey three of the last four years, with Rashan Gary in the 2016 class and Jabrill Peppers in the 2014 class being the top player from the state.
Michigan and Michigan State were the only two schools Singleton had official visits to. He officially visited Michigan State on Dec. 2 and Michigan on Dec. 10.
