Kai-Leon Herbert, a 2017 four-star offensive lineman, has committed to Michigan.

Herbert, from American Heritage in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, had offers to Florida, Michigan, Miami, Tennessee, Auburn, Mississippi State, California, Colorado, Duke, Florida Atlantic, Goergia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Marshall, Maryland, N.C. State, North Carolina, Ole Miss, UCF, USC, USF, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. He was recruited to Michigan by Tim Drevno and Jedd Fisch.

The Wolverines made a big jump for Herbert after he attended Michigan’s satellite camp at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauerdale on June 3. Then, he visited Michigan during the big man camp on June 17.

The 6-foot-5, 285-pound lineman went with Michigan over Florida and Miami (FL), who were the teams in his Top 3. Herbert is the 166th overall player in the Class of 2017, 22nd ranked offensive tackle and is 31st in the state of Florida, per the 247 Composite.

Herbert is the fourth offensive tackle to commit for 2017. Along with Herbert, Michigan has added four-star JaRaymond Hall, three-star Joel Honigford and three-star Andrew Stueber.

Michigan has 2017 commitments from Dylan McCaffrey (QB), Aubrey Soloman (DT), Luiji Vilain (WDE), Josh Ross (ILB), JaRaymond Hall (OT), Corey Malone-Hatcher (WDE), O’Maury Samuels (RB), J’Marick Woods (S), A.J.
