Rashan Gary is officially a Michigan Wolverine after arriving in Ann Arbor, Michigan on June 15th to start his career on and off the field at the college level, according to Steve Lorenz of 247Sports.

From Paramus Catholic High School in Paramus, New Jersey, the 6-foot-5, 295-pound defensive lineman was the No. 1 overall player in both the 247Sports Composite and 247Sports rankings. Gary signed with Michigan on National Signing Day over Clemson, USC, Auburn, Ole Miss, Alabama, Army, Boston College, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Maryland, Miami (FL), Michigan State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Carolina, Syracuse, Temple, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin. Gary was recruited to wear the Maize and Blue by Chris Partridge and Greg Mattison.

"That's hard placing expectations on a young man like that, but that's one guy from all indications, from watching him play in all-star games, from his visits to campus, let's just say I'm pretty encouraged we're going to see that young man very early in his career," Don Brown said regarding Gary and his abilities.

The 2016 five-star will get immediate action on the field and will make a difference on what could be the best defensive line in college football this season. The front four will most likely include Gary, Chris Wormley, Taco Charlton and Bryan Mone.
