Michigan has received a commitment from four-star defensive tackle Jordan Elliott, according to his Twitter account.

Elliott is a four-star prospect and the 14th-ranked defensive tackle in the class of 2016, according to 247's Composite rankings. He is 6-foot-4, 305 pounds.

This is a big get for the Wolverines, beating off in-state schools like Texas and Baylor for his commitment. It also helps them establish a pipeline to the Houston area, where there are still quite a few prospects they have their eyes on.

As far as what it means in the pursuit of Rashan Gary, it is hard to imagine a scenario where they would not have room for him. He is too special and versatile a talent to not bring in.

He took his official visit to Ann Arbor on Saturday for the game against Ohio State.
