In-state class of 2016 running back Matt Falcon (Southfield, Michigan) has committed to play for the Michigan Wolverines, according to his Twitter account.

Speculation that a commitment was coming started Wednesday afternoon with a cryptic series of tweets that caught the eyes of those who have been following his recruitment.

Who doesn't love a good riddle?

Earlier this week, he had announced a top five of Michigan, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oregon and Arizona State.
