Update: A quick analysis of Long's commitment to Michigan can be found here.

After a few days of rough news, Michigan Football has regained some positivity on the recruiting trail.

Class of 2016 defensive back David Long (Los Angeles, California) has committed to the Wolverines, he announced live on ESPNU's "Recruiting Nation" on Thursday evening.

Long is a four-star prospect and the eighth-ranked cornerback in the class, according to the 247 Composite.

Michigan has been recruiting Long hard throughout the process, even while he was committed to Stanford. He decommitted from the Cardinal this past December and his recruitment has been trending the way of the Wolverines since then. Washington was also in the mix for his services.

He is good friends with wide receiver Dylan Crawford, who is also from California and joined the class earlier this month.

Michigan is now back up to 21 commits in the class after a pair of players decommitted on Thursday.

We'll have more on Long's commitment shortly.
