Mbem-Bosse is a three-star prospect and the 17th-ranked inside linebacker, while Uche is also a three-star and the 46th-ranked weak-side defensive end. Both rankings come via the 247 Composite.
The Wolverines see Uche at linebacker, as well.
Mbem-Bosse teased a joint announcement for the two players earlier on Sunday.
Me and my bro @Uche_Josh20 Got an announcement to make at 8 Stay tuned— Elysee Mbem-Bosse (@ElyseeBoss) January 24, 2016
Both took an official visit to Michigan this weekend and were being recruited by new defensive coordinator Don Brown. Any questions about his ability to recruit seem to be answered, at least early on. Mbem-Bosse and Uche were two guys he targeted and pushed hard for.
Their commitments bring Michigan up to 24 pledges in the 2016 class with several targets still on the board heading into signing day.
We will have more on both commitments shortly.
