Four-star 2017 Quarterback Dylan McCaffrey Commits to Michigan Football

Yes, he is related to THAT McCaffrey.

Michigan Football has found its signal-caller for the class of 2017.

Four-star prospect Dylan McCaffrey (Littleton, Colorado) has committed to the Wolverines, he posted on Twitter on Monday night.

He is the second-ranked pro-style quarterback in the class, according to the 247 Composite.

McCaffrey has long been thought of as the leader in the clubhouse to be the quarterback that Jim Harbaugh took in this cycle and he decided to pull the trigger on Monday.

Speaking of Harbaugh, this is what he had to say when our Brandon Justice caught up with him last month:

"No one out there is better than Harbaugh, maybe just as good, but no one is better," he said.

McCaffrey sees the fit at Michigan and likes how the staff makes adjustments and is able to get the best effort out of everyone.

"I love how (Harbaugh) adjusts. Look what he did with Colin Kaepernick. He gets the best out of his guys," McCaffrey said.

McCaffrey's brother, Christian, was the Heisman Trophy runner-up last season at Stanford. Also, his father played in the NFL, so he has the pedigree of a successful football player.

For a look at what type of skill-set he brings to the table, Nick Bodanyi did a thorough scouting report on him earlier Monday.

He is the fifth commitment of Michigan's 2017 class, joining running back Kurt Taylor, tight end Carter Dunaway, offensive tackle JaRaymond Hall and defensive back Benjamin St-Juste.
