After all these months, Nordin is a Wolverine.

After months of "will he or won't he," Michigan finally adds one of its targets that it has been after the longest.

Class of 2016 kicker Quinn Nordin (Rockwood, Michigan) announced Wednesday morning that he has committed to the Wolverines.

Nordin is a three-star prospect and the top-ranked kicker in the country, according to the 247 Composite. He is the 18th-ranked player in the entire state of Michigan.

Michigan offered Nordin back in April 2015. Many felt throughout the process that he was set to become a Wolverine at some point, even after he committed to Penn State in July.

Former special teams coach John Baxter was a huge factor in his recruitment, so when he left to take the same position at USC it made his decision a bit more difficult. Enter Jim Harbaugh, who stepped in to try to close the deal via sleepover when the dead period ended.

Nordin will be in the mix to make an impact on special teams immediately.
