Another day, another commitment.

(It has been awhile since we have been able to type that)

Class of 2017 linebacker Joshua Ross (West Bloomfield, Michigan) announced on Tuesday afternoon that he has verbally pledged to the Michigan Wolverines.

If the name sounds familiar, it is. He is the brother of former Michigan linebacker James Ross III, played his final season this fall.

Ross is a four-star prospect and the seventh-ranked inside linebacker in the class of 2017, according to the 247 Composite. He is also the third-ranked player in the state of Michigan.

He stands at 6-2, 225 pounds heading into his senior football season at Orchard Lake St. Mary's HS and has a plethora of offers from college football's top schools, but he has always seemed bound for Ann Arbor.

Ross is the sixth commitment of the 2017 cycle for Michigan.
