The ball keeps rolling.

Michigan Football has gained a commitment from class of 2017 running back O'Maury Samuels (Los Lunas, New Mexico), according to Sam Webb of The Michigan Insider.

Samuels is a four-star prospect, the 21st-ranked player at his position and the state of New Mexico's top recruit, according to the 247 Composite ranking system.

He was on campus this weekend visiting for the spring game and joins a backfield that already has two other commitments in this cycle in AJ Dillon and Kurt Taylor.

Samuels has been a combine star and has some very good measurables. He is currently Nike's national leader in their SPARQ rating.

His commitment gives the Wolverines 11 to this point in the 2017 cycle. The class is ranked seventh nationally, per the 247 Composite.
