The Michigan Wolverines picked up a commitment in their 2020 recruiting class Friday morning from 4-star linebacker Osman Savage. He announced his collegiate decision on his Twitter page.

The 6-foot-2. 225-pounder from St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, Maryland had other offers from Michigan State, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Pitt, West Virginia, Maryland, Purdue, Tennessee and more.

Savage is currently the No. 13 player in the state of Maryland, No. 15 linebacker and No. 250 overall player in the 2020 class, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

No surprise here, but defensive coordinator Don Brown was the main recruiter here. Brown has a familiarity with the Northeastern region of the country, so anyone Brown wants is someone Michigan fans should be excited to see commit to the program.

Michigan now has six commits in its 2020 class, including Savage, 4-star in-state cornerback Andre Seldon, 4-star wide receiver Kalil Branham, 3-star in-state linebacker Cornell Wheeler, 3-star tight end Nick Patterson (Shea’s brother) and 3-star quarterback JD Johnson. The class is currently No. 7 overall, according to 247Sports.

I’m sure there are some great 2020 recruit names out there, but “Osman Savage” currently sits atop the rankings. I dare you to find a better one.
