The Michigan Wolverines just landed a top defensive end in the 2020 class.

Four-star DE Jaylen Harrell announced he’ll be committing to Michigan.

The Tampa, Florida prospect is ranked as the No. 303 prospect and No. 19 weak-side defensive end in the 2020 class.

Harrell took an official visit to Michigan last weekend and he said that the Wolverines were at the top of his list. The 6-foot-4, 235 pound end planned on taking an official visit to Miami this weekend but it sounds like he was convinced that Michigan is where he belongs.

Harrell’s role at Michigan could be versatile in nature. Just as Josh Uche was used at linebacker and defensive end, Harrell is poised for the same kind of role.

“I can fit into it really well (to the defense),” Harrell said this week. “They do a lot of different things (where) I could make plays on the field. I feel like it’d be a great fit.”
