Michigan finally has its quarterback for the 2020 class, as Dan Villari announced his commitment to the Wolverines. He also signed his letter of intent.

He is 6-foot-4, 215 pounds from Massapequa, New York. He is not ranked on 247Sports’ composite rankings, but he is No. 1,242 overall on 247’s personal rankings.

Villari’s other offers were from UMass, Kent State, Buffalo, Albany, Fordham and Central Connecticut State. Wisconsin also had interest in him, but never offered.

The Wolverines’ other option in 2020, four-star CJ Stroud, committed to Ohio State.

Michigan was left scrambling a bit at quarterback in their 2020 class after three-star JD Johnson announced his medical retirement from the sport. Michigan coaches reached out to Villari a couple weeks ago and got him on campus for an official visit last weekend. He received his scholarship from Michigan today, publicly at least.

Needless to say, Jim Harbaugh and Josh Gattis did really good, and quick, work to get him in on an official visit last weekend and get his commitment just a short time later. Had Villari not committed to Michigan, Harbaugh and Gattis would be scrambling even more, and perhaps looking into options in the transfer portal.

Michigan already has its quarterback committed in the 2021 class — five-star J.J. McCarthy.

It isn’t known at this time if Villari will sign tomorrow or Friday, or wait until the February signing day.
