The 2020 recruiting drought is over. For the first time in just under two months, Michigan goes back to the Massachusetts well to pick up a commitment in 4-star offensive tackle Zak Zinter.

As the country’s No. 21 tackle and 217th player overall, Zinter becomes the highest ranked member of Michigan’s recruiting class. He has visited campus at least four times during his process after receiving an offer from the Wolverines back in September.
Michigan beat out Notre Dame for the 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman, who also held offers from Ohio State, Auburn, Florida, Michigan State, Oregon, Penn State and a bunch of other schools.
Zinter is the second offensive lineman in Michigan’s 2020 class, following 3-star Micah Mazzcuua. After taking six offensive linemen in the last class, I’d imagine the staff takes two or three more on the line this year.
Michigan’s class overall has seven members and is ranked 18th in the country.
