Michigan yet another member to its class.

Add another player to the list of June 21 official visitors who ended up committing to Michigan. The latest is 3-star defensive lineman Kris Jenkins, who fills an important need.

Jenkins chose Michigan over offers from Maryland, Northwestern, Michigan State, Iowa, Penn State, Purdue, North Carolina and a slew of others. His offers from Yale and Vanderbilt further support he is a high academic prospect, which surely helped out Michigan.

Coming out of Our Lady Good Counsel in Maryland, Jenkins is ranked as the No. 594 player in the country. His 6-foot-4, 239-pound frame and genetics from his dad, former NFL defensive tackle Kris Jenkins Sr., suggest he will eventually grow into an interior player.

Jenkins’ father probably played a role in landing his son’s talents, since he is originally from Ypsilanti. Local Maryland was seen to be a favorite before Jenkins took his official visit to campus and crystal balls started rolling in.

This is the 21st commitment in the 2020 recruiting class, which stays at No. 6 in the country and No. 2 in the Big Ten.
