Even with a nationwide shutdown and social distancing measures taking place, the Michigan Wolverines have remained busy on the football recruiting trail. The program added its second commit of Thursday In the form of a five-star punter in Orchard Lake St. Mary’s kicker/punter Tommy Doman Jr.

Doman made his announcement via his Twitter account.

The term “five-star” for a special teams player comes from places like Kohl’s Professional Camps and Kornblue Kicking, who rate prospects compared to those on their respective side of the ball. The early returns on Doman is that he is one of the nation’s most skilled kicking prospects.

The Kohl’s report reads:

Doman has attended multiple Kohl’s events with the most recent being in January of 2020. He is a long athletic prospect. His punting consistency might be the best in the country. Doman has great hands and is more technically polished than anyone else in the 2020 class. He makes field goals look easy and won the kickoff competition at the Underclassman Challenge. Doman is currently the best overall combo K/P in the 2020 class and is a D1 scholarship player.

Doman is the sixth commit of Michigan’s 2021 recruiting class, along with quarterback J.J. McCarthy, offensive lineman Giovanni El-Hadi, tight end Louis Hansen (who also committed on Thursday), center Greg Crippen and defensive end Dominick Guidice.
