On Friday, 4-star defensive tackle Tyler Friday committed to Ohio State. The recruit seemed to have been leaning toward Michigan with the growing possibility of him going to Alabama, but few, besides Buckeye fans, imagined Friday would choose Ohio State.

Michigan usually is able to get an edge on other college football programs when it comes to recruits from New Jersey, like Friday, because Michigan already has several players from the state on its team. This often makes recruits feel a little more at home and, if a recruit is on the edge, can put Michigan over the top when it comes time for the recruit to decide where he wants to go. However, this didn’t change Friday’s mind.

Just two days after Friday’s announcement, cornerback Vincent Gray committed to Michigan. The 3-star out of Rochester, Michigan was just offered by the Wolverines back in mid-December. Gray then took an official visit to Ann Arbor in early January.

Gray was one of two commitments from cornerbacks this weekend for the Wolverines. Utah grad transfer Casey Hughes announced that he would be using his finally year of eligibility at Michigan.

Furthermore, the Wolverines hosted several recruits from both the 2018 and 2019 classes, but most notably 4-star linebacker Michigan commit Otis Reese finally makes an official visit to Ann Arbor. The recruit came to town with fellow state champ and teammate Ty Terrell.

Reese, who has unofficially visited Georgia twice this past season, showed some love for Michigan as he posted some pictures of him in a Michigan uniform to his Twitter. The commit did not sign during the early signing period, possibly due to Georgia stepping up its recruitment of the in-state player.

Hi y’all! I am a Southern soul stuck in a Michigan girl’s body. One day I will escape these six month winters. But I have cherished every moment of growing up in Northern Michigan and attending a small high school where the morale of the town varies depending on the weather and how our sports teams are playing. I was raised in the maize and blue worshipping Tom Brady, Bo, and Charles Woodson. Every Fall Saturday began with me, my brothers, and my dad huddled in the living room watching College GameDay. We cheered on Michigan, Alabama (my younger brother is a bandwagoner), and any team playing Ohio State. And Sundays were designated to preventing my dad from having a heart attack while watching the Detroit Lions wait until the fourth quarter to actually play a game. In a nutshell, sports, to me, have always been extremely emotional and that’s why I became a fan.
