Well, this is really surprising. There might not be any room left for Ron Thompson in this class?
Today, both TE Devin Funchess and TE A.J Williams have committed to Michigan; giving Michigan their 5th and 6th commits for the 2012 recruiting class.
Funchess wasn't supposed to be an early announcement, so this is a pleasant surprise, especially since he's the #6 TE in the country according to scout.com. Loving this tweet too:
TomVH: "Devin Funchess also told me that he will try to recruit his teammate DE Mario Ojemudia to Michigan"
This tells us two things, #1, Michigan has a really good shot with Ojemudia now, and #2, Michigan probably doesn't have a shot with Aaron Burbridge! (Their other teammate who favors MSU).
As for Williams, it appears like Funchess committed first, and Williams decided he might as well pull the trigger too. Williams is a three star prospect with an impressive offer list; he visited UM last month with his Dad and both of them really bonded with the UM coaches.
The TE position figures to be a key part in Michigan's offense under Al Borges, but they don't have a great deal of talent on the roster right now. These two commits will give UM much needed depth after Koger departs this season. The question now remains, will they take Ron Thompson, arguably the most talented TE of the three? Does it depend on further attrition?
Commitment posts to follow later.
