Michigan’s class adds a pair of four-star commits
The 2018 Early Signing Period is on Wednesday, meaning high school seniors can finally sign their National Letters of Intent.
And the battle for the Big Ten recruiting title tipped back in Michigan’s favor over the weekend when it added two four-star commits.
Friday night, four-star tackle Trevor Keegan announced his commitment to the Wolverines. Four-star linebacker Anthony Solomon made it two commits on Sunday night when he flipped to Michigan from Miami.
The Wolverines now have the No. 8 class in the nation according to 247Sports.com, and edged out Ohio State for the top spot in the Big Ten. But the top spot in the Big Ten could hinge on where Olentangy Orange five-star defensive end Zach Harrison signs, especially if he picks either OSU or Michigan.
Five Ohio State players receive their degrees
The Rose Bowl will be the final game for a handful of Ohio State players. But five in particular got a little extra prior to the game.
Parris Campbell, Dre’Mont Jones, Johnny Dixon, Malcolm Pridgeon and Brady Taylor all got their degrees at Ohio State’s Autumn Commencement on Sunday.
Campbell, Dixon and Jones all majored in Sociology. Pridgeon received his degree in Human Development and Family Science, and Taylor earned his degree in Family Resource Management.
Jones announced earlier this week that he is leaving school after the Rose Bowl to enter the NFL Draft. The five joined Dante Booker, Chris Chugunov, Jashon Cornell, Demetrius Knox, Terry McLaurin and Sean Nuernberger as players on the team with their degrees.
