Michigan Football Recruiting: Alex Kozan Signs With Auburn

Michigan is off to a fast start for 2013, already securing 13 commitments for next year's class. Believe it or not, but up until Monday night, there was actually still some business to take care of for the 2012 class. Colorado offensive guard Alex Kozan remained unsigned and was believed to be still considering the Wolverines. Despite signing day coming and going nearly a month ago, Kozan still hadn't made a decision.

On Monday, Kozan finally decided on a school by sending in his letter of intent to Auburn, according to ESPN's Damon Sayles. This means Kozan won't be coming to Michigan, and it also means that the Wolverines can finally close the book on their recruiting class for 2012.

Had this decision come on signing day, it would have been a blow to Michigan, which missed out on several offensive line prospects in the final weeks of the 2012 recruiting cycle, including Jordan Diamond, who also signed with Auburn. Now, though, with five four-star offensive linemen already committed for 2013, Michigan appears to be in very good shape at that position going forward.

While adding a four-star offensive lineman for 2012 this late the game would have been a nice bonus, I don't think Brady Hoke will lose much sleep over Kozan signing with Auburn. For 2012, Michigan signed four offensive linemen: Kyle Kalis, Erik Magnuson, Blake Bars and Ben Braden. Currently the following five offensive linemen are committed for 2013: Kyle Bosch, David Dawson, Chris Fox, Logan Tuley-Tillman and Patrick Kugler. With or without Kozan, the future is pretty bright for Michigan's offensive line down the road.
