Michigan Football Recruiting: Henry Poggi Commits

It has been a good few days for Michigan's 2013 football recruiting class. On Saturday, the Wolverines added defensive tackle Maurice Hurst Jr., and they also added defensive tackle Henry Poggi. Poggi, as expected, announced the news on Monday morning. He picked Michigan over Alabama, giving the Wolverines a nice win on the recruiting trail against the team they will open the 2012 season against on Sept. 1.

Poggi is a consensus four-star defensive tackle from Baltimore, Maryland. Rivals ranks him second at his position and 52nd in the nation. The other sites aren't quite that high on him, but all of them give him four stars.

Poggi's offer list is quite impressive. In addition to receiving offers from Michigan and Alabama, Rivals reports that he has offers from Auburn, California, Florida, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan State, Missouri, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, USC and Wisconsin, among many others.

Poggi is Michigan's 20th commitment for 2013. The full list of commits is below.
