Michigan Football Recruiting: Derrick Green Doesn't Commit During Weekend Visit

The Michigan football program had a big recruiting weekend. They did not add any new commits, but they hosted quite a few recruits for 2013 and beyond for their annual BBQ at the Big House. The event brought a lot of their current commits together, and it also brought a lot of potential commits to Ann Arbor.

One potential commit who visited was running back Derrick Green. He is considered the No. 1 running back in the nation for 2013 by Rivals, and many believed he was going to commit to Michigan during his weekend visit. The visit came right after Ohio State ran out of room for him, so the stars seemed to be aligning for the Wolverines.

While Green very well may end up committing to Michigan at some point, he didn't during his visit.

Green certainly seemed to have a good time, and according to many reports, he came close to pulling the trigger on a commitment. For now, though, his recruitment continues with him deciding against committing over the weekend.

Michigan has two spots left for 2013, and if everything goes according to plan, Green and wide receiver Laquon Treadwell will fill them. They are both highly regarded recruits, and adding even one of them would be a nice way to finish the '13 class. If Michigan is able to land both, there's a very good chance the Wolverines could end up finishing with the No. 1 class in the nation despite nearly being full seven months before signing day.
