Michigan picked up a commitment from Chris Rock -- the football player from Columbus, Ohio, not the comedian -- last Friday. Rock is a defensive end who attends the same school as current Wolverine Patrick Omameh. Despite growing up in Columbus and being part of a family of Ohio State fans, Rock decided to commit to Michigan this past Friday, becoming the fifth member of Michigan's 2011 recruiting class.â†µ
Rock, rated as a three-star DE by Scout, is also the second recruit from Ohio to commit to Michigan for 2011. Greg Brown of Fremont, Ohio, committed way back in September 2009. The other three commits are all Michigan natives. Shawn Conway hails from Birmingham, Brennen Beyer is from Canton, and Delonte Hollowell calls Detroit home.
