Michigan Football Recruiting: Ondre Pipkins Commits

Michigan's 2012 football recruiting class is already one of the best in the nation, and it got even better on Monday when Missouri defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins committed to the Wolverines. Pipkins becomes the 22nd recruit that will be on scholarship in 2012 to commit to Michigan, and he is the 23rd player overall to join the Wolverines' 2012 recruiting class.

Pipkins is a four-star recruit on all of the major sites aside from ESPN. Rivals ranks him 19th at DT, fourth in the state of Missouri and 246th overall. Scout has him 12th at DT and 24/7 Sports ranks him 15th at the position. Pipkins is ranked 149th in the nation by 24/7 Sports.

According to Rivals, Pipkins has offers from Michigan, Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Tennessee, among others.

As that list of schools suggest, Pipkins is viewed as a very good player, and his commitment actually helped Michigan take the top spot in Scout's team recruiting rankings. The Wolverines are at the top of the list, leading Texas, Florida, Texas A&M, Florida State and the rest of the nation.
