Michigan has finished in second place for yet another recruit. This is becoming a trend based on what has happened in the last week, and it continued on Monday when Ohio tight end Sam Grant committed to Oklahoma over Michigan, according to Tim Warsinskey. Grant was previously committed to Boston College, and Michigan was hoping to add him in order to improve its tight end depth for 2012.
Grant, a three-star tight end, is from the same high school as Kyle Kalis. Kalis, of course, made headlines last summer when he decommitted from Ohio State to Michigan. The Wolverines were trying to get Grant to decommit to Michigan from Boston College, but in the end he opted for Oklahoma.
In the last week, Michigan has also finished second for offensive guard Joshua Garnett (he picked Stanford), cornerback Armani Reeves (he committed to Ohio State) and offensive tackle Alex Kozan (he went with Iowa). With National Signing Day approaching, Michigan will hope to turn around its luck with guys like Jordan Diamond, Chris Muller and Willie Henry.
