Three-star recruit Gareon Conley decommitted from Michigan football two weeks ago, and on Friday he reportedly committed to Ohio State. Conley reportedly had offers to Cincinnati, Northwestern and Marshall, aside from the initial offer by Michigan, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Ohio State could use Conley on either side of the ball, but Marcus Hartman of FOX Sports thinks the young man could fit very well in the defensive backfield:

Michigan has received 22 verbal commitments for 2013, and they still have a top-5 recruiting class, according to Rivals.com. The schools ahead of Michigan are Notre Dame, Alabama, Florida and USC. The Wolverines have received committments from one five-star recruit, 13 four-star recruits and seven three-star prospects. Ohio State has the No. 8 class according to Rivals. The next closest Big Ten teams are the Wisconsin Badgers at No. 26 and the Nebraska Cornhuskers at No. 31.
