Michigan football commits for the 2012 recruiting class seem to come in pairs, so I guess it shouldn't be too surprising that the Wolverines picked up two more verbals on Saturday. Mario Ojemudia was the first to commit to Michigan, and shortly after Pharaoh Brown also committed, becoming the 10th player currently committed to be a member of the 2012 class.
Ojemudia is a defensive end from Farmington Hills. He goes to Farmington Hills Harrison high school and is a teammate of fellow Michigan commit Devin Funchess.
Ojemudia is listed as a four-star defensive tackle on Scout, which also has his position potentially being outside linebacker. Considering Michigan already has four linebacker commits, I'd imagine he is being recruited as a defensive lineman. Rivals and ESPN hate not yet rated Ojemudia, whose offer list includes the following schools: Michigan, Central Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Missouri, Stanford and Syracuse.
Brown is also a defensive end. He is from Lyndhurst, Ohio, and is a three-star recruit on Scout. Just like Ojemudia, Rivals and ESPN have not yet rated Brown. Brown's offer list includes Michigan, Arizona State, Boston College, Cincinnati, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Louisville, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina, NC State, Northern Illinois, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.
