Michigan Football Recruiting: Blake Bars Commits

Nashville offensive tackle Blake Bars committed to Michigan on Sunday night. He became Michigan's 18th commitment for the 2012 football recruiting class and could be the first of a few players to choose Michigan in the coming days (keep an eye on guys like Chris Wormley and Kyle Kalis).

Bars is a 6-foot-5 offensive tackle from Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tennessee. Rivals rates him as a four-star recruit and the 34th best player at his position. Scout, ESPN and 24/7 Sports all have Bars as a three-star recruit.

According to Rivals, Bars' offer list includes Michigan, Boston College, Clemson, Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Mississippi State, Penn State, Purdue, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Wake Forest, among others.
