Michigan's ridiculous run on the recruiting trail continued on Sunday with yet another commitment. After picking up six commitments on Saturday (all from four-star recruits), the Wolverines added Ohio tight end Jake Butt on Sunday.
Officially a wolverine!!! #goblue— jake butt (@bigjakeyB_1) February 20, 2012
Butt, like the six commits from Saturday, is a four-star recruit. Rivals ranks him 96th in the nation. In the state of Ohio, 24/7 Sports has Butt 15th. ESPN has him on the ESPNU Top 150 list, giving Michigan seven commits for 2013 on that list.
Butt has an extensive offer list. According to Rivals, he has offers from Michigan, Boston College, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue, Stanford, Tennessee, UCLA and Wisconsin, among other schools.
With Butt verballing, Michigan is up to 10 commits for 2013. Butt joins the six from Saturday (Kyle Bosch, Wyatt Shallman, Jourdan Lewis, David Dawson, Chris Fox and Taco Charlton) and the three who were previously committed (Shane Morris, Dymonte Thomas and Khalid Hill). Amazingly, nine of the 10 commits are four-star recruits.
