At this time a week ago, Michigan had only three commits for its 2013 football recruiting class. Now, after adding eight over the weekend and one on Wednesday, the Wolverines are up to 12 commits for 2013.
The latest commit for Michigan is wide receiver Jaron Dukes, who is from Columbus, Ohio. He is a lifelong fan of Michigan and decided to commit to his favorite school on Wednesday, according to Sam Webb.

Unlike the eight commits from the weekend, Dukes is not a four-star recruit (at least not yet). He is unrated on Rivals, Scout and ESPN, and on 24/7 sports he is a three-star receiver ranked 63rd at his position and 28th in the state of Ohio.
According to Rivals, Dukes holds offers from Michigan, Illinois and Toledo.
