On Friday, Ohio cornerback Gareon Conley said on Twitter that he was planning to commit on Saturday. He delivered on that tweet while in Ann Arbor on Saturday for a visit with the Michigan Wolverines. Conley decided to commit to the Wolverines while on campus, and by doing so he became their 15th verbal for 2013 and their second this week. (Mike McCray committed to Michigan on Tuesday.)
Conlon has not yet been rated by Rivals, but he does have stars on Scout and 24/7 Sports. Specifically, Scout considers him a four-star cornerback, whereas 24/7 Sports gives him three stars. On Scout, he is ranked as the 20th cornerback in the nation. Overall, he is ranked 227th in the nation on Scout, giving Michigan a total of 13 commits in the top 300.
24/7 Sports reports that Conley has offers from four schools: Michigan, Northwestern, West Virginia and Toledo.
As mentioned, Michigan is now up to 15 commits for 2013. The most amazing thing about how quickly the Wolverines have put together most of their 2013 class is that they didn't have a single commit for their 2012 class at this time last year. A big part of that was because Brady Hoke was only in his second month on the job. Now, with a full year to prepare for the 2013 class, Michigan is close to filling it up 11 months before signing day.
