Ohio linebacker Mike McCray has committed to Michigan. He was in Ann Arbor on Tuesday and made the decision to commit while there, giving the Wolverines 14 commitments for 2013 and another one from a highly rated recruit.
McCray is ranked 44th in the nation by Rivals. He is a four-star outside linebacker and is also a four-star recruit on 24/7 Sports. He's 168th in the nation on 24/7 Sports and eighth in the state of Ohio. On ESPN, he is on the 150 watch list, as are 10 other Michigan commits.
According to Rivals, McCray holds offers from Michigan, Arizona, Boston College, Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Purdue, South Carolina and Tennessee, among other schools.
McCray could end up being merely the first linebacker Michigan picks up this week, as the Wolverines are believed to be in good shape with Ben Gedeon. They also lead for guys like Dorian O'Daniel and E.J. Levenberry, although neither is expected to make a decision in the near future. Even so, Michigan is on track to have a very strong class again, especially at linebacker.
