VanSumeren made his announcement with a short video post on Twitter. He initially committed to play at Michigan in mid-December of 2019 but decommitted this February.
Per 247Sports, VanSumeren is a 4-star defensive tackle who ranks as the No. 16 player at his position and the No. 193 overall prospect in the class. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Essexville, Michigan native is a Top 5 player in his home state.
High-motor player with good twitch and explosiveness at his size. Puts a lot of time into strength and speed training and will be well ahead of the curve in that regard as he enters college. Can pursue and run down the ball and also shows great power as a bull-rusher.
VanSumeren is a member of the 2022 recruiting class and has received 20 offers.
