Four-star defensive tackle commits to Michigan
It wasn’t all bad for Michigan on Saturday.
After the Wolverines’ 42-13 loss to Ohio State, they got some big news on the recruiting front. Four-star defensive tackle Jordan Elliott announced that he’ll be coming to Ann Arbor in 2016.

The Houston native is the 14th-ranked defensive tackle recruit in the country. He made his official visit to Ann Arbor on Saturday and announced his commitment following the game.
Elliott turned down a pair of Texas schools in favor of Jim Harbaugh’s bunch. The 6-4, 305-pound defensive tackle had been considering Baylor and Texas, and had offers from Alabama, Notre Dame and USC among dozens of others.
He’s UM’s fourth-highest rated overall recruit and the highest-rated defensive recruit in Michigan’s 2016 class, according to 247sports. The Wolverines currently boast the No. 3 recruiting class in the B1G and ninth best in the country.
Without the injured Ryan Glasgow, Michigan could’ve used Elliott’s presence to slow down Ezekiel Elliott and J.T. Barrett on Saturday.
