Michigan lands commitment from highest-ranked RB prospect in program history
What was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day (slight exaggeration) now isn’t so bad for Michigan. Donovan Edwards is a Wolverine.
One of the top running back recruits in the nation, Edwards committed to Michigan on Wednesday during the first day of the Early Signing Period. Edwards is a four-star recruit and the nation’s No. 4 running back according to 247Sports.
Naturally, he had offers from all over the country including Oklahoma, Alabama, Florida, Miami, Notre Dame and Ohio State among others. He is the highest-ranked running back prospect to commit to Michigan since 247Sports began keeping track.
