Michigan landed another four-star recruit from SEC country
Michigan’s success in SEC country continued on Wednesday.
The Wolverines got a commitment from four-star Florida offensive tackle Kai-Leon Herbert, who ranks as the No. 166 recruit overall in the 247sports composite.
He made the announcement with this incredible “Walking Dead” video on Bleacher Report:
The 6-5, 284-pound lineman attended the Wolverines’ satellite camp at St. Thomas Aquinas in Florida — where Jake Rudock and John O’Korn went to school — and he took an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor last month.
Herbert picked the Wolverines over the likes of several SEC schools, including Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State and Tennessee.
Herbert is rated as the No. 22 offensive tackle and the No. 32 Florida recruit in the 2017 class. He became the highest-rated offensive lineman in Michigan’s 2017 class, which is ranked No. 4 nationally. His commitment gave the Wolverines their eighth recruit of four stars or better, and their fourth offensive line recruit.
Michigan now has 18 commitments overall, five of which are from the SEC footprint. The Wolverines hope that The Opening will be the beginning of a big week for their ever-expanding 2017 class.
