On Day 1 of the Early Signing Period, Michigan prevailed in the battle for a coveted 4-star defensive back. IMG Academy safety Keon Sabb is signing with the Wolverines.

Sabb selected Michigan over Ohio State, Georgia, and LSU. He was previously a Clemson commit.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Sabb is regarded as the No. 94 overall player in the nation, as well as the No. 9 safety in the country, and the No. 14 prospect from Florida, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Sabb is praised by scouts for his potential and versatility. The defender is currently projected by 247Sports to have a ceiling as a 2nd-to-3rd round NFL Draft selection.

“Should get more explosive once training with a college strength coach and is likely to get more only more comfortable working on the defensive side of the ball once focus shifts completely towards making stops,” 247Sports analyst Andrew Ivins said “Position ambiguity a plus in an era where many NFL front offices are rostering defenders that can do a variety of different things.”
