Joshua Ross elected to keep it within the family. The Michigan family, that is.

The brother of former Michigan linebacker James Ross announced his commitment to the Wolverines on Tuesday morning:

Ross, a four-star recruit, is the seventh-ranked inside linebacker in the 2017 class. The West Bloomfield, Mich. native is the third-ranked 2017 recruit in the state of Michigan.

He chose Michigan over the likes of Baylor, LSU, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State and more.┬áHe’ll be the second highest-recruit in Michigan’s 12th-ranked 2017 class behind only four-star quarterback Dylan McCaffrey.

The 6-2, 225-pound recruit was the second linebacker to commit to Michigan in a span of 12 hours. On Monday night, the Wolverines landed their first 2018 recruit, who is also a four-star inside linebacker.

Ross’ older brother, James, played in 50 games for the Wolverines and started 21 of them at linebacker. As a senior in 2015, he helped solidify one of the nation’s top scoring defenses.
