Belleville senior defensive end Tyrece Woods committed to Michigan, announcing his choice on Twitter late Sunday night.

Woods, at 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds, was named MVP of the defensive linemen at Michigan’s camp this summer and then offered by the coaching staff.

Woods had Michigan, Fresno State and Cincinnati as his final three schools.

“I’ve been talking to Michigan since the ninth grade and they’ve never stopped coming, been the most consistent throughout the process,” Woods said.

“Coach (Don) Brown has a lot of fire, coach (Jim) Harbaugh is passionate about the game and loves winning and coach (Greg) Mattison, who would be my position coach, is the go-to type of guy, a great guy and coach.”

Woods is the third in-state commit — joining East Kentwood's Mazi Smith and Paw Paw's Karsen Barnhart — and 20th overall commitment in Michigan's 2019 recruiting class, which ranks No. 11 nationally and No. 2 in the Big Ten, according to 247Sports.
