The 2021 class has grown to seven commitments after four-star tight end Louis Hansen and kicker Tommy Doman, ranked No. 2 nationally by Kornblue Kicking, joined the group on Thursday.

Phinney plays at Noble and Greenough in Massachusetts – Hansen also is from the state and plays for St. Sebastian’s in Needham – and is ranked the No. 9 player in the state by 247Sports Composite. He is 6-foot-1, 225 pounds and had offers from Army and Massachusetts, among others.

Michigan’s 2021 class is now ranked No. 13 nationally and No. 6 in the Big Ten by 247Sports.
