Michigan added two more commitments Sunday, dipping into the South while picking up another much-needed linebacker, a distinct position of need for the Wolverines this fall.

Florida defensive end Joshua Uche and Georgia linebacker Elysee Mbem-Bosse, both three-star prospects on Scout.com, committed to the Wolverines' 2016 recruiting class on Sunday night.

Rivals rates Mbem-Bosse a four star while the 247Sports composite rankings has both recruits as three stars.

Both were on official visits to Ann Arbor over the weekend.

Uche, a 6-3, 215-pounder from Columbus High in Miami, is ranked the No. 53 defensive end in the nation by Scout.com. The former Miami Hurricanes commit chose the Wolverines over Florida and Auburn.

"After lots of prayer and discussions with my family I would like to now announce that I will be attending the University of Michigan," Uche wrote on Twitter.

Mbem-Bosse, a 6-3, 232-pounder from Cedar Grove High in Ellenwood, Georgia, is ranked the No. 26 inside linebacker in the nation.

"Before I begin I would like to thank God, my family, and God again for blessing me and allowing me to play this game of football," Mbem-Bosse wrote on Twitter. "I want to also take this time to thank every coach and school that has offered and recruited me. I wish and hope nothing but the best for those coaches and their universities. It's time to take things to the next level by opening this new chapter in my life. I will be spending the next 3-4 years at the University of Michigan. ... S/O to the University of Michigan (coaches, staff, teammates, students, alumni, and the best fans in CFB)."

Michigan's 2016 class now stands at 24 players with just over a week to go until National Signing Day on Feb. 3.
