The commitments just keep rolling in for Michigan.
The Wolverines received their eighth commitment since June 22 in the 2019 recruiting class on Monday morning when Blairstown, N.J., defensive end David Ojabo pledged to coach Jim Harbaugh’s program.
Ojabo’s commitment followed the Sunday night Michigan commitment of the nation’s No. 1-ranked all-purpose back, Eric Gray of Memphis, Tenn.
Ojabo is 6-4 and 230 pounds and is ranked a three-star prospect and the No. 32 strong-side defensive end in the nation by the 247Sports Composite.
Ojabo, who is from Nigeria, becomes the 18th commitment in Michigan’s 2019 class and vaults the Wolverines to No. 3 in the nation on 247Sports.
Ojabo told 247Sports what pushed Michigan to No. 1 from more than 30 scholarship offers.
“It’s just everything about it,” he said. “They are top three in business in the country. It is top-notch football. Everyone knows that, and then it’s a legendary coach (Jim Harbaugh), and then there is (defensive line) coach (Greg) Mattison and (defensive coordinator) coach Don Brown.
“I figured that would be the best fit for me. I feel that they want me as much as I want them. It’s not a one-sided thing. I felt like they were being real with me. I felt it with my gut.”
