Earlier today, The Wolverine and the Detroit Free Press reported that Ondre Pipkins committed to Michigan. This is a key commitment because Michigan will lose a lot of depth at DT over the next two seasons.
Pipkins comes from Kansas City, Missouri and stands at 6'3" and weighs 325 lbs. Rivals has rated him as a 4 star prospect and the 19th best DT in the 2012 class.
This will be the 22nd commitment to Michigan's 2012 recruiting class, which was already ranked as #4 in the nation. Along with this, Pipkin's commitment has risen Michigan's 2012 class to #1 according to Scout and Michigan's 2012 Dt class up to #17 in the nation according to Rivals. If these defensive recruits achieve anything near the hype, Michigan could have one of the elite defenses in the country in a few years, especially with Brady Hoke and Greg Mattison at the helm.
