The University of Michigan has been on a roll over the last week, securing 4 new commits in the class of 2016, including Southfield running back Matthew Falcon.

Falcon, a 6’1 215-pound junior, committed yesterday to the Wolverines over Tennessee. He is the top rated running back in Michigan in the 2016 recruiting class. The Wolverines tried hard to get Cass Tech’s running back Mike Weber in the 2015 class, but fell short on signing day.

Michigan has been looking for that go to guy in their ground attack for the last few years, and Falcon could be the answer. He has the size, speed and power Harbaugh wants in his featured back for their pro-style offense.

The Wolverines also got two great additions at fullback with David Reese from Farmington High (MI) and Kingston Davis from Prattville High (AL). Reese is 6’1 235-pounds and Davis is 6’1 225-pounds. Both are tough hard-nosed players that will be great lead blockers in the running game.

Michigan picked up Brandon Peters, a 6’5 quarterback, from Avon High School (IN) last week. Harbaugh gave him high praise, comparing him to Andrew Luck. Peters threw for just under 1,900 yards this past season and has unlimited potential.

Michigan’s spring game was not only a big success, attracting 60,000 fans; the Wolverines also had a great weekend on the recruiting front.
