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.
