In a move that most widely expected heading into the weekend, Grand Rapids Catholic Central FB/LB Obi Ezeh committed to Michigan on his official visit to Ann Arbor. He is the Wolverines' 12th verbal commitment.

The Michigan Wolverines added another versatile piece to their recruiting puzzle Sunday morning when Grand Rapids FB/LB Obi Ezeh pledged to the Maize and Blue.

"I committed before I left," Ezeh said. "Coach Carr said, 'about time!' (Laughing) Throughout the recruiting process I've established this comfort level with them where when I go down there, I don't feel out of place. I just feel comfortable with the coaches, and now I feel comfortable with the players."

For Ezeh, the visit was more about affirming the positive feelings he had about Michigan heading in. The information he gathered on the trip sealed the deal for both he and his dad. "I flew down Friday and my dad drove down Saturday," Ezeh said. "He loved it. He basically wanted to sit through my academic meetings and get a feel for what the university was going to give me on an academic basis, and he was satisfied."

"I got a chance to meet most of the players and coaches," Ezeh continued. "We ate dinner down at South Quad, so I got a chance to see what the training table was like…what kind of variety there is on a daily basis and what not. We met our hosts. I had Chris Graham for the weekend. We stayed in the rooms for a little bit. We played some video games, and then we went out to a few parties."

Now that he has officially pledged to the Wolverines, Ezeh has another big decision in front of him. The talented athlete, who is also a Rugby standout, must mull over where he will line up when he gets to Ann Arbor.

"They said there was a possibility I play on either side of the ball," he said. "Right now Coach Carr just wants me to decide where I think I should play. At this point in time, no, I really don't have a preference. I'm probably going to have to figure out where I want to start at least though."
