Four U-M Pledges Named Parade All-Americans
Five-star offensive lineman Justin Boren of Pickerington, Ohio North High School will also be a participant in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl game on Jan. 7 in San Antonio, Texas. In May, Boren spurned the home state Buckeyes in order to follow in his father's cleats and play for Michigan. The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Boren is the No. 8 offensive lineman in the country according to Scout.com. Boren will enroll at Michigan upon his return from the Army game.
Another five-star Michigan pledge joins Boren on the Parade All-American and U.S. Army All-American roster. Linebacker Brandon Graham of Crockett Vocational Tech High School in Detroit, the No. 2 linebacker in the country according to Scout.com, committed to the Wolverines in February. The 6-foot-2, 251-pound Graham was reported at one time to have set an official visit to Penn State, but that visit has since been canceled.
In one of the biggest recruiting surprises in recent memory, four-star running Carlos Brown of Heard County High School in Franklin, Ga., shocked virtually everyone when he pledged to the Wolverines in December. The 6-foot-0, 190-pound speedster, the No. 25 rated back in the country according to Scout.com, will be in Ann Arbor shortly as he will join Boren at Michigan for the winter semester, which begins on Jan. 5.
Three-star wide receiver Greg Mathews of Edgewater High School in Orlando, Fla., rounds out the Michigan contingent on the Parade All-American team. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Mathews made his pledge to the Wolverines during his official visit in November. His family has strong ties to Ohio State, but that wasn't enough to keep him from his dream of playing for the Maize and Blue.
Two remaining Michigan targets were also named to the Parade All-American team. Five-star offensive lineman Sam Young of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., joins fellow five-star lineman Steve Schilling of Bellevue, Wash., High School on the team. Schilling took his official visit to Michigan on Dec. 2. Young will take his official visit to Michigan on Jan. 27, his final official visit of the year. Both will play in the U.S. Army All-American game.
