Michigan Football is one of the three finalists with a chance to receive a commitment from super-recruit Da’Shawn Hand (Woodbridge, Virginia). The 6-foot-4, 250 pound defensive end is ranked the #1 recruit in the country by rivals.com.
Hand took an official visit to Florida this past weekend and saw the Gators lose to Vanderbilt. He also recently visited Alabama and was in town for Michigan’s victory over Notre Dame back in September.
Most recruiting experts still believe that Michigan is the front runner in the race to secure a commitment from the elite prospect.
Hand will announce on Thursday
Da’Shawn Hand will make it official when he announces his commitment on Thursday, which is also his 18th birthday. Based on everything I have read and heard, I think there is a very good chance Hand will announce in favor of the Wolverines, but you can never count out Alabama in a recruiting battle.
Here’s video of Hand tossing an opposing running back around like a rag doll.
