Michigan Football recruiting: Mike Weber goes blue

Michigan Football picked up a big commitment on Wednesday when 4 star Detroit Cass Tech running back Mike Weber committed to play his college football for the Wolverines. Weber becomes the 10th member of Michigan’s stellar 2015 recruiting class. He pledged while on a visit to the Michigan campus.

Weber, who checks in at 5-10, 205, is the 10th rated running back in the country and #103 overall according to rivals.com. Here is an excerpt of his scouting report on ESPN

Thick lower-half and a powerful base. Functionally strong as a runner and blocker. Possesses good speed but better quickness than long speed…Displays very good feet, quickness and lateral agility darting through smaller cutback creases and jump-cutting defenders in the hole. Flashes burst through tight seams…A powerful back with great playing strength. Runs with good lean and a high knee action allowing him to break arm tackles. Flashes a nice burst and adequate top-end speed

Weber is the top ranked player in the state of Michigan. Last season he rushed for 1,659 yards and compiled 24 touchdowns. With Weber and Brian Cole in the fold, Brady Hoke and his  staff now have commitments from the Top Two players in the state of Michigan.
