Michigan gains commitments from Cass Tech teammates David Dawson, Delano Hill
ANN ARBOR -- Michigan lost two commitments in the past two months.
Saturday, it gained two -- including one of the departed.
The Wolverines picked up pledges from four-star Detroit Cass Tech teammates David Dawson and Delano Hill. Multiple current commits reported Dawson's commitment, while WolverineNation reported Hill has joined him in the 2013 class.
Dawson once was a Michigan commit, but withdrew that pledge in October, citing wishes to check out other schools. He has since visited Florida, but apparently didn't need his scheduled visits to Alabama, Ohio State and Michigan State to make his decision.
He is ranked as the nation's No. 6 guard according to Rivals, No. 8 according to Scout and No. 1 according to ESPN. He fortifies what already was a deep offensive line haul for Michigan.
That's critical for a Wolverines program that lacks depth in the offensive trenches.
"S/O to @D3_FutureLegend (David Dawson) on recommitting to The University of Michigan Wolverines! #Team134 #GoBlueForever!!” quarterback commit Shane Morris tweeted.
Hill, a four-star prospect also from Cass Tech, is pegged as the nation's No. 23 safety according to Rivals and ESPN. He's No. 24 according to Scout.
Hill once was committed to Iowa. He also had offers from Illinois, Pitt and Syracuse, according to Rivals.
Michigan also has a commitment from a third player from Cass Tech, cornerback Jourdan Lewis. If each signs his letter of intent in February, the Wolverines would have seven players from that school on next year's roster -- including five defensive backs.
Current defensive backs Delonte Hollowell, Terry Richardson and Thomas Gordon, as well as linebacker Royce-Jenkins-Stone, also hail from Cass Tech.
Michigan's 2013 class, which ranks among the top 10 in the country according to the major recruiting services, now stands at 24. It could take up to three more based on the current roster and scholarship limitations, according to WolverineNation's Tom VanHaaren.
