Michigan football reportedly adds to top-ranked 2013 class with commit from four-star DT Henry Poggi
For the second time in three days, the Michigan football team has added a defensive tackle to its 2013 recruiting. And this is a big one.
Four-star Baltimore prospect Henry Poggi has chosen the Wolverines over Alabama, according to GoBlueWolverine.com. He is the 20th member of the class, which is ranked No. 1 i the country by Scout and Rivals.
The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Poggi is listed the 15th-best defensive tackle in the country according to Scout, and second-best according to Rivals.
He follows the addition of Maurice Hurst Jr., who committed to Michigan on Saturday. They join Taco Charlton in the Wolverines' three-man defensive line class for 2013.
That quickly has gone from a position of need to a position of strength.
Poggi is just the third player from outside the Big Ten footprint to pledge to Michigan. Fox is from Colorado and Hurst is from Massachusetts.
The Wolverines are the first team in the country to 20 commits for 2013. Georgia is closest at 19. Ohio State is second in the Big Ten at 11.
