Linebacker Chase Winovich (Jefferson Hills, Pa./Thomas Jefferson) became the second linebacker commit for Michigan's 2014 class on Saturday. The three-star prospect chose the Wolverines over Ohio State and Pitt, and was a big addition to Michigan's class.
Winovich projects to SAM linebacker, which is one position that has been a focus for the Michigan coaching staff. Michigan's starter, Jake Ryan, recently went down with an ACL injury, which put a dent in an already thin spot on the depth chart.
