Michigan lands WR Dukes

2/22/2012

Not to be outdone by the weekend, Michigan has landed yet another commitment for the 2013 class with wide receiver Jaron Dukes (Columbus, Ohio/Marion-Franklin).

Landing the 6-foot-3, 195-pound wideout is a big deal for the Wolverines, as receiver is a major need for this class.

Dukes recently took a visit to Ann Arbor and has had the Wolverines as the frontrunners since they offered. Growing up a fan of Michigan, Dukes says he has always wanted to be a Wolverine, and he now gets his wish.

Dukes makes commit No. 12 in this class for Michigan.

He also interestingly is the fourth commitment in the class from Ohio. The Wolverines lured nine Ohio prospects in their 2012 class, and they're not backing off in the state just because Urban Meyer has taken over with the Buckeyes. Three of the Ohio commits aren on the ESPNU 150 Watch List.
