Michigan's recruiting success early on in the process has continued with the addition of linebacker Mike McCray (Trotwood, Ohio/Trotwood-Madison) in the 2013 class. McCray committed to Michigan on Tuesday after taking a visit to Ann Arbor, and he gives the Wolverines one more big-time playmaker in the class.

"I chose Michigan because it is the right place for me," he said. "I just woke up and my heart and God was telling me that Michigan is the place, and it's time to make my decision. That's what I did, and I just followed my heart and God."

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound backer chose Michigan over Illinois, Tennessee, Arizona, Louisville and Nebraska, among others.
