Michigan continued its hot streak on the recruiting trail by landing another top prospect. Running back Deveon Smith (Warren, Ohio/Howland) decided that he has seen enough and has committed to the Wolverines.

The ESPNU 150 Watch List back had narrowed his search to Michigan and Ohio State, and Brady Hoke and his staff came out ahead for the talented prospect. Smith and his father grew up Michigan fans, so that was certainly an added advantage for the Wolverines.

Smith measures 5-foot-11, 210 pounds and will provide the coaching staff with the type of back they’ve been looking for. Commitment Wyatt Shallman (Novi, Mich./Detroit Catholic Central) is the bigger, bruising back in this class, and Smith still brings size to the table, but he is more of a traditional back. He doesn’t have great speed, but the way he runs will remind some Michigan fans of past backs who wore the winged helmet.
