Linebacker E.J. Levenberry (Woodbridge, Va./C.D. Hylton) was down to Michigan and Florida State for his final decision. The talented linebacker was originally going to wait to make his decision, but decided that he had seen enough and held a press conference on Tuesday to announce his choice.

He ultimately chose Florida State over the Wolverines in what seemed to be a tight race to the end. There were certain aspects that Levenberry liked about both schools, but he chose to go south to play for the Seminoles.

While losing out on a four-star linebacker is never a good thing, it isn't the end of the world for Michigan. If the Wolverines would have landed Levenberry it would have been icing on the cake for the defense. The coaching staff already signed four linebackers in the 2012 class, and has two linebackers committed in 2013 ranked as four-stars with Mike McCray (Trotwood, Ohio/Trotwood-Madison) and Ben Gedeon (Hudson, Ohio/Hudson).
