Michigan has added yet another member to its 2013 class as defensive tackle Maurice Hurst Jr. (Westwood, Mass./Xaverian Brothers) has committed to the Wolverines. The 6-foot-2, 275-pound defensive lineman chose Michigan over offers from Virginia, Ohio State, Michigan State and Nebraska, among others.

He made his decision after visiting Ann Arbor and felt that he had seen enough to end his recruitment.

Hurst gives Michigan a boost at the three-technique defensive tackle spot as he brings a lot of athleticism for a prospect his size. He's versatile enough that his high school team even uses him as a running back, a role he won't be continuing at Michigan.
