Michigan flips Nebraska OL pledge
By Tom VanHaaren
Michigan already had a strong haul in the 2013 class along the offensive line, but it appears to have gotten even stronger. The Wolverine's hosted a few offensive linemen on Saturday and have landed one of the visiting targets.
Dan Samuelson (Plymouth, Ind./Plymouth) decommitted from Nebraska and gave his commitment to Michigan while on his visit to Ann Arbor. Samuelson now gives the Wolverines six offensive line commits in what is shaping up to be one of the more impressive hauls in one class.
The 6-foot-5, 295-pound lineman could be a guard or tackle for Michigan, but adds much-needed depth for the future of Michigan's offense. Before the visit, Samuelson had said he would be making his decision to either stick with Nebraska or flip to Michigan on January 14, but decided that he had seen enough.
The Wolverines now have 25 commitments in the 2013 class with 16 four-stars and now eight commitments ranked as three-stars.
