David Dawson decommited from Michigan and Justin Manning delayed his decision date, and that had a big-time ripple effect in this week's #BlueChipBattles Insider, as more than half of the top 10 spots have new occupants.
Michigan has already picked up five commits on its offensive line for the 2013 class. But so far, the Wolverines have only one defensive line commit, Taco Charlton.

The Wolverines' 2012 defensive line class is impressive and includes four-stars Ondre Pipkins, Chris Wormley and Mario Ojemudia, and three-stars Matt Godin, Tom Strobel and Willie Henry.

Here is an in-depth look at each 2013 defensive lineman the Wolverines have offered so far:

Michigan has always had some success recruiting in Texas. Since the local universities do so well with keeping their in-state prospects at home, it's a victory to pull any elite-level prospect out of Texas.

The Wolverines are once again going after Texas products as the staff has extended offers recently to running backs Keith Ford (Cypress, Texas/Cypress Ranch) and Kyle Hicks (Arlington, Texas/Martin), wide receiver Marcell Ateman (Wylie, Texas/Wylie East), offensive lineman J.J. Gustafson (Dallas/Jesuit) and a few others.

The newest offer, however, was extended today to defensive tackle Justin Manning (Dallas/Kimball). The 6-foot-2, 275-pound tackle now holds offers from Michigan, Arizona, USC, Texas, Miami and Tennessee among others.
