With the commitment of Derrick Green (Richmond, Va./Hermitage), Michigan has landed its highest-ranked running back since 2006. Green, the No. 5 running back in the ESPN 150, is the only ESPN 150 back to pick Michigan during that same time frame.
He isn’t the first running back commit for the Wolverines in the 2013 class, as Deveon Smith (Warren, Ohio/Howland) and Wyatt Shallman (Novi, Mich./Detroit Catholic Central) are also committed, but Green is a huge get for a number of reasons.
