Editor's note: WolverineNation recruiting editor Tom VanHaaren will rank the Wolverines' commitments from 10-1 according to the importance of each to the 2012 roster. Prospect No. 9 is tight end Devin Funchess

The new Al Borges-led offense will feature the tight end position, and Funchess provides a lot of versatility there. He is light in the weight department, but that allows the Michigan coaches to keep him as a lighter pass-catching tight end -- if that is where they see him in the offense.
