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. 3 is safety Jarrod Wilson.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- It has been a long time since Michigan had a true ball-hawking safety like Jarrod Wilson (Akron, Ohio/Buchtel). Yes, he is still in high school, but Wilson's potential is through the roof. He has a great combination of size and speed at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, and his ability to cover the deep third of the field is something that Michigan's defense is lacking.
