(WXYZ) – The Wolverines have added another big name to their recruiting corps.
Jabrill Peppers, a highly touted cornerback out of Paramus Catholic High in New Jersey, announced his verbal commitment to play Michigan.
The school announced the news Sunday.
Peppers has established himself as the No. 2 recruit in the nation and the best five-star corner prospect in the 2014 class, according to Rivals.
The 6’1”, 205 pound All-American chose Michigan over powerhouse programs such as LSU, Ohio State and Stanford to give Michigan coach Brady Hoke the highest-rated recruit he’s landed as a head coach in his career and help the Wolverines solidify the number one recruiting class in the nation.
Peppers is a dual dimensional threat who put together a stellar performance last season playing corner and running back. He totaled 80 tackles with four interceptions and added 1552 rushing yards on 18 touchdowns, coupling brute physicality with elite speed. He’ll play defense in college.
