July Commitments

It looks like Michigan could receive two verbal commitments this month, and both from offensive lineman. Florida's Tony Posada and in-state Jake Fisher are nearing their decision, and UM is in a great position for both of them.

Posada has officially named Michigan as his leader, and has talked about committing as soon as this week, so it sounds like this one is almost a done deal. However! His childhood favorite, the Florida Gators, are not out of the race yet. They told Tony to lose some weight before July 26th if he wanted an offer, so will Posada wait on the Gators?

With Fisher, in comes down to a simple battle between UM and MSU, both of which will receive one final unofficial in the coming weeks - I believe his MSU trip is first. The word is that Michigan is the slight leader, but never trust Mark Dantonio, who will do anything to steal a recruit.

Posada is probably the more likely, but the Florida Gators angle does make me a bit more nervous about it. Still, there is a good chance that both commit within the next 2-3 weeks. If this happens, the coaching staff may try and push Anthony Zettel into a commitment.

Zettel spoke with ESPN earlier this week and he still has UM as his slight leader, but there are rumors that he wants to lose weight and become a defensive end full time - instead of OG. More to come on this shortly.
