ANN ARBOR, MI — On Wednesday, the Michigan Wolverines landed yet another massive commitment. As of late, the Michigan football team has been seeing tons of great recruiting news — from major crystal balls to a series of huge commitments, Jim Harbaugh and his Wolverines are getting back on the saddle when it comes to high school recruiting. Today, Michigan landed a four-star offensive lineman from the state of Ohio.

Michigan football lands massive commitment from four-star lineman from OH

Ben Roebuck — a four-star offensive tackle from St. Edward High School in Ohio — has committed to the Michigan football team. Roebuck is a massive offensive tackle recruit; he stands at 6-foot-7 and weighs in at 320-pounds, and is ranked as the No. 12 player in Ohio and No. 31 offensive tackle by Rivals.

Here is what the four-star lineman had to say about Michigan football and why he committed (per On3):

“It really just felt like home. I’ve been to the majority of the Big 10 schools and seen everything and the way Michigan just does it is better. They go all out for everything that they do. After being there you really understand why they’re the winningest program ever and that they’re going to keep it that way.

“I’d say I’m closest with either Coach Clink or Coach Moore. Coach Clink’s one of my favorite coaches I’ve ever met. He’s all around a great dude. Coach Moore is the one who offered me and who I committed with and he’s been on me for months now about committing and it finally paid off … I was an OSU fan growing up, but then I grew up and realized that Michigan was the place to be. Go Blue.”
