Check out the full list of 2018 Michigan football commitments, including commitment articles, highlights and rankings:
1. S/OLB: Otis Reese, 6’2” 195lbs. Leesburg, GA (Leesburg County)
Reese is an instinctive, hard hitting defensive standout that the Wolverines staff targeted early on for the 2018 class thanks to his athleticism and versatility. While he plays safety in high school, it looks like his collegiate position will be as a SAM linebacker as he’s expected to grow perfectly into the desired size for the position. If he keeps his speed and athleticism while gaining weight, he could be a very nice player for Don Brown and the Wolverines.

- Rankings: Scout (4*) – Rivals (NR) – 247 (4*, #117 overall) – ESPN (NR)
2. OG: Emil Ekiyor, 6’3” 325lbs. Indianapolis, IN (Cathedral)
Ekiyor is one of the top ranked offensive lineman and players in the 2018 class thanks to his size and technical skills. At 6’3” 325 pounds, most think he’s all just size and strength but he’s not a top tier prospect for that reason alone. He’s also sneaky athletic and has very good feet for a player of his size. He shows the ability to pull, get out in space and make blocks down the field like a player half his size. Because of his mix of size, strength and athleticism, he looks to be a perfect fit at the guard position throughout his collegiate career.
