New Michigan Man!: OT Erik Magnuson

Another great day for the University of Michigan recruiting as the #34 player in the country, top 10 OT, and 4 star recruit, Erik Magnuson from La Costa Canyon HS in California has committed to be a Michigan Wolverine!

Magnuson gave out his top schools recently and Michigan was the leader so this would have been a big loss if anyone else made up ground. But now its official, Mags is commitment #16 and will be a donning the winged helmet in 2012.

Fish\’s reaction: This is even bigger than picking up Strobel about 30 minutes ago. Magnuson is a big (6\’6\’\’ 275lb) Offensive Tackle that brings back the \”big ugly\’s\” and could be a huge part of the offensive line for the future. Two more offensive lineman could and should be brought in this class (Jordan Diamond, Paul Thurston, Jordan Simmons). Also, just like I said with Strobel, their spots in this class are filling up VERY fast, I expect the staff to bring in a class around 25, so that leaves 9(!!) spots left, and with the pace they are going at now, it could be filled up by the end of the summer.
