In-state 3-star ATH Ben VanSumeren commits to Michigan


Michigan landed a commitment from in-state 3-star ATH Ben VanSumeren Sunday afternoon.?

Out of Essexville (Mich.) Garber HS, VanSumeren was committed to Iowa before his inevitable flip to become a Michigan pledge.

The landscape of the 3-star recruit?s recruitment took its biggest shift following an offer from the Wolverines towards the end of the week.

Once the hometown kid got the offer from Michigan, it was a matter of time until he committed.

He made it official via Twitter.

VanSumeren is 6-3, 228 pounds with one of the most impressive builds from a high school prospect I?ve seen in a long time.

He?s very reminiscent of current Michigan freshman FB Ben Mason. Mason was highly regarded as the team?s strongest player in just his first year on campus. VanSumeren will give him immediate competition for that title.

Here?s proof to that take from a video VanSumeren posted of him repping 225 pounds, 21 times, on the bench press.

The expectation is for VanSumeren to come in and complement Mason at FB and be the Henry Poggi to his Khalid Hill. Then, eventually, start.

Or, he could end up as a TE/FB hybrid.

But that?s not the final call. VanSumeren shows some seriously high upside at linebacker and defensive end, should he get an opportunity defensively.

Though he?s ranked No. 601 in the country, this is a really solid grab for the Wolverines. To grab him from Iowa alone was large. But his fit into the program, fullback position, and upside defensively, make for a really solid get for the staff.

VanSumeren will sign Dec. 20.
