Michigan's roll on the recruiting trail continued Monday as the number one-ranked recruiting class added big Kansas City (Mo.) defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins to what is surely a cornerstone class for Brady Hoke.
"It's going to be great to be able to come back home where I belong and to be part of the legacy all the greats left," Pipkins told 247Sports.com.
The 6-foot-3, 320-pounder recently visited Michigan unofficially for the school's BBQ at the Big House and came away impressed enough to make a commitmentment shortly thereafter. Pipkins is originally from the state of Michigan, Saginaw to be precise, and held offers from Alabama, Oklahoma, Michigan State, Ohio State and others.
Pipkins gives the Wolverines their 23rd commitment for the class of 2012. He racked up 50 tackles and four sacks, to go along with eight forced fumbles, last season as a junior.
