Michigan Lands Rashan Gary, The Top Overall Recruit In The Country

The nation's No. 1 recruit - five-star defensive tackle Rashan Gary - has made his decision. Gary, a product of Paramus Catholic in Paramus, New Jersey, is officially headed to Michigan. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound star announced his intentions to play for the Wolverines live on both SportsCenter and ESPNU moments ago.

Gary had reportedly been down to either Clemson or Michigan. It's a big get for head coach Jim Harbaugh.

As you'd expect, Gary had offers from nearly every top program in the country, including USC, Auburn, Alabama, Ole Miss, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State and more. He's expected to make an immediate impact at the collegiate level.
