Chuck Filiaga, a four-star tackle out of Texas, announced his commitment to Michigan during today's Army All-American game.

Filiaga, the nation's No. 14 tackle, chose the Wolverines over fellow finalists Nebraska and Oklahoma. He announced that top three back in late December.

Filiaga went into his decision with 247Sports, citing the gameday atmosphere in Ann Arbor, and the chance to study at Michigan's well-regarded business school.

"What really caught my eye was the game atmosphere," Filiaga said. “I really liked my visit to Michigan a lot. It was amazing."

"I need to be somewhere that will help me progress as a lineman," he said. "I want to think of the 40-year plan and not the four-year plan. What's my life after football? I just want to set myself up for life. I really liked Michigan's Business school.”

247 has Filiaga ranked No. 14 in the state of Texas, and No. 98 overall in the class of 2017.

With his commitment, Michigan has the No. 4 class in the country. He is the 27th member of the class, and fifth offensive lineman.

National Signing Day is on February 1.
