One of the top linebackers in the 2020 recruiting class announced his commitment on Thursday evening.

Kilal Mullings, a four-star linebacker out of Boston, Massachusetts, has no plans to stay close to home for his collegiate football career.

The elite running back prospect is heading to the Midwest instead.

Mullings committed to Michigan over Stanford, Northwestern and Wisconsin - among others.

The four-star linebacker announced his commitment on Twitter.

The 6-foot-1 linebacker is ranked the No. 9 outside linebacker in the class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings. He's the No. 1 recruit from the state of Massachusetts and the No. 148 player in the country.

Mullings adds to a loaded class for Jim Harbaugh and company. The Wolverines now own the No. 5 recruiting class in the nation and the No. 1 class in the Big Ten.

The new linebacker commit is the No. 3 player in Michigan's class, just behind wide receiver A.J. Henning and defensive end Braiden McGregor.
