After a gut wrenching loss last Saturday to Ohio State, Michigan fans sit and wait to see the results of the conference championships and final College Football Playoff rankings. Michigan received great recruiting news this morning as J’Marick Woods a 4-star safety sticks with his pledge and makes his commitment to Michigan. He announced his commitment Friday at his high school in Florence, Alabama.
Arkansas, Michigan and Mississippi State all had J’Marick on campus this fall for official visits and all make strong pushes for the 26th ranked safety, but ultimately he sticks with Michigan
