Ondre Pipkins commits to Michigan
Michigan filled one of the few remaining needs when it picked up DT Ondre Pipkins from Park Hill high school in Kansas City, MO. Pipkins is a 4-star prospect ot 3/4 services. Scout has him as the number 12 DT and 102 player overall. Rivals has him ranked 19th at his position, and 246 overall. 24/7 is somewhere between the 2, while ESPN is the dramatic outlier.
Pipkins pledged to Michigan while spurning such schools as Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama, and Ohio State. He is a mountain of a young man at 6'3'' 320 pounds. He can move as well as any defensive line recruit in this class, so he's more than a space eater. He should be able to get to the quarterback.
There should be room for one more DT in this class, and most assume it will be Flint Powers Catholic
's Danny O'Brien. We'll see. Other needs ar at WR and RB, with another top notch CB and OL a nice addition.
Congrats Ondre, and Go Blue!
