Amara Darboh is first wide receiver in Michigan's 2012 football recruiting class
Amara Darboh from West Des Moines, Iowa, chose the Wolverines over Iowa, Notre Dame and Wisconsin, according to multiple reports.
“That was something, being in that stadium for that game,” Darboh told the newspaper.
“I was going to make an official visit to Florida, too, but there’s no use now. My gut said Michigan, so that’s where I’m going.”
Darboh, the 24th member of the 2012 recruiting class, is rated a 4-star recruit by both Rivals and Scout. Rivals rates him the 31st-best wide receiver in the nation and Scout lists him at No. 33. ESPN rates Darboh as a 3-star and the No. 77 wide receiver in the nation.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Darboh -- who is listed with a 4.42-second 40-yard dash time -- had 48 receptions for 765 yards and 11 touchdowns for Dowling Catholic. He missed part of the football season, the Des Moines Register reports, because of a torn labrum. He will have surgery Dec. 30.
Verbal committments are non-binding. National Letters of Intent can be signed beginning Feb. 1.
