Rivals.com: Friday double dip: Michigan football adds California offensive lineman
Rivals.com is reporting that California offensive lineman Erik Magnuson became the highest-ranking member of the Michigan football team's 2012 recruiting class on a busy day at Schembechler Hall.
Earlier Friday, Ohio defensive end Tom Strobel was reported to have become the 12th defensive member of the class.
Magnuson (6-6, 275) joins Rockford's Ben Braden as the team's second offensive line recruit in a class that now includes 16 verbal commitments -- which are non-binding.
Rivals.com rates Magnuson as the 34th-best player in the nation regardless of position.
Rivals.com recruiting writer Adam Gorney notes that Magnuson, a senior-to-be at La Costa Canyon High School in Carlsbad, Calif., has a long relationship with Michigan coach Brady Hoke from his time at San Diego State.
ESPN.com rated the current Michigan recruiting class as the sixth-best in the nation early Friday, before Strobel and Magnuson became the Wolverines' sixth and seventh 4-star recruits.
