Three 2012 Michigan football recruits listed as students; could be early enrollees

By Kyle Meinke

NEW ORLEANS — It appears at least three 2012 Michigan football recruits have enrolled early at the university.

There are listings for a Jarrod Arthur Lee Wilson, Joseph Daniel Bolden and Kaleb Stefon Ringer in Michigan's online directory of current students.

Those first and last names match three verbal commitments to Michigan, although a school spokesman said Thursday the program likely will not verify they are with the team until the start of winter classes.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke said last week he expected "two or three" incoming freshman to enroll early.

Jarrod Wilson is a four-star safety from Butchel High School in Akron, Ohio; Joe Bolden is a four-star linebacker from Colerain High School in Cincinnati, Ohio; and Kaleb Ringer is a three-star linebacker from Northmont High School in Clayton, Ohio.

The benefit of enrolling early is players get to go through spring practice and have a head start on conditioning, weight training and scheme before the rest of their classmates join them for the start of fall camp.
