No. 1 overall recruit Rashan Gary has announced his commitment

Defensive tackle Rashan Gary (6-foot-5, 293 pounds, Paramus, NJ) is the consensus No. 1 overall recruit in the 2016 recruiting cycle, as Gary is expected to immediately be a game-changer on the field with his talent. He waited until National Signing Day to make his decision, but he finally committed to Michigan.

This is a big win for Jim Harbaugh in his first real recruiting cycle as the Michigan head coach. Some of his antics may seem out there, but those antics just landed him a guy that will likely be an impact player as a freshman.

Some may question recruiting rankings, but the No. 1 spot is usually spot on as a game changer. Recent No. 1 overall recruits include LSU's Leonard Fournette, Ole Miss's Robert Nkemdiche, and former South Carolina Gamecock Jadeveon Clowney.
