Michigan grabs one of the top linebacker recruits from Ohio.
Ben Gedeon, a top linebacker recruit, has committed to the Michigan Wolverines. Gedeon stars for Hudson (OH) High School. He claims offers from Boston College, Duke, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Stanford, Tennessee and Virginia. The list is an impressive combination of top football schools and elite academic institutions.
Gedeon stands 6'3" and weighs in at 215 pounds. He is a consensus four-star recruit and is widely considered one of the top-15 linebackers in the country. Gedeon is a physical player who also pursues well from sideline to sideline. He plays both running back and linebacker for his high school.
Incredibly, Gedeon is the 17th commitment of the 2013 class for the Michigan Wolverines. 10 months from signing day, the Wolverines have most of their recruiting class sewn up, as well as a likely top-10 finish in the recruiting rankings.
