State Champ, Freestyle National Champ, makes early commitment to Wolverines

Jelani Embree of Warren Lincoln, MI announced via social media today that he has committed to the University of Michigan.

Embree, a junior, is arguably the top recruit in the state of Michigan's class of 2017.  He won the Division 2 State title this year and has already shined on the national scene.  He won the UWW Cadet Freestyle National Title last spring and was FloNational Runner-Up this spring.  

Embree, who projects at 174lbs for the Wolverines, joins the other top in-state recruit 3x State Champ Ben Freeman, who committed to the Wolverines earlier this year, giving The University of Michigan both of the top 2 class of 2017 recruits out of the state of Michigan.
