Its Michigan for Roseboro
He made it suspenseful in the final week before his decision - choosing to stay out of the media spotlight - but Lincolnton (N.C.) defensive end Darian Roseboro did what most had expected him to do for months in committing to Michigan this afternoon.
"For the next three or four years I will be attending the University of Michigan" he said.
The 6-4, 283-pound Roseboro is ranked the No. 42 overall player and No. 6 defensive tackle in the nation by Rivals.com, and will be North Carolina's top player when the state rankings are updated. Despite his rankings as an interior player, Roseboro is expected to play both end and tackle at Michigan.
His selection of the Wolverines comes on the heels of two visits to Ann Arbor - once in March during U-M spring practice, and most recently for the annual Barbecue at the Big House recruiting event July 26. Despite the distance between his hometown and the university, he couldn't pass up the opportunity to wear the winged helmet.
Roseboro is commitment No. 11 for Michigan in the 2015 class, and the ninth four-star in the group. His pledge boosts Michigan's team recruiting ranking to No. 18 nationally. Each team ranked ahead of Michigan boasts at least 14 committed players.
