Lorenzetti committed to Michigan over finalists Penn State and Michigan State.

Michigan ranked 17th in Rivals.com's team recruiting rankings heading into the day, but was able to surge up to No. 10 by adding Lorenzetti and fellow three-star prospect Kevonte Henry. Michigan has landed five commitments in the last week and still has a long ways to go until the end of the cycle.

Because Lorenzetti is rated as a high mid three-star recruit with a 5.6 rating, he gives Michigan 75 points in the team recruiting rankings and brings the Maize and Blue's total up to 1,150.

The Wolverines are within striking distance of the No. 9 spot as Boston College is ahead by just five points.
