On Tuesday, Brady Hoke and the Michigan football program received their 13th verbal commitment for the 2012 freshman class from Southview High School’s DB/WR Allen Gant.
Gant will become a second generation Wolverine following the same collegiate path of his father Tony Gant who also played football for Michigan under legendary coach Bo Schembechler in the early 80’s. Allen Gant is also the cousin on Heisman Trophy, Nation Championship and Superbowl winning Corner Back Charles Woodson.
Although Gant has played multiple positions in his high school career (WR and DB) it is expected that he will be utilized exclusively in the defensive backfield when the 6-foot-2. 210 lbs Gant arrives in Ann Arbor in 2010.
Gant is the 6th player out of the state of Ohio that has committed to play football for Brady Hoke at Michigan for 2012.
