Ohio Native Ben Gedeon Commits To University Of Michigan

A star linebacker from Hudson High School in Ohio has made his decision on where he will be playing the next four years of his football life and his choice was the University of Michigan.

Michigan was the favorite all along after they were the first to offer and Gedeon made his verbal pledge on Tuesday. The lineback apparently also had offers from Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State, Purdue, Boston College, Duke, PIttsburgh, Stanford, Tennessee and Virginia.

Gedeon, six-foot-two and 215 pounds, is considered to be a consensus four-star linebacker and is the No. 8 ranked linebacker on Rivals.com. He is now the second four star linebacker to commit to the school for 2013.

↵

Gedeon recorded over 100 tackles during his junior season at linebacker. He also rushed for 1,418 yards and 19 touchdowns, while catching another 23 passes for 168 yards and two more scores as a running back!

↵

Michigan now has 17 committed for the 2013 class.
