Tate Forcier commits to Michigan
There was good news and there was bad news this weekend. The bad news, of course, was that Michigan lost its opener to Utah. The good news is that quarterback super-recruit Tate Forcier was in town for the game and has decided to commit to Michigan. Forcier is the 17th commitment of the 2009 class. His older brother, Jason Forcier, was a Michigan quarterback before transferring to Stanford after sitting behind Chad Henne. Tate Forcier is a dual-threat quarterback who attends Scripps Ranch (CA) High School. Forcier is currently rated the nation's No. 12 QB by scout.com and the No. 6 dual-threat QB by rivals.com. Forcier's verbal commitment is especially welcome news for Wolverine fans who started to fret when Kevin Newsome re-opened his recruitment process. Go Blue!
