Hit the jump for more on Mohan’s commitment.
Michigan has basically seemed to have been the front-runner since the Wolverines offered. Despite the fact that several other Erasmus Hall products have signed with Ohio State (Matt Jones, Curtis Samuel, etc.), Michigan maintained a lead throughout. He visited the Buckeyes prior to taking his official to Michigan.
I’ll cut right to the chase, since I have a crap-ton of things to do today:
I love Mohan as a Viper prospect. I don’t know that he has the athleticism and fluidity to play a more traditional safety position, but as a safety/linebacker hybrid, I think he will do very well. He bends well off the edge as a blitzer, and he’s an aggressive player. I can see him taking over the position pretty seamlessly after a year or two in the system.
Michigan now has eleven commitments in the 2020 class, including four linebackers, but the other three (Osman Savage, Nikhai Hill-Green, Cornell Wheeler) are all MIKE/WILL prospects. The Wolverines do not typically recruit New York (or NYC) very heavily, and Mohan will be the first player from Erasmus Hall to play at Michigan. The last Michigan signee from the Empire State was Tyrone Wheatley, Jr. in the class of 2015.
