Michigan already had five offensive linemen committed in this years class and today Dan Samuelson committed while on an official visit to Ann Arbor taking the total to six. Its possible that Samuelson may be the last offensive lineman taken but that is not a guarantee. Samuelson confirmed that the coaching staff is more than prepared to take 7 offensive linemen. Cameron Hunt is also visiting Ann Arbor right now and some believe he could join the fold as well. Samuelson told me that he and Cameron Hunt were both thoroughly enjoying their visits but he hadn't specifically talked to Hunt about committing. Samuelson was previously committed to Nebraska but he told me the distance from his home in Indiana to Lincoln was just too far. The 3 hour trip to Ann Arbor was much more doable. Samuelson is 6'5" and 275 lbs. and isn't ranked all that high as a 3-star prospect but adding depth on the o-line is always nice. I asked Dan about his feelings of the added depth being 1 of 6 linemen in the class and he said he is excited about it. His exact words were "I like all five of those guys. I know Michigan is lacking in a sense of scholarship linemen and they are creating a very deep line. If we all form into 315 lb. monsters it will be pretty awesome." Samuelson makes commitment #25 for Team 134. Expect the Wolverines to take 2-3 more recruits as National Signing Day approaches.
