Rocko Khoury Commits

Instate O-Lineman Rocko Khoury from Traverse City has commited to become a Michigan Wolverine. Khoury is the 8th commitment of the class for Michigan, and the fourth offensive lineman. Khoury is also the third interior OL prospect (probably a future OC). Line recruiting is likely to be completed for the year, unless a good-to-great tackle prospect (Zebrie Sanders, now that Graham Pocic is off the board to Illinois) wants to become a Wolverine as well.

Khoury is far from a world-beater (likely a high 3-star, Jim Stefani's 13th prospect in Michigan and an honorable mention national ranking), but the coaches liked his athleticism at camp (30" vertical), and offered him, leading to his commit today. The commitment is also good because Michigan needs to build depth at the position, after small OL classes in '06 (3, though 2 of them were 5-stars) and '07 (1, an instate sleeper in Mark Huyge).

While the class is not as stellar as that of Ohio State, for example, it is a strong offensive line class nonetheless, and hopefully the coaches can be trusted.
