Roseboro picks Michigan

Earlier this afternoon, Darian Roseboro committed to Michigan. Following his announcement, the four-star Lincolnton (N.C.) defensive lineman spoke with Scout.com.

Michigan secured a huge commitment earlier today when Darian Roseboro chose the Wolverines.

"I’ve always wanted to go to Michigan," said the 6-foot-3, 293-pound Roseboro. "I knew I wanted to go to Michigan. I love everything about it and I’m really excited.”

His relationship with his recruiting coach at Michigan was important.

”(Cornerbacks) coach (Roy) Manning played a big role in my decision," Roseboro said. “He understands where I’m coming from and just taught me a lot about the tradition at Michigan."

Other Wolverine commits helped land Roseboro.

Alex Malzone, Garrett Taylor and Chris Clark all recruited me,” he said. “Now, I’m going to help recruit any player that’s on board and hopefully get them to join us.”

His most recent visit to Ann Arbor helped seal the deal.

”Everybody there is just down to earth,” Roseboro said. “They treated me and my family very well. They welcomed me like I was one of their own. The coaches also gave me a lot of feedback and information.”

Do not expect the Lincolnton standout change his mind.

”I’m 100 percent committed,” he said. “I’m only taking one official visit and that’s to Michigan for the Penn State game (Oct. 11).”

Roseboro is the No. 14 defensive tackle in the country and the 151st-ranked player overall in the 2015 class.
