Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson offensive guard Jalil Irvin has committed to Michigan.

Michigan picked up its third commitment of the 2018 recruiting class by landing a rising 2018 Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson offensive guard Jalil Irvin.

Michigan added some help in the trenches Friday morning when Stone Mountain (Ga.) sophomore offensive guard Jalil Irvin had decided to verbally commit to the Wolverines.

The Peach State standout’s reason for going blue less than a month after receiving an offer?

“Michigan is my dream school and I always wanted to go back home,” Irvin told The Michigan Insider. “I already have the offer, so why wait is what I think.”

The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder is originally from Detroit and moved in 2006 to Georgia. The newest Wolverine Michigan’s stock is rising is in the Peach State and will now work to help it rise even higher.

“They offer a lot of kids down in the south and kids down here are loving it," said Irvin. "I know a lot of people and I’m going to try to get them to come up north. I’m going to try to get my boy Dylan Wonnum up there. That’s like my brother and Ijust need Michigan to offer him. But other people will probably pop up that I recruit (also).”

Michigan’s most recent satellite camptook place in Atlanta and although Irvin didn’t participate, he was there to watch and take in the atmosphere. He saw his future head coach Jim Harbaugh and offensive line coach Tim Drevno hard at work and came away extremely impressed.

“It was great,” said Irvin of the satellite camp. “The intensity, the energy, I loved it all. Both (Harbaugh and Drevno) are great men and know the game really well. They bring great experience and energy, which I love those factors about them.”

Irvin has yet to get up to Ann Arbor , but he plans to remedy that in the very near future.

“I’ll probably be up there in early July because I’ll be visiting family,” said Irvin. “I do (plan to) still take my visits, receive offers and enjoy the recruiting process.”
