Alex Legion Verbals to Michigan

Michigan has landed its first prospect in the 2007 class, and it's a doozy! The state of Michigan's top player (and the #11 player in the country), Alex Legion, has officially decided to wear the Maize and Blue.

GoBlueWolverine learned of Alex Legion's intentions commit to the University of Michigan in an exclusive interview yesterday afternoon. Preparations were being made for a noon press conference at his school on Wednesday, but Legion decided today to forgo the event and instead chose to make his commitment official this morning.

"I wanted to do it when I visited Michigan last month," Legion said. "I wanted to commit right then, but I wanted to think about it a little bit more."

His mentor and guardian Tim Green was ecstatic about his youngster's choice. "I think the University of Michigan is a great fit for Alex," Green said. "I really like the coaching staff there."
