Michigan Picks up Camp Commit #2!

Every year the Michigan summer camp yields a number of commitments for the Maize and Blue, and this year is no different. News of in-state receiver James Rogers commitment leaked first, but he wasn't the first to pledge. Check inside for more.

The Michigan Wolverines picked up their first camp commitment earlier today when the son of a former player informed them that he would be following in his father's footsteps. Shortly before boarding a plane for home, former Michigan tailback Butch Woolfolk informed GoBlueWolverine that his son, Sugar Land, Texas defensive back Troy Woolfolk, had decided to don the Winged Helmet.

"Michigan offered Troy a scholarship," Woolfolk said. "He decided to go to the University of Michigan."

The latest Woolfolk to wear the Maize and Blue surprised some with his size, measuring in at 6-0, 179 pounds while in Ann Arbor (which is a shade bigger than the 5-10, 170 he is listed at). One thing that was no surprise, however, was his outstanding speed. Despite being tired from days of running prior to his arrival, Woolfolk still showed the ability to run with any receiver he faced.

Woolfolk is an accomplished track athlete having clocked 10.59 in 100 meter and 21.55 in the 200 meters.

Woolfolk is Michigan commitment number eight.
