Shocker! Alabama Running Back Commits!

A tough little scatback from Birmingham, Alabama came up to Ann Arbor for a visit this past week ... he was offered a scholarship, and he DID give his verbal commitment to the Wolverines! Read on for more ...

At media there was word floating around that scatback Marquis Maze was about to come up to Ann Arbor for a visit.

There seemed to be intrigue about the tough, speedy little 5-8, 175 pound back from Birmingham, Alabama, Tarrant, either as a running back or a kick returner.

Now GoBlueWolverine has confirmed it -- he did come to Ann Arbor this past week with his mother, he was offered, and last night he gave Michigan his verbal commitment!

Maze will be a running back/athlete in the Mike Hart (albeit faster)/Mister Simpson mold -- newly in vogue at Michigan!

As a junior running back, Maze rushed for 1,109 yards and 19 touchdowns (11.6 yards per carry). He also ran for three touchdowns on returns.
