Michigan Offer a Dream Come True

A top Southern defensive tackle grew up on the East Coast -- and as a life-long Michigan fan. He has had offers from many big-time Southern colleges including Florida -- but on Friday he got the offer he has been hoping for. Will he become Michigan commitment number three?

Buford, Georgia defensive tackle Omar Hunter had a great junior season, making 85 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, and 6 sacks.

The 6-foot-1, 300 pounder told GoBlueWolverine that he has gotten the offer he has been waiting and hoping for.
