Traverse City offensive lineman Rocko Khoury infored Go Blue Wolverine this afternoon that he has committed to the University of Michigan. The 6'5, 290-lb Khoury committed to the Wolverines over offers from Central Michigan, Michigan State, Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan.
"I did it this morning," Khoury said of his verbal, "I called Chris [Singletary] and he was the first to know. I called Coach Moeller and Coach Carr, but I couldn't get them so I left them a voicemail."
Khoury, recruited heavily as an offensive tackle, is slated to try guard and center as well for the Wolverines. He had originally wanted to take his time, go to a few more camps and make a decision a bit later, but some new information changed his mind.
"I didn't know about the early offers," he said, "and there are a number of linemen they are looking at and if another committs, you can lose your offer, I didn't know that so I was kind of riding it out."
Khoury is the fourth verbal committment the Wolverines have pulled from in-state, joining OT Dann O'Neill, DT Mike Martin and CB Boubacar Cissoko.
GoBlueWolverine.com will have more on Khoury in the next few days, including video highlights.
