Tate Forcier to Michigan

California high school quarterback Tate Forcier committed to Michigan upon the completion of his official visit to Ann Arbor today, according to a report. I guess the Wolverines' loss to Utah on Saturday didn't affect the four-star rated recruit's decision. Forcier had Penn State among his final five schools and was planning to take an official visit to State College during the weekend of the Illinois game. I guess those plans have been scrapped.

California high school quarterback Tate Forcier committed to Michigan upon the completion of his official visit to Ann Arbor today, according to a report. I guess the Wolverines' loss to Utah on Saturday didn't affect the four-star rated recruit's decision. Forcier had Penn State among his final five schools and was planning to take an official visit to State College during the weekend of the Illinois game. I guess those plans have been scrapped.

The Lions haven't signed a quarterback recruit since they bagged Pat Devlin in 2006. They pulled out all the stops to try and acquire Terrelle Pryor for their last recruiting class, but that effort was all for naught. Now they find themselves without a blue chip quarterback when there aren't many left to snag. Most likely, Penn State will have to settle for a second-tier guy (at least, as far as the rankings go). Of course, if they wanted one of the kids they're bound to sign they would have gone after them from the get-go.
