Jabrill Peppers, who is arguably the best cornerback in the nation, committed to Michigan in a unique fashion: by rapping.

The Class of 2014 defensive back from Paramus Catholic High (Paramus, N.J.) is the Wolverines' highest-rated recruit since 2006.
The 6-1, 205-pounder chose the Wolverines on Sunday over Stanford, Penn State and Rutgers, among many others. He also held offers from major programs such as Alabama and Ohio State, but those schools were eliminated earlier in the process.
Peppers, who grew up a Michigan fan, will join high school teammate, offensive lineman Juwann Bushell-Beatty, in Ann Arbor.
Last season Peppers had 77 tackles and three interceptions on defense and rushed for 1,552 yards and 18 scores on offense. He also caught 20 passes for 337 yards and five scores.
Even though this is just a verbal commitment, it was certainly a great weekend for Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke and defensive coordinator Greg Mattison.
