Michigan lands pledge from Heisman finalist's brother
Follow @Miller_Dave Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff are not letting up on the recruiting trail. Just under two weeks after the Wolverines put together a Top-5 recruiting class for the 2016 cycle, the program landed a commitment Monday night from blue-chip quarterback Dylan McCaffrey, who is the younger brother of Stanford's Heisman Trophy finalist Christian McCaffrey. The 6-5, 200-pound Class of 2017 Colorado product tossed 27 touchdowns against just four interceptions in 2015 while leading Valor Christian High School to the Colorado Class 5A football championship. He also ran for 592 yards and 13 more scores. McCaffrey is considered the nation's No. 2 pro-style quarterback in 2017, according to the 247Sports Composite. Michigan brought in signal-caller Brandon Peters this past National Signing Day, so McCaffrey certainly is not shying away from future stout competition. The son of former Denver Broncos wide receiver Ed McCaffrey becomes the fifth player in the Wolverines' 2017 class, joining running back Kurt Taylor, tight end Carter Dunaway, offensive tackle Ja'Raymond Hall and cornerback Benjamin St-Juste.
