Michigan has landed America’s unanimous #1 prospect Rashan Gary of Paramus Catholic in New Jersey.  Gary made his announcement on national television on Wednesday.

“I’m feeling good. A lot of stress off me, so I’m happy,” Gary said during an interview on ESPN’s National Signing Day Special. “Man, coming to the stage, I was talking to both coaches up until then. It took everything to really settle down and really, you know, go through the thought process. God sent me a signal.”

“I picked Michigan because, you know, that’s a place where I felt comfortable. That’s a place where my family felt comfortable. That’s a place where I felt the academic support is great and the degree holds a lot of weight. … It’s going to help me for a lifetime goal, and that’s to make sure I provide for my family.”
