100% Michigan

Tony Posada

"I'm fully committed," Tony Posada said - meaning he's a Wolverine. "It's 100-percent. Michigan is where I'm going." After visiting Michigan last weekend, he added, "I just realized that I love that school. I love the campus and the whole university and that's where I want to be. Coach Hoke is a great coach and really cares about the program. I think he's what Michigan needs to get back to..."

Tony Posada, the 6-foot-5, 325-pound three-star offensive tackle from Plant Senior High School in Tampa, Fla., committed to Michigan in August, but wavered a bit after the firing of coach Rich Rodriguez. Now, after visiting Michigan officially this past weekend (Jan. 21), he says he's once again completely solid with the Wolverines.

"I'm fully committed," Posada said. "It's 100-percent. Michigan is where I'm going."

So what was it about his official visit that helped him solidify his commitment? "I just realized that I love that school," he said. "I love the campus and the whole university and that's where I want to be."

Posada says he also likes the Wolverines' new head coach Brady Hoke. "Coach Hoke is a great coach and really cares about the program," he said. "I think he's what Michigan needs to get back to that next level.

"But I also like how he talked about wanting to recruit good people too and not just good players," he said. "He seems like a good character guy."

Posada's player host was Wolverines' redshirt freshman offensive lineman Taylor Lewan. "He was cool," he said. "He just told me how great the university is and talked about all the little things that I could expect once I'm there. I can't wait."

The Wolverines recruited Posada as an offensive tackle. "They say they like how I'm a get-off-the-ball-quick kind of guy," he said.

Posada also took an official visit to Mississippi State on Jan. 14.

"It was a really good visit," he admitted. "I liked everything about it, but I'm still committed to Michigan.

"The more I thought about it the more I realized that the coaching stuff didn't make too much of a difference," he said. "I really like Michigan and that's where I'd want to go even if I wasn't playing football."

Posada is ranked as the No. 45 offensive tackle in the country by Scout.com.

He reports a 3.3 core GPA and a 1020 SAT.
