Top Prep Cornerback Jabrill Peppers Picks Michigan
Top cornerback Jabrill Peppers, the No. 2 player in the Class of 2014, has given his commitment to Michigan, choosing the Wolverines over Penn State.
Peppers (Paramus, N.J./Paramus Catholic) was the Wolverines' highest recruit since 2006. He will join high school teammate, offensive lineman Juwann Bushell-Beatty at Michigan.
Earlier, Peppers admitted that he told the other Wolverine commitment two weeks ago that he was planning on joining them, though he was only 80 percent sure at that time.
"Everyone had Michigan as the leader," said Peppers, who grew up as a Wolverine fan. "They were the leader, but it wasn't a lock."
Peppers also admitted there came a time during recruitment that Stanford led Michigan in the race to sign him.
"Michigan was my childhood favorite, my childhood dream team," Peppers said. "So I tried not to be biased. I really liked Stanford. Just based on the football side and the basis of life after football."
"But when I took that visit to Ann Arbor, I was hoping for it almost to not blow my mind. I knew if it did blow my mind, it was going to be a no-brainer, completely biased. So they completely blew me away," he added.
Now that he has given his commitment to Michigan, Peppers will join Michael Ferns and quarterbck commit as top recruiters for the class.
"A great defensive line makes a great DB and a great defensive secondary. Those guys are definitely on my radar. I'm coming strong. Emphasis on strong," Peppers said.
