Henry Poggi

5-star defensive tackle Henry Poggi (Baltimore, Maryland) will announce his college commitment on Monday (6/4). According to multiple reports, he has narrowed his decision down to two schools, Michigan and Alabama. Shortly after Maurice Hurst Jr committed to Michigan on Saturday, twitter was ablaze with rumors of another pending commitment for the Wolverines. The prevailing opinion is that Poggi will be commit #20 for Brady Hoke and add to an already outstanding recruiting class.

Tom Lemming ranks Poggi as the #25 overall prospect  and rivals.com ranks him as the #2 defensive tackle in the country. He currently checks in at 6-foot-4, 260 and has the frame to add some bulk. He is very athletic and has the ability to play fullback or tight end at the college level. Here is an excerpt of his scouting report on ESPNU:

He is a coach’s son and comes across as a fairly smart player who reads schemes well and can get himself in good positions. He is a physical and high effort player who works to get around the ball. He is a good tackler who tries to drive through the ball carrier and wrap-up… As a pass rusher he comes up-field hard… He also plays tight end and is a physical and tough blocker…Poggi is a tough and smart.

Poggi would be the third defensive linemen to join Michigan’s 2013 class (see the complete list below). He earned first-team All-Metro honors as a junior racking up 49 tackles (including 11 for loss) and finishing the season with 10 sacks.
