Jacob Matuska commits to Notre Dame

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Notre Dame has started to ramp up recruiting in the class of 2013, not only with a slew of recent offers going out in recent weeks but in picking up a commitment on Wednesday from Columbus (Ohio) athlete Jacob Matuska.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound prospect held offers from schools such as Cincinnati, Michigan, Oklahoma and others. A recent visit to South Bend over the weekend by the defensive end/tight end seamed to seal the deal for the Irish however.

Matuska becomes the second commitment for Notre Dame's class of 2013, joining Midland (Mich.) offensive lineman Steve Elmer. As a junior last season, Matuska caught four touchdowns on offense and racked up 33 tackles on defense.

Mike McCray commits to Michigan

By Maxpreps' Stephen Spiewak

Mike McCray, a star linebacker on talent-laden Trotwood-Madison (Trotwood, Ohio), committed to Michigan earlier today, according to head coach Maurice Douglass.

He chose Michigan over offers from Oklahoma, Tennessee, Illinois, Purdue and many others.

Douglass told MaxPreps Tuesday morning that he had expected McCray to select the Wolverines.

"I think it's going to come down to Big Blue," he said.

McCray was a defensive leader on a 15-0 Trotwood-Madison team that captured Ohio's Division II state title last year. He gives Michigan a solid piece at linebacker on the heels of a very impressive 2012 haul at the position.

He becomes the second member of Trotwood-Madison's defense to make a college commitment from the class of 2013; defensive back Cam Burrows pledged to Ohio State last month.

Trotwood-Madison is the favorite to repeat as Division II state champions and should be among the state's most talented teams regardless of class.

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Oklahoma is on the board for the class of 2013.

Cypress (Texas) running back Keith Ford committed to the Sooners on Saturday morning while in Norman for the program's Junior Day, according to SoonerScoop.com.

The 5-foot-11, 200-pound Ford is one of the top backs in the state and held offers from schools such as Alabama, Florida State, Notre Dame and Michigan. Oklahoma signed three running backs, one from a junior college, as part of the class of 2012 but none were as highly regarded as Ford is.
