Whitmer senior Chris Wormley committed to play football at Michigan on Sunday afternoon, said his high school coach, Joe Palka.
Wormley, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound defensive end, had been expected to choose the Wolverines over a group of other schools that includes Ohio State, Notre Dame and Michigan State.
Wormley becomes the 21st verbal commitment in Michigan's 2012 class, which some insiders are touting as the nation's best.
"I think deep down, that's what he's wanted to do for a while," Palka said. "I've been very impressed with Michigan's coaching staff."
