Juwann Bushell-Beatty (right) has been one of the hottest recruits in the country this offseason.

Juwann Bushell-Beatty, whose recruitment has skyrocketed this spring, verbally committed to Michigan today, according to Paramus Catholic (Paramus, N.J.) head coach Chris Partridge.

Bushell-Beatty chose Michigan over offers from Florida, Florida State, Boston College and others.

The 6-foot-5, 295-pound tackle has seen his recruitment pick up dramatically since Paramus Catholic closed out its 2012 season with a New Jersey non-public Group IV title.

During the season, Bushell-Beatty's only offer was from UMass. Then, a February offer from Florida State triggered a flurry of offers from other schools.

Bushell-Beatty took a trip to Michigan along with Partridge and teammate Jabrill Peppers during the first week of April. Three weeks later, he's now a part of a 2014 recruiting class that features fellow offensive lineman Mason Cole and standout receiver Drake Harris.

Peppers, arguably the top recruit in the class of 2014, could also commit to Michigan. He's also considering Stanford and Ohio State.
