According to the TheWolverine.com and the Detroit News, new Michigan football coach Brady Hoke received his first commitment for the 2011 class Thursday morning when he landed Tamani Carter
from Central (Pickerington).
Carter is a 6-foot, 175-pound defensive back who finished with 55 tackles and three interceptions as the Tigers went 11-1 last season. He returned one of the interceptions for a touchdown and added 25 receptions for 300 yards on offense.
Carter verbally committed to play for Minnesota on Jan. 9 before switching his commitment to Michigan. He also had offers from Stanford and Iowa, among others.Jarrod Ulrey covers Central and Northern Ohio for MaxPreps.com. He covers prep sports for
