Well, that was a nice way to end a weekend for Michigan football.
On Sunday night, Zach Charbonnet — a 4-star running back from Oaks Christian School in Westlake Village, Calif., according to 247Sports — announced his commitment to play for the Wolverines.

Charbonnet is a member of the Wolverines’ 2019 class, which now consists of 13 members. He is one of five 4-star prospects in the class, which also includes 5-star recruit Chris Hinton, a defensive end. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound back is Michigan’s first tailback to verbally commit for 2019.
The Wolverines class now ranks No. 15 nationally and No. 2 in the Big Ten, according to 247Sports. Charbonnet currently holds 25 scholarship offers, including schools such as UCLA, USC, Wisconsin, Florida, Oklahoma, Penn State and Michigan State.
Charbonnet ranks as the No. 15 running back and No. 36 player in California for his class. And, according to prep sports columnist Eric Sondheimer of the Los Angeles Times, when Charbonnet committed, he meant it.
Michigan got commitment from the best running back in SoCal in Zach Charbonnet from Oaks Christian. And It's a done deal. When he commits, he means it.
