Syracuse (N.Y.) Onondaga Central running back Mike Hart was set to commit to Michigan a couple of weeks ago, but didn't pull the trigger. Is he still going to be a Wolverine?
"I'm 95-percent sure I will commit on Monday," said the 5-foot-10, 175-pounder. "I think my coach is setting up a press conference for that day. It's Michigan for sure, I just need to find the day to announce it."
So has he told any of the coaches at Michigan he's coming?

"Not yet," he said. "I told them I wanted to play there when I visited, but I haven't committed to them or anything. I'll wait until Monday or whenever for that."
Hart, who has 134 career touchdowns already and needs just 40 more to break NC State star T.A. McClendon's national record, rushed for 2,667 yards 60 touchdowns while averaging 13.6 yards per carry as a junior.
Hart also has offers from Virginia, West Virginia, Syracuse, Michigan State and Miami, but has been in love with Michigan and Ann Arbor for a long time.
"It will be a dream come true," he said. "To play there in front of all those people and to wear that uniform, it will be special."
His coach is very high on his star tailback.
"Mike is a special running back," said Onondaga Central head coach Bill Spicer. "He has great vision to see where defenders are coming from, he can change directions without losing any speed and he's a great cut-back runner. The comparisons I've heard the most are a cross between Barry Sanders and Tim Biakabatuka."
