Grand Rapids (Mich.) Christian wide receiver Drake Harris made visits to two of the top schools on his list this weekend, and by Sunday the four-star prospect had decided he was ready to make his college selection.
Harris made a commitment to Michigan following an unofficial visit in Ann Arbor the previous two days. He becomes Michigan's fifth commitment in the 2014 class and their fourth four-star pledge.
"It just seemed like the perfect place," Harris said. "I love the guys that are there already and also the coaching staff is just tremendous. I couldn't ask for anything better."

The 6-3, 185-pound Harris went into the weekend with plans to see both Ohio State and Michigan. He arrived in Columbus on Friday and spent a night with the Ohio State players before driving to Michigan Saturday morning to take in the Wolverine's spring game.
He also spent the night in Ann Arbor before making his commitment official on Sunday.
"It was basically coming down to Michigan and Ohio State," Harris said, "and after I visited Ohio State I liked it a lot, but it just wasn't like Michigan."
Sunday's commitment concludes a year of changes for Harris. Also rated as a four-star basketball prospect, he decided this past winter he would play just football in college. That decision affected a previous commitment he had made to Michigan State last summer, and the Rivals100 prospect re-opened his recruitment.
A slew of new scholarship offers came through for Harris following a record-setting junior season in which he caught 91 passes for 2,016 yards and 23 touchdowns, helping lead Grand Rapids Christian to a state title. He is ranked as the No. 56 player in the class of 2014 and the No. 4 wide receiver prospect nationally.
