MGoBlue confirms the report on John DiLaura as well as introduces us to new commit Zach Johnson today. This brings the recruiting class to 9 freshman. For DiLaura, see our previous post. As for Johnson, he’s listed as an infielder/right handed pitcher. Google searching tells me he played catcher in high school, so maybe we’re looking at third or first base in Ann Arbor. To quote MGoBlue:
Johnson comes to the Wolverines after six varsity letters with one in football, two in baseball and three in basketball at Grandville. As a senior, he was named a first team all-conference and first team all-district baseball selection after leading the OK-Red League with a 2.21 earned run average and .550 batting average.
Sounds solid. The article also mentions both players had fathers who played collegiate ball, DiLaura’s at Toledo, Johnson’s at State.
Still no word on the commitment status of Fields (6th round to Tigers), Dennis (10th to Rays), or Biondi (35th to Tigers). I’m sure we’ll find out by September.
