Grand Rapids area OL Jalen Mayfield commits to Michigan

Grand Rapids Catholic Central 2018 OL Jalen Mayfield committed to the University of Michigan on Tuesday night.  One of the state's top offensive lineman and perhaps the best senior tackle selected Michigan over 16 other offers and a top 5 that included; Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Iowa, and Nebraska.

Michigan State offered in January and Minnesota offered a week later.  Mayfield would commit on a visit to Minnesota in less than 2 weeks since being offered by Minnesota.  A month later Michigan would enter the picture and extend an offer to the Gophers commit who then decommitted.  Mayfield would visit; Michigan, Michigan State, and Notre Dame before he committed.

Earlier this month on May 3rd, Mayfield announced he would commit today which is his birthday.

Mayfield entered The D Zone eyes in July 2015 after he was brought up as a freshman to play varsity.  Mayfield was first offered by Central Michigan in June of 2016.

Mayfield is ranked as the #86 player on 247Sports
Mayfield is ranked as the #221 player on Scout
Mayfield is not nationally ranked on Rivals and is listed as their #25 prospect in-state

Also 247Sports compiled a National composite ranking of all of the scouting websites that was #310.

Mayfield will figure to contribute very early at Michigan once he adapts to the speed of the college game as he had a lot of tools to build off of.
