The class of 2016 just keeps getting stronger and stronger for Jim Harbaugh and the University of Michigan.
On Thursday evening, the No. 8 ranked prep CB in the nation announced that he is committing to Michigan.

Long has been a target of Michigan for some time now and he decided that waiting until National Signing Day to make his announcement was not necessary.
On Monday, Harbaugh, along with a group of Michigan coaches, were hosted by Long on an in-home visit. During the visit, Harbaugh proved once again that he would do just about anything to impress a recruit, including climbing a tree.
Long also had some interest in Washington, but in the end, the Wolverines came out on top.
