The University of Michigan picked up their fourth commit for the Class of 2018 on Friday, as 4-star cornerback Myles Sims (Atlanta, GA) announced his commitment to the Wolverines.

‘Spider’ Sims (6-foot-2, 175 pounds) is regarded as a top-20 talent both at his position and the state of Georgia. He was being recruited hard by Michigan going back to July of 2016 when they first offered him a scholarship. He made an unofficial visit to Michigan back in mid-March and was reportedly in town on Thursday.

The nickname ‘Spider’ comes from his athleticism and wingspan.

Sims was being recruited hard in fact by a boatload of programs, including some of Michigan’s conference rivals in Michigan State and Ohio State. His last official offer from a program came back in early March from the University of Washington.


The addition of Sims now gives the Wolverines a total of four hard commits for the 2018 season. Here are the previous three:

  • 4-star OLB Otis Reese (Leesburg, GA) | Committeed on 06/18/16
  • 4-star OG Emil Ekiyor (Indianapolis, IN) | Committed on 10/02/16
  • 4-star DE Aidan Hutchinson (Dearborn, MI) | Committeed on 02/21/17
