Michigan beat rival MSU for elite DL Enow Etta commitment

Every major commitment counts, even in a school like Michigan. Those commitments matter even more when you’re able to steal a solid rookie from a rival, and that’s exactly what Jim Harbaugh and his team were able to do with 4-star lineman Enow Etta of Colleyville, TX.

Etta, a rookie in the Class of 2023, is ranked 8th defensive lineman as well as among the top 60 rookies nationally, according to 247Sports. He checks in at nearly 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds as a rising senior in high school, and the Wolverines secured his commitment despite his strong interest in the Spartans.

With 30 offers to his name, Etta has also committed to the Wolverines from Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Miami, TCU, Tennessee, USC and Wisconsin, among others.

For Etta, the chance to follow in the footsteps of former Michigan smugglers like Aiden Hutchinson and David Ojabo was a plus. Hutchinson was drafted No. 2 overall in this most recent NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. Ojabo was drafted in the second round by the Baltimore Ravens.

“It’s definitely something I want to be a part of and see Ojabo and Hutchinson and [Rashan] Gary, I feel like I can follow in their footsteps,” he told 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong. “I just have to want it and work hard.”

With Etta in the fold, the Wolverines now have 11 commitments as part of the 2023 class, with Etta being the highest rated.
