This is a huge coup for the Wolverines, as Clemson went above and beyond to try and get Gary to sign with the Tigers, even sending him a jersey-shaped cake earlier this week. Instead, Gary will head to Ann Arbor and anchor a Michigan defensive line that was stellar last season in Jim Harbaugh’s first year.

Needless to say, with Gary’s commitment to Michigan, the Big Ten is officially up for grabs.
