Three-star defensive end Kwity Paye flipped his commitment to Michigan from Boston College 


For the second time in as many days, Jim Harbaugh’s Wolverines have added another commit to their 2017 recruiting class.

Three-star prospect Kwity Paye flipped his commitment to Michigan from Boston College on Monday morning, giving the Wolverines 20 commits in the cycle. Ten of those are 4-star prospects and nine are 3-star recruits.

His decision comes on the heels of 4-star defensive end Donovan Jeter’s commitment to the maize and blue. Jeter’s flip bumped Michigan up from No. 10 to No. 8 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings with 2,841 total points. Paye’s pledge then moved the Wolverines up to No. 7 with 2,911 total points, leapfrogging Tennessee in the process.

Paye originally committed to Boston college on Dec. 4, 2015. However, he took an official visit to Ann Arbor on Oct. 1 for Michigan’s 14-7 win over the Wisconsin Badgers.

At 6-foot-3, 220 lbs Paye has a great motor and brings intensity to the football field. He’s solid in stopping the run game thanks to his backside pursuit and can make the transition into a true edge rusher if he works on his pass rushing technique. Paye is an excellent hand fighter, but he needs to fire off the ball faster and get stronger before he takes on D-1A offensive tackles.

The additions of Jeter and Paye could be setting the stage for the Wolverines to add another defensive recruit. Four-star outside linebacker Willie Gay took an official visit to Michigan this past weekend for its 41-8 win over Illinois, and he decommitted from Ole Miss Monday morning. The Wolverines are now his top choice.
