Amir Herring, a four-star offensive lineman from West Bloomfield, Mich., became Michigan’s ninth overall commit in the class of 2023 and the first along the offensive line after he announced his pledge to the Wolverines Thursday night.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Herring is the No. 283 ranked recruit in his class and the No. 4 overall prospect in the state of Michigan, according to the 247Sports composite. He plays offensive tackle in high school but is projected to translate to the interior line as either a guard or center at the college level.

On film, Herring shows good technique with his hand placement, while his blocking technique and pure strength allows him to hold blocks on opposing defensive lineman for long periods of time.

Another element that shows up on film is Herring’s willingness to be physical at the point of attack and finish his blocks, something offensive line coach Sherrone Moore and the Michigan coaching staff will love about him from a pure effort standpoint.
