Will No. 1 WR Donovan Peoples-Jones commit to Michigan football tonight?
No. 1 player in state of Michigan to announce Thursday night
Jim Harbaugh has dominated the state of Michigan this recruiting season, securing commitments from four of the top six recruits and putting Michigan in the mix for the other top two players.
Donovan Peoples-Jones, the state's prized high school player in the 2017 class, will announce his decision Thursday night, and the Wolverines are firmly in the mix.
Peoples-Jones holds scholarship offers from 24 schools, but has narrowed his list down to five finalists -- Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Florida and Florida State.

The only five-star player in the state this season, Peoples-Jones is the top wide receiver in the nation and the No. 11 player overall, according to 247 Sports.
Many expect Peoples-Jones to join Cass Tech teammate Jaylen Kelly-Powell in Ann Arbor, but nothing will be final until he announces at 8:30 p.m.
If Michigan lands Peoples-Jones, it will cap off back-to-back days in which the Wolverines landed a top-notch wide receiver. Four-star Connecticut wideout Tarik Black chose Michigan over Alabama and others Wednesday afternoon.
Ambry Thomas, of Detroit Martin Luther King High School; Josh Ross, of St. Mary's High School in West Bloomfield; and Corey Malone-Hatcher, of St. Joseph High School have already committed to the Wolverines from Michigan.
