CFC#2 Vilain commits to NCAA’s Michigan Wolverines (VIDEO)

After a lengthy process which netted over 30 NCAA offers, CFC#2 Luiji Vilain has finally made one of the biggest decisions of his career.

Yesterday, the 6’4, 240 pound defensive end from Ottawa, Ontario announced that he has verbally committed to Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team, Michigan Wolverines.  Vilain cannot officially sign until NCAA National Signing Day, which takes place in early February.

Last week, Vilain announced that the Wolverines were one of three finalists with the others being USC Trojans and Virginia Tech Hokies. Media reports indicated the defensive standout took in an unofficial visit on May 21st to the Wolverines and that based on his bond that he developed with Wolverines Defensive Line Coach Greg Mattison, that he opted for them.
