Four-star recruit and top 10 OLB Junior Colson committed to Michigan on Sunday.

The 6-foot-2 Colson, out of Ravenwood High School in Brentwood, Tenn., picked the Wolverines ahead of his home state Tennessee Volunteers, LSU, Ole Miss and Oregon among 30 offers.

Colson is considered the nation's No. 8 outside linebacker and No. 116 prospect overall, according to 247Sports' composite rankings.

Colson told 247Sports he's going to wear No. 5 and that the Wolverines plan to use him the way they used another player who wore that number.

"They want to use me like they used Jabrill Peppers," Colson told 247Sports. "I looked up to Jabrill since I was real young. I have a Jabrill Peppers jersey. It's a great fit."

The commitment vaults Michigan's 2021 class ranking two spots to No. 8, according 247's composite national team rankings.

Colson racked up 175 tackles and 15 sacks for Ravenwood his junior season.
