Analysis:  Frank is a prospect who went virtually under the radar.  He is more of a regionally known prospect than a nationally.  That didn't stop the Wolverines from going down into the Buckeye State and plucking a good football player from right in their backyard.  For several years now Glenville has had the reputation for being "anti-UM" when it came to recruiting.  It was virtually unheard of for Michigan to grab a player out of the Cleveland area school.  Hoke and Co' wasted no time getting down there and securing the commitment from Frank.  If Frank is going to be a TE for Michigan he is going to need to add some weight.  In college a coach usually likes their tight ends to be around 240 lbs or more.  Frank's frame sits more for a WR than a TE.  Franks size makes him perfect for a linebacker spot.  His combination of size and speed would make him suitable for a SAM or even a WILL linebacker.  It will be interesting to see where Michigan places Frank.  He is probably going to redshirt so he will have plenty of time to gain some bulk and get used to Michigan academics.
