DT commit Pipkins plugs many holes

Editor's note: WolverineNation recruiting editor Tom VanHaaren will rank the Wolverines' commitments from 10-1 according to the importance of each to the 2012 roster. Prospect No. 6 is defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Defensive tackle was a big need for Michigan, and Ondre Pipkins is a huge get for the coaching staff. He is only rated as a three-star in the ESPNU rankings, but he performed well above that rating at camps this summer.

At 6-foot-2 and 325 pounds, Pipkins has acknowledged that he will be working on getting in better shape.
