Scout.com’s No. 3-rated player in the state of Michigan, Onwenu committed to Michigan last June.
His decision was noteworthy as he was the first prospect from Detroit to commit to Michigan since Harbaugh became head coach at his alma matter.
Onwenu’s decision also came shortly after Harbaugh told a group of area high school coaches he wanted to make sure they knew the city was a priority for the Wolverines and called Michigan State "the biggest guy on the block."
With a little more than two weeks to go until National Signing Day, Michigan has a verbal commitment from only one of the top 10 players in the state (Onwenu).
Michigan State has three while Notre Dame has two and Ohio State and Iowa both have one.
Detroit King cornerback LaVert Hill and Waterford Mott wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick (ranked No. 2 and No. 7, respectively, in the state) are still undecided.
