Jibreel Black: 2010 Michigan Commitment (Former Indiana and Cincinnati Commitment) -- Defensive End.
Weight: 260 lbs.
High School: Cincinnati Wyoming (Ohio)
High School Coach: Bernie Barre
Position: Defensive End
Class: 2010 Recruiting Class (Verbal Commit)
Overview: Jibreel makes up for his lack of ideal size with effort and intensity. He has look of a defensive tackle, but possesses enough athletic skill to play defensive end. GBMW would not be surprised to see him play defensive end on early downs and defensive tackle on passing downs.
Strengths: Jibreel has an excellent first step and get off. He really moves his feet and demonstrates decent, solid pad level. Jibreel has a nice burst and closing speed, both in pursuit and pass rush. He has good lateral movement and does a good job maintaining outside leverage.
Needs Work: Jibreel does not use his hands very often and he also needs to work on his press-out. Also, Jibreel has a tendency of getting too deep and over running plays.
Jibreel reminds us of former Michigan player Chris Hutchinson.
