Velazquez hopes to participate in both sports at the next level and is slated to play VIPER linebacker for the football team. In baseball, the lefty outfielder posted a .461 batting average last season. The Wolverines first offered Velazquez for football in March, locking up the change in path this week.

Standing in at 6-0, 205 pounds, Velazquez is rated as a three-star safety by Rivals and 247 Sports, while ESPN has yet to rank him. He is Michigan’s 11th pledge for the 2019 recruiting class.

Velazquez is the Wolverines’ second commitment of the week out of Ohio State’s backyard after landing a pledge from 2020 Columbus Northland wide receiver Kalil Branham on Tuesday.
