Erik Bakich gets his third commitment this month, with Johnny Slater's verbal pledge yesterday to become part of Michigan's 2013 class. Slater announced the news on Twitter . . .
Verbally committed to play baseball at the University of Michigan! #wolverine— Johnny Slater (@J_Slate2) July 29, 2012
. . . and it was also included in a brief item posted with a Free Press article on Bolden.
The 6-1 Slater attends Southfield Lathrup H.S. and also plays on the Michigan Concealed Security travel team. The Free Press item has him as a centerfielder, but his Perfect Game profile lists him as left-handed pitcher with a fastball topping out at 86 mph. I couldn't find much else about him.
