The work continues for Phil Paea.

As Signing Day approaches Wednesday, Michigans three-star defensive line commit from Berrien Springs has a plan.

Ive been trying to get Jay, he said last week of four-star defensive tackle Jay Tufele, from South Jordan, Utah.

Paea, whose family is Tongan, is pitching to Tufele, who is also of Polynesian decent, about the other Polynesians who will be at U-M.

Hes pretty much quiet about it (but) I feel pretty good about it, Paea said.

Tufele, who will announce on Signing Day and is reportedly leaning to Utah or USC, would join Paea as the only defensive tackles in the class. U-M is also battling for Lee County (Ga.) five-star Aubrey Solomon.

Paea is a three-star recruit but said U-M defensive line coach Greg Mattison told him the Wolverines dont want him to redshirt because theres a chance to play this year.

The spot is thin in numbers, with senior Maurice Hurst, redshirt junior Bryan Mone and redshirt freshman Michael Dwumfour as the scholarship players.
