“I will be taking my talents to the BIG HOUSE by committing to The University of Michigan,” Hawkins wrote on Twitter.
Hawkins had narrowed his college choices to U-M, Oregon, South Carolina, Rutgers and Temple.
He’s high school teammates with four-star defensive end Ron Johnson, who committed to U-M last month.
Verbal commitments are nonbinding until national letters of intent are signed in February.
