Michigan Football New Year Recruiting Update

With signing day just around the corner, here is a look of where things are at. Michigan currently has 24 commits in its 2013 class and could potentially goShane Morris as high as 29. As we’ve seen with Hoke and Company over the past two recruiting cycles, more recruits can pop up at any time. So this list is quite fluid.

Quarterback (Shane Morris)

More on the way? Highly unlikely. Personally, I’d love for the staff to go after another QB for this class just because depth could be a huge concern next season if Devin were to get injured. Russell Bellomy showed that he is not quite ready for the prime time quite yet against Nebraska. He’d have to improve a lot over spring and fall ball to prove otherwise. The only option after him is Mr.. Morris, but without a solid running game throwing him out there seems like a bad idea. With Shane already in the fold you’re not going to get another high profile kid, but adding a mid-tier 3 star kid would be a smart idea. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like adding another QB in this class is going to happen.

Running Back (DeVeon Smith, Wyatt Shallman)

More on the way? Likely. An already really nice running back class could be much better with the addition of 5* Derrick Green. With messes at both Tennessee and Auburn, Michigan seems to be the obvious choice (he even named Michigan his leader a few weeks back), but Green has yet to pull the trigger. Barring a decision at the Army All-American Game, this recruitment will likely draw out until signing day or somewhere near there. I think there is a very good chance that Green ends up in this class, but wouldn’t be shocked if he chose somewhere else. Shallman may very well end up on the defensive side of the ball, but I left him on the running back’s list for now.

2012 Michigan Football Wide Receiver Preview

Depth Chart:

The wide receiver position may be perceived as a weakness on the offensive side of the ball. However, I’ll convince you that this unit may be as strong as it has been in recent years. First, let’s take a look at the projected depth chart. This assumes that we’ll be lining up in a spread formation moreso than a pro-style, which is what we should do considering our quarterbacks.

Added Harper Woods wide out Csont’e York. York had a standout performance at the Nike combine in Columbus a few weeks ago and the Wolverines decided to offer shortly after. After sleeping on the offer, CSont’e verballed to UM the next day. York is a solid three star prospect.

No additions in May. Alex Anzalone (LB-PA) and Lewis Neal (LB-NC) decommit.

The Blueprint to Filling Out the 2013 Class

Michigan currently has 18 commits for its 2013 recruiting class and with the recent departure of Chris Rock, look for the Wolverines to sign anywhere between 22 and 24 prospects. So with 5 or so spots remaining here are some of the positions and prospects to keep an eye on during the upcoming months.

Running Back (1 more?)

Ty IsaacDerrick Green - UMGoBlue

At one point it seemed that Michigan had a pretty sizable lead in the Isaac Sweepstakes, but he has recently committed to USC. Visiting a school that far away twice on your own dime should’ve told you that his interest in the Trojans was/is quite serious. I know that there are people out there that believe DeVeon Smith’s pledge was a deciding factor with Ty, but it wasn’t. You all know that SC is about to get another very good back in Justin Davis right?

Derrick Green

Its pretty obvious that the Michigan coaches want Isaac as the second back in this class. I happen to like Green just as much and would seem to make the perfect plan B. There have been a lot of fluff about Green favoring certain schools, but he recently cleared up some of those rumors. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out over the coming months.

Jordan Wilkins

Seems like an option now, we’ll see if he visits.
