2013 Recruiting: So What’s Next?

I love football recruiting. National Letter of Intent Day is one of my favorite days of the year, but it can be somewhat boring if your school isn’t in the running for many prospects. For Michigan, Commitmas Day came a little late, or a little early depending on how you look at it. I for one will never forget 2/18/2012. A day when my beloved Wolverines received verbal commitments from six four star prospects in a matter of 12ish hours.

For Michigan, Commitmas Day came a little late, or a little early depending on how you look at it. I for one will never forget 2/18/2012. A day when my beloved Wolverines received verbal commitments from six four star prospects in a matter of 12ish hours. Kyle Bosch (4 star OG/OT), Wyatt Shallman (4 star athlete), David Dawson (3/4 star OG/OC), Jourdan Lewis (3/4 star CB), Chris Fox (4 star OT) and Taco Charlton (4 star LB/DE) all pledged for UM on the same day that the Wolves beat OSU in hoops. Oh yeah, the next day Jake Butt (4 star TE) and Logan Tuley-Tillman (4 star OT) also dropped. Then there was a two day drought until the tall and lanky Jaron Dukes (probable 3 star) committed, followed by a lengthy 3 day hiatus when 4 star OL Patrick Kugler decided to sign up. Those nine verbals brought Michigan’s total commits for the 2013 class up to 13. With 9ish spots left where will the staff decide to go with the rest?

Quarterback  (DONE)

Commits: Shane Morris

Prospects: With 5 star Shane Morris already in the fold it will be pretty hard to lure in another quarterback anyways, so Michigan is likely done here. There have been rumbling of Riley Ferguson possibly visiting Michigan this spring, but the odds of him signing with the Maize and Blue are next to zero. Henry Poggi’s teammate Shane Cockerille could be a possibility, but there is some speculation of whether or not his offer is committable, if he even has one at all.

2013 Top 5 Nationally Ranked Classes

1. Michigan – No other program has a better combo of quantity and quality. Class is heavy on the lines, something that’s probably going Reuben Foster - Rivals.comto be the norm for future Michigan classes.

2. Alabama – Numbers are the only thing keeping Alabama from the #1 class. Being the defending national champion has its share of benefits headlined by a top 5 overall player in OLB Reuben Foster.

3. Florida – Like Michigan, Florida grabbed most of their current commits in a single weekend. Will Muschamp has carpet bombed the state of Florida, all 10 of commits are instate players.

4. Texas A&M – Kevin Sumlin has quietly put together a top 5 class at this early stage. Normally Texas is off to the hottest start in the country but A&M picked up 7 players in a single weekend last week and has a total of 13 commits.

5. Georgia – Smallest class in the top 5 but has no shortage of talent. 3 out of UGA’s 5 commits joined the class prior to September 2011. The recent addition of Shaq Wiggins has only bolstered the overall class.
