As you can see, things are a bit different this time around.

Michigan has added two commitments to this class since the last time we put one of these out: four-stars Chris Clark and Grant Newsome. Both are excellent additions to the offensive side of the ball, and it’s cool to see that those predictions panned out for them.

You’ll notice I moved four-star athlete Brian Cole up to the wide receiver spot. While it has been speculated that he could play corner in college, it looks like Michigan is recruiting him as an offensive weapon, so we’ll see what happens there. Miles Boykin is absent from this edition because he will be making his college decision Wednesday, likely between Notre Dame and Michigan State.

Running back becomes interesting now that there is only one spot available after Ty Isaac’s transfer. I still have Mike Weber pegged into that spot, but I’d be lying if I said I was confident in it. During an interview with us at Sound Mind Sound Body, he stated his mind is changing every day.

Outside of that, those are the only real big changes for now. It’s possible that there are guys out there that we haven’t heard much on that could fill spots in this class, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
