Looking at recruiting

So far, the recruiting year has gone pretty well. Michigan's recruiting class is currently ranked 13th by Rivals.com and 6th by Scout.com. I've never been too heavily into recruiting, but judging by how some prospects were rated that panned out well (and poorly), I'd say that Scout is more accurate, though the real value should be somewhere in between the two.

So far, we have 15 commits. 2 of them, Justin Boren (OL - Pickerington, OH) and Carlos Brown (RB - Franklin, GA) have decided to graduate high school early, and are currently enrolled at the University.

Rivals has our recruiting class as currently having only one five star recruit in Brandon Graham (LB - Detroit). Scout, on the other hand, has four of our recruits as five-stars. The additional recruits are Boren, Jai Eugene (CB - Destrehan, LA), and Marques Slocum (DL - Philadelphia). However, Slocum was a commit from last year who needed a year of prep school to meet academic standards. As a 2005 recruit, Rivals deemed him 5-star worthy.

I won't go too much into other recruits right now, but they are definitely all worth mentioning a little something.
