it's a major award
Today, Rivals release their 250 to Watch list for 2012, which includes six players from Michigan. Four of them should be household names to Wolverine fans already:
- Danny O'Brien
- Royce Jenkins-Stone
- James Ross
- Terry Richardson
The other two I am not familiar with (Efe Scott-Emuakpor and Kelby Latta).
Anyway, since Rivals usually has at least 250 4* members (well, the top 30 or so of their rankings are 5*), this is a decent barometer of an initial top 250 of Rivals rankings.
