SBNation's resident recruiting expert Bud Elliott has come out with his latest "Blue Chip Ratio" rankings. The Blue Chip Ratio is 4 and 5 star players (blue chips) compared to 2 and 3 stars. The benchmark that every national title team has hit since recruiting has been more heavily covered has been 0.51, meaning every title team since 2002 has had more 4 and 5 stars, than not.
Michigan is 1 of 13 teams that has eclipsed the .51 ratio, and 1 of 2 in the B1G (Guess the other). The list of teams with more blue chips has won 12 of the last 14 titles, and does not include Florida, which dipped below this season, but was above the bench mark when they won 2 titles.
Willie Gay committed to Ole Miss today. That's about it.
Saw some posters asking about Baruti yesterday. Looks like he's headed to Utah. Not sure if Beilein will continue to pursue 16' prospects.

4* Athlete Bruce Judson says he decommitted because during an encounter with Urban Meyer, the Ohio State Coach asked him who he was. "I didn't get any love from coach Meyer" Judson said in an interview with SEC Country. During a tour, Meyer repordetely recognized a different recruit but not him. The other recruit corroborated Judson's story, but gave an account where it could have been a joke because Judson was wearing a dark blue shirt.
Lorenz says coaching staff is excited about this one, was covered a little bit here a few months ago. 2016 kid. Recruited as an ATH. HUDL: here.
