I feel we won't have many top 5 classes with RichRod as head coach. Now I could very well be wrong. I just don't see it. Yes we pulled a top 10 class with the 2009 class despite us going 3-9. I just don't see us doing much better than that even if we start going 10-2 every year. The reason you may ask? Well I think it is mostly with the type of players RichRod recruits. Players that fit our system have different skill sets then players that fit traditional systems. We may have a top 5 class due to the size of the class. I don't see us having a top 5 class due to the star ratings. Now like I said I could be wrong. We could start winning a lot and attract top defensive recruits. It's hard to say, but RichRod seems like he doesn't mind taking players that are considered by some as risky. I think a big reason why this is, is because of Barwis. Now if we do land a top 5 class sometime in the future, I will be the first to say I was wrong.
THE WHOLE POINT OF MY POST WAS TO SHOW THAT MICHIGAN RARELY GETS TOP 5 CLASSES. WE ALWAYS HAVE SOLID CLASSES, BUT WE DONT GET TOP TOP CLASSES TOO OFTEN AND I DON'T SEE THAT TREND CHANGING WITH RICHROD.
