An interesting read....Scout's Scott Kennedy is essentially "prophesizing" that Michigan (along with Fla and Miami) will have a top 10 class next year.
Interesting that Saban's 1st makeshift class, after being also hired in January, finished 22nd similar to our 27th, and then the following year, with a full 12 months, landed the #1 class.
With the following FACTS....
1. Hoke and Mattison are sublime recruiters (Meyer calls Mattison the best in country).
2. The 2012 recruit pool in Michigan/Ohio is the deepest its been in a decade.
3. Michigan will be attractive to those recruits for early playing time, in addition to the normal reasons.
....it is NOT a stretch to think that Michigan can land the top overall recruiting class next year, is it ?
