So, with Roseboro committing, Michigan now has the highest average recruit ranking at Scout, 3.91 to 3.90. At Rivals, Michigan comes in at number three, behind only Alabama and USC (they are at 3.95, 3.88, and 3.7 respectively.) For Michigan's player rankings, this is including a kicker. If you pull the kicker out (for averaging purposes,) Michigan's rankings at Scout jump to 4.0, and at Rivals up to 3.9. No matter how you quibble, Michigan is near the top of the heap.
All the concern about stars can get a bit ridiculous, especially when you consider guys like the Glasgow brothers who fly beneath the radar and are a huge asset, despite being walk ons. Still, our recruiting is getting better, not worse. As Ace mentioned on the front page, the number of spots left is getting smaller and smaller. Hopefully, this encourages guys among Keisean Lucier-South, Iman Marshall, Asmar Bilal, Tyrone Wheatley and Marcus Lewis to pull the trigger and join Team 136. And complaints and talk about the 3-star mafia are a thing of the past, thank goodness.
