Let's look at this realistically....which position groups for Michigan next year are superior to Ohio State's and which are significantly inferior??
QB - OSU returns Braxton
RB - OSU very strong and deep with Hyde, Smith, Hall, Dunn, Elliott etc
OL - OSU returns four starters from a very good unit, and other starter is likely elite prospect 2nd year Taylor Decker
WR - OSU returns all contributors (Brown, Smith, Spencer, Thomas), plus adds Jalin Marshall plus maybe Corey Smith JUCO who could start right away
TE - OSU returns two that got lots of PT, Vannett and Heurman
DL - Spence, Bennett, Schutt, Washington, Steve Miller, Joel Hale, Joey Bosa - young but very high ceiling
LB - other than All-American Shazier, young and unproven Grant/Trey Johnson/Cam Williams in the middle, Josh Perry, Perkins, Jamal Marcus, on the outside
DB - OSU: Roby, Bryant, Barnett all return, nickel-back Doran Grant likely to take other cb spot.
ST - Return good kicker Basil and punter will be HS all-american Townsend
So, OSU likely siginificantly better at QB, RB, OL, DB. A push at WR, LB, DL and ST?
Maybe Michigan has better receivers & TE, do they?
Which team has the x-factor player that can override what's on paper? OSU has playmakers Miller & Shazier. UM?
Anyone disagree that OSU appears to be sigificantly stronger than UM overall next year?

Are you suggesting Michigan has higher acadmeic standards for elite football recruits than Ohio State? I believe Northwestern is the only Big Ten school to not admit elite football players at the basic NCAA clearinghouse level. Do have evidence otherwise?

Multiple OSU analysts think Burrows will end up playing safety, as he's likely to put on some weight and his hips aren't quite as fluid as coaches might want for cb.
