There is a certain genre of recruitment in which the parents are allowing their kid to make his own decision despite being partisans for one particular school, and Trevor Keegan's was very much one of those:

For her part, Mom was reportedly "in tears" after Michigan offered Keegan at their 2017 Big Man camp. Coach: also a big Michigan fan. So this one was one that Michigan was going to have to screw up. They almost did after last year's OL performance, which caused Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Georgia to take turns as Keegan's projected leader. Ed Warriner's rehab job allowed the early leader to re-emerge, much to everyone's delight. 

Now to see what Michigan's won:


Rivals ESPN 24/7 Composite
4*, #208 overall
#21 OT, #1 IL
4*, #168 overall
#17 OT, #1 IL
4*, #173 overall
#19 OT, #2 IL
4*, #163 overall
#17 OT, #1 IL

A tight range that sees Keegan land higher on the composite than any single service, as tends to happen when everyone has a kid ranked about the same.
