Morris is a 4 star an second ranked pro qb
D Thomas is a 4 star and #4 RB (looks like he would also be the #2 safety)

I'm confused . . . do we have a dispute as to which MGoUser was the first to break the news about the new 247 rankings?  I assume GoBlue77202 posted this information in a different thread that I missed.  Did the OP in this thread steal GoBlue77202's thunder and start this separate thread without giving him credit?  If so, negbang for the OP!  If not, nevermind.

Definitely didn't copy or try to steal any MGoUser's thunder.  Saw a tweet from @SWiltfong247 stating "247Sports with football rankings for the class of 2013" were up. 

I didn't see anyone else create a topic so I just posted it along with the UM commits that I saw towards the top

Also, I posted this on twitter, but 92% of our offer recipients are in the top247. Only 2, QB Riley Ferguson (he's claimed an offer since the RR days...I haven't read anything to make me believe Hoke even validated that offer) and WR Richard Benjamin aren't in there. 

I should also mention that early efforts from Hoke and staff have put us in very good positions with a lot of these kids...next year's class could easily surpass this year's....depending on how we finish out this season.

Would have been nice to have 2 kids in the top 15, but good luck to him

Ty Isaac is #30
Kyle Bosch #55
I'm sure someone is doing this same thing and will beat me to it
Laquon Treadwell #65 (Standifer's teammate)
Jake Butt #70
Riley Norman #113 (from Michigan, looks like MSU)
Taco Charlton #115
Wyatt Shallman #149
Jon Reshke #180
Jourdan Lewis #218 (obligatory Cass Tech CB)

They explain it in the link above as well as other analysis, like how there is no 5 star player form California at this point since Michael Hutchings fell to 4 stars.


The franchise rating is not given every recruiting cycle. Previously, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (who signed with South Carolina) and offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio (whos signed with Alabama) were rated 105 and 102, respectively, during the 2011 recruiting cycle. 

Defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) debuts with a rating of 103, while linebacker Reuben Foster (LaGrange, Ga./Troup) makes his debut with a rating of 102.

Wow, so both of our 2013 commits are ranked above all but one of our 2012 commits, is that right?  Either way, our first two guys both in the top 35 is pretty huge, not to mention all the potential guys we have on that list.
