My co-worker is a Buckeye fan. So naturally when he stepped out of the office I went to his computer and made mgoblog his home page. About 20 mins later I him yell: "How the fuck did you guys get another 5 star recruit?"

I love it!

Sam was saying that there are only 13 spots in the 2015 class.  So, if guys love M they need to secure their spots.  Campbell committing got Jacques Patrick talking, so Harris is probably thinking I better sign up before there's no room???

This morning Sam said 13 spots for '15.  This is 4?

We could get a snowball due to the limited spots and have a good chunk of 2015 done in short order.

Welcome Damien!

This is what is making me so excited about these 2015 commitments.  Recruiting is always a liquid state (meaning that things constantly change not only on your roster, but in commitments and projections as well), but locking down talent and so many spots early on would seem to be a pretty big advantage for Michigan's coaching staff long-term.

Just think about if a few more guys pull the trigger before the season.  This gives the coaches a ton of extra time to target a few select guys in the 2014/2015 classes and time to focus in on 2016 targets.  This might just be my opinion or confirmation bias, but it seems like Michigan has been closing on a lot more targets as of late and it seems like this kind of effect has to be a factor.  The positive momentum of these developments is just gigantic in my opinion.
