For the recruiting rankings don't matter crowd.

Four-star DB Marcus Banks commits to Alabama. Crimson Tide has 27 total commits, 26 are ranked as 4-stars or higher. Only commit not ranked as a 4-star is No. 1 kicker, Will Reichard.

Banks also gives Alabama six defensive backs ranked as a four-star at 6-foot or taller in 2019

No one forced the staff to take guys like Pesek-Hickson, Kent, Stewart, Velazquez, and Newburg. If you can land guys like Dax Hill and Chris Hinton you shouldn't have to reach for baseball and basketball players and guys with zero other power 5 offers.

Stars matter and a staff that is 0-4 against OSU and has yet to win a B1G title isn't getting my blind trust yet, sorry.

Hail to the Vi…

Well Michigan won't hand out illegal benefits and hasn't won championships, so we are going to have to rely on hitting on under-evaluated talent at times...

here's a fun fact, not every player to go in the first 3 rounds of the NFL draft is a 4-star + player. I think the coaches have done pretty well at identifying under-evaluated talent and turning that into a competitive team on the field. 

Michigan isn't going to take the Georgia route and payout families and players to achieve immediate success. Either accept it and support the program, or don't and jump off the band-wagon.

It's stupid to try and compare Michigan's approach to recruiting to someone like Georgia/Bama/hell probably even OSU. 

They've chosen to win with integrity. That takes longer and I, along with most fans, am okay with that.
