An astonishing 11 out of the 17 verbal commitments in Michigan's 2013 class have made the ESPN 150 list.
The following players have qualified as the best 150 players in the country for the 2013 class:
37. Shane Morris (QB)
63. Gareon Conley (CB)
75. Mike McCray (OLB)
92. David Dawson (OG)
97. Logan Tuley-Tillman (OT)
98. Dymonte Thomas (ATH)—ESPN has him ranked as an athlete, but he's been playing safety in HS.
105. Chris Fox (OT)
107. Jourdan Lewis (CB)
112. Kyle Bosch (OG)
115. Taco Charlton (DE)
121. Patrick Kugler (OG)
The team with the next-highest number of commitments in the ESPN 150 is Florida, and they have seven verbal commitments. Georgia, Alabama and Texas follow suit with six verbal commitments.
As you can see, no team is close to matching what Michigan has done so far with the 2013 class.
So, who missed out? I was thinking that TE Jake Butt might have made the list, but I was shocked that the No. 1-rated running back in Ohio, DeVeon Smith, wasn't able to crack this index of players.
Players can move up and down this list throughout the season, but for Michigan to already have 11 players on this list when it's not even May? That's simply amazing.
Michigan has approximately eight scholarships left in this class. Let's hope the Wolverines can get the best of the best to finish out this 2013 recruiting season on a high note.
