Once the sun and fun of the upcoming Outback Bowl is behind them, the Michigan coaching staff will begin the assembly of next fall's football team.
The bad news is that at least nine new faces will man the 22 starting positions. The good news is the success of the last two recruiting classes will make the job somewhat easier.
The Wolverines' 2012 class was rated No. 4 in the nation by Scout.com. and the 2013 class is rated No. 1, just ahead of Texas A&M and Georgia.
Six early enrollees from the latest class will join the current roster when spring practice gets underway in March.
Let's check out the positions to be filled as Michigan prepares for next season.
