The Michigan Wolverines have had a spectacularly strong 2013 recruiting trail that has seen them develop the best recruiting class in the country.

They have picked up some great commits right across the field, with some excellent offensive prospects in particular leaving the Michigan Men in a great position for the future.

However, despite their great offseason so far, there is still work that needs to be done on the recruiting trail in order to bolster their squad even further this year. With national signing day rapidly approaching, read on to see the biggest needs remaining for the Wolverines in 2013.


Wide Receiver

Michigan obviously still has a number of strong wide receivers on hand, but could really use another strong go-to guy out wide in the years ahead.

As Shane Morris grows into the starting position under center over the next few years, having strong wideouts to operate and learn alongside him now will be invaluable for their development together and key for Michigan's future offensive plans.

Jeremy Gallon and Drew Dileo are both juniors and great players to watch for the future, but Michigan still needs further depth from their wideouts.

Their signings on the trail so far have landed Csont'e York and Jaron Dukes (the latter of which is a great prospect)—can they bring in another one or two over the remaining few days to really strengthen that offense together over the next few seasons?


Offensive Line

Given all the work that Michigan has done to shore up their offensive line this recruiting trail, surely they don't need any more offensive linemen around?

Perhaps not, but there's definitely still some room for this squad to improve and for some bigger guys up front to be brought in for the Wolverines.

They're set at guard and center for the next few years, but they aren't as strong at offensive tackle and could definitely use some improvements there.

Their offense looks to be the hallmark of this team for many years to come with great quarterback and running back prospects on hand. For that to happen, however, the Michigan Men need to get their front line rolling and in sync with each other nice and early.

They've got great commits likely to sign in the next few days, but adding to them with another tackle or two would be even better for the Wolverines.


Where should Michigan look to improve before national signing day?
