After signing a monster 2013 recruiting class, the Michigan Wolverines wasted little time pursuing talent for the 2014 class.
Since Feb. 6, the Wolverines have landed three commits for next year's group of newcomers—and they're just getting started. The 2014 haul includes quarterback Wilton Speight, offensive lineman Mason Cole, defensive tackle Bryan Mone and linebacker Michael Ferns, the first 2014 commit ("Project 135").
Three of the four future Wolverines have been tabbed with a 4-star ranking. Speight, so far, hasn't yet been given a formal grade from Rivals.com, but he's earned a 3-star label from 247Sports, which has Speight weighed with an 86 overall ranking.
The Wolverines' 2013 crop was the fifth-best in the country, according to 247Sports. Michigan's 2014 class, although very early in the process, is ranked No. 12 by 247Sports.
We'll break down the potential, strengths and weaknesses of each of the four 2014 commits in this slideshow, while taking a brief glimpse into the future as to how each recruit could impact the Michigan program.
