Michigan Football Recruiting: The Best and Worst of National Signing Day
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
Jabrill Peppers headlines Brady Hoke's fourth recruiting class.

Compared to other premier college football programs around the country, the Wolverines had a relatively uneventful, relaxed national signing day. Michigan's class gained its final member back in August, and the theme of this year's recruiting cycle was consistent with its last few classes. Head coach Brady Hoke doesn't care for last-minute surprises. 

While Michigan's 16-man class slipped all the way to 20th nationally, it's packed top to bottom with elite talent. No. 3 overall recruit Jabrill Peppers is the headliner, but wide receiver Drake Harris has the type of ability that could propel him into next season's starting lineup.

Lawrence Marshall, who is the nation's No. 9-ranked defensive end, is another player with tremendous upside that can help create much-needed pressure on opposing quarterbacks. 

But while it was mellow day in Schembechler Hall, it wasn't without its disappointments. 

So what was the best and worst of national signing day for the Michigan Wolverines? I'll define "best" as the addition of signees who are likely to have an immediate impact on the team, and I'll define "worst" by highlighting a few recruits who made the decision to sign elsewhere.
