Final 247Sports recruiting class ranking: 20th
Many schools would kill to have the nation's No. 20 recruiting class, but that's not up to standard at Michigan.
However, Big Blue has a group of recruits that deserves to be ranked higher.
The spotlight shines brightest on 5-star athlete Jabrill Peppers, but there's a ton of depth in this class.
Chase Winovich is a 4-star linebacker who has good pass-rush ability, while only considering Juwann Bushell-Beatty a 3-star offensive tackle is insane.
Michael Ferns is a 4-star linebacker who should emerge as a defensive leader in Ann Arbor, 4-star defensive tackle Bryan Mone should play early and Drake Harris and Freddy Canteen are talented 4-star receivers.
Clint Brewster of Wolverine 247 said of Bushell-Beatty in February of 2014:
NFL sized offensive tackle with great range and physicality in the run game, Bushell-Beatty has raw talent with a high level of potential.
