Michigan Football: 2009 Michigan Recruiting Breakdown

Recruiting Classes Breakdown:

2004 recruiting class: Fifth year Senior (7)

2005 recruiting class: Senior or Redshirt junior (13)

2006 recruiting class: Junior or Redshirt sophomore (16)

2007 recruiting class: Sophomore or Redshirt freshman (19)

2008 recruiting class: Freshman (24)

****Didn’t count walk-ons or guys that get one-year scholarships yet

 

Have 11 people not returning with eligibility left for various reasons from 2008 roster:

2004 class: Adrian Arrington (NFL), Jeremy Ciulla, Brett Gallimore, Alex Mitchell, and Grant DeBenedictis (5)

2005 class: Antonio Bass, Mario Manningham (NFL), and Chris McLaurin (3)

2006 class: Quintin Patilla and Justin Boren (2)

2007 class: Ryan Mallett (1)

 

Recruiting list for 2009 season:

So if the numbers are correct, come this fall we will have 79 players out of the allotted 85 scholarships this fall, meaning we have six available scholarships for walk-ons this fall since we are not to the 85 total. We will lose 11 on scholarship that are either a fifth year senior or seniors.

That means Michigan will have at least 17 commits next year, and probably a lot more. I can see several people possibly leaving after the spring practices this year, and I am sure several will not be back for the 2009 fall season.

I can see some of the redshirt juniors right now not asked to be back or not returning for their fifth year in the 2009 season, so that would raise the number already to 20, and I am sure by the time fall of 2009 arrives we will see at least three to five more people leaving to equal 23-25 new kids.

So I am thinking we go after another 25 kids for the 2009 recruiting class if we can find the right kids for the new program.

Coach Rod would have over half the team as his recruits, counting the incoming 2008 freshman class and the 2009 recruiting class, so he is putting his stamp on this program very quickly for the fall of 2009 football season.

So let's just say we can go after a full 25 recruits for 2009 class
