ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan’s 2014 class got off to a solid start, filling holes at positions that lacked depth. And now, with the release of the ESPN 150, all five commits have been named to the list.
Thanks to that fact, the group pops up at No. 6 in the first class rankings.
The Wolverines’ highest-ranked commit is one who has flown under the radar since his commitment -- defensive tackle Bryan Mone (Salt Lake City/Highland) at No. 72.
Mone plays both ways for his high school, but with his size and athleticism he’s projected to help the Wolverines interior defensive line. He was also a commit who some feared would leave the Wolverines with the departure of defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery to Oklahoma. However, Mone has stayed with Michigan and taken the top spot on the ESPN 150 for his class thus far.
