#AskLoogs: Ranking Michigan's chances

I don’t think so. Even if they were to land DE Da’Shawn Hand, I don’t think it would be enough to overtake competitors Alabama, LSU, FSU, Georgia and few others. The answer to this questions lies with those ESPN 300 prospects in Louisiana who have yet to make a commitment.

It is a monster class in the state, with 18 prospects in the ESPN 300. The likes of Michigan and Ohio State and others who do not have a stake in those players' decisions precludes them from having a legitimate shot at overtaking those teams that do, most likely just Alabama and LSU.

Whoever signs the majority of those prospects will likely land the No. 1 class come February, unless Georgia can clean up in-state with the likes of DE Lorenzo Carter and ILB Raekwon McMillan, which would put Georgia squarely in the mix.
