It’s great to be a Michigan fan this offseason.

The Wolverines are dominating the recruiting trail like no other school. Michigan sits atop the first football class rankings and is No. 2 in the first basketball class rankings. Only four other schools appear in both sets of rankings: North Carolina (No. 18 in football/No. 1 in basketball), Notre Dame (10/7), Alabama (3/8) and Florida (10/2), though it should be noted the basketball rankings go only 10 deep at this time.

Given the fact the SEC has won six consecutive football national championships and three of the past seven basketball national championships, it’s good to see Michigan keeping up with, and beating, the 800-pound gorillas of the NCAA jungle.
