Ferns is already committed, but he remains on this list for a reason. For one, he is a huge pickup for Michigan, but he is also hot on the recruiting trail for Michigan. Ferns is building on what Shane Morris did in the 2013 class, trying to develop relationships with other top Michigan targets. That could end up being a bonus for Michigan if Ferns can help reel in other prospects.
