Uh, maybe, but that's tough and subjective. If this was Jabrill Peppers and Nkemdiche or Clowney? You would have a much stronger case. However, let’s revisit some pretty spectacular classes of the recent past.
First, there is that 1993 class for FSU with three Pro Bowl-caliber NFL players in RB Warrick Dunn, OT Tra Thomas and DE/LB Peter Boulware. WR E.G. Green and LB Daryl Bush were there, too. How about Florida in 2007, which signed TE Aaron Hernandez, DE Carlos Dunlap, the Pouncey twins, CB Joe Haden, S Major Wright, RB Chris Rainey and even QB Cam Newton. Alabama in 2008 featured WR Julio Jones, DT Marcell Dareus, S Mark Barron, DE Courtney Upshaw, OG Barrett Jones, DT Terrence Cody and LB Dont'a Hightower. Miami's 1984 class featured a 1-2 punch of Michael Irvin and Bennie Blades. Texas' 2002 class featured CB Aaron Ross and QB Vince Young. Finally, it would be hard to argue Florida’s 2006 class which had both Percy Harvin and Tim Tebow.
Getting back to Michigan, Da'Shawn Hand still has some developing to do over the next two years, so we are not quite ready to say this is the best 1-2 commitment punch ever. But it's one Michigan fans should certainly be excited about.
