Even before the Wolverines picked up a commitment from 2014 linebacker Michael Ferns, Michigan was stacked at the position. Its hauls in the 2012 and 2013 classes were impressive enough, but then the Wolverines did themselves one better by pulling in Ferns.

Because of that depth, Michigan can be pickier with what they chose to do with that last linebacker spot in the 2014 class. Prospects will emerge and continue to be evaluated but with Michigan likely taking just one more linebacker in this class, not as many names will pop up on the radar here than at other positions.
