Going for No. 1

4/23/2012

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan's 2013 recruiting class has made it well known that it intends to be the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation when signing day rolls around in February. With 11 commits on the initial ESPN 150, it looks as though the Wolverines are well on their way, but a lot could happen between now and then, and undoubtedly, moves will be made (both positively and negatively) for almost every prospect on the list.

"The goal for our class is to get not only the best players in the nation, but the best people to come to Michigan," 2013 commit Shane Morris said. "We obviously want to have the No. 1 class according to people … But we can make sure no one gets complacent by making everyone understand nothing matters until we put our pads on and play at the Big House."

The Wolverines' 11 commits on the list were the most of any program, but there are other schools with more highly ranked recruits. When looking at the average ranking of each school's top three commits and finding that average -- in order to look at how concentrated each program's top talent is -- Michigan is not leading that list.
