MLive: Michigan is #7 seed, will face Oklahoma State

Michigan won the Big Ten Championship and will play Oklahoma State on Friday (LINK). As a #7 seed, they’ll face #10 seed Oklahoma State in Indianapolis at 12:15 p.m. There’s a Pick the Score thread on the message board (LINK).

I don’t know how Michigan got a #7 seed. I was expecting a #6 with a shot at a #5. I’m not sure how the selection committee looked at the way Michigan played over the last several weeks, watched them mostly tear through the Big Ten tourney, and then put them as a #7. I get they were sort of mercurial during the first two-thirds of the season, but every team has its ups and downs except the top few teams in the country.

Hit the jump for a bunch of beautiful women.

Recruiting Snapshot: Iowa

Edwardsville (IL) Edwardsville DE A.J. Epenesa (image via Twitter)

2017 Team Ranking: #41. Iowa signed one 5-star, one 4-star, eighteen 3-stars, and two 2-stars.

Cream of the 2017 Crop: The Hawkeyes landed their to player very early in the process with Edwardsville (IL) Edwardsville defensive end A.J. Epenesa in January of 2016. The 5-star, #2 strongside end, and #29 overall player went on to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Despite a bunch of powerhouse teams trying to pull Epenesa away, the Iowa legacy stayed committed. Mt. Vernon (IA) Mt. Vernon offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs, another Army Bowl participant, is a 4-star, the #31 offensive tackle, and #327 overall. He did impress during Army week, but he’s Iowa’s only other player above a 3-star ranking.

2018 Team Ranking: #46. Two 3-stars are committed to the Hawkeyes.

Cream of the 2018 Crop: The cream hasn’t really risen to the top. Both of Iowa’s commits are ranked in the 900s. One is Crystal Lake (IL) Prairie Ridge offensive guard Jeffrey Jenkins, and the other is Thiensville (WI) Homestead linebacker Mike Bruner.
