247 Sports: Chris Partridge named Recruiter of the Year

Chris Partridge was named national recruiter of the year by 247 Sports (LINK), a more impressive feat than it would have been last year when he helped to recruit the #1 player in the country to Ann Arbor from his former school. This year Partridge did get his older player Drew Singleton, but Singleton wasn’t a 5-star type of recruit.
