    LTT was also invited, but I guess he didn't participate.

    Those 2013-14 guys (14&15 recruiting classes) will be our upperclassmen next year…

    JH & crew will earn their paychecks in 2017

    There were a lot more guys in the 2016 camp that went on to sign with Michigan. DPJ, Ambry Thomas and Oliver Martin were all there for sure. I am probably missing a few more.

      Yeah, you’re right. I didn’t realize that I hadn’t updated the 2016 list.
