Rivals100 released

South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney
Rivals released its initial top 100 rankings today at 1:00 p.m. A cadre of Michigan targets litter the Rivals100, making it a very interesting list. To the best of my knowledge, these are the 42 players who have been offered by Michigan:

1. Jadeveon Clowney, DE – South Carolina
3. James Wilder, Jr., RB – Florida
4. George Farmer, WR – California
7. Cyrus Kouandjio, OT – Maryland
8. Curtis Grant, ILB – Virginia
11. Lawrence Thomas, DE – Michigan (Michigan State)
12. Christian Westerman, OT – Texas (Texas)
13. Mike Bellamy, RB – Florida
18. Jarvis Landry, WR – Louisiana (LSU)
19. Gregory Robinson, OT – Louisiana
22. Mike Blakeley, RB – Florida
23. Doran Grant, CB – Ohio
27. Kris Frost, LB – North Carolina
28. Hasean Clinton-Dix, S – Florida (Alabama)
30. Michael Bennett, DT – Ohio (Ohio State)
32. Matt Hegarty, OG – New Mexico (Notre Dame)
34. Demetrius Hart, RB – Florida
37. Karlos Williams, S – Florida (Florida State)
39. Sammy Watkins, WR – Florida
40. Jay Rome, TE – Georgia
45. Tim Jernigan, DT – Florida
49. DeAnthony Arnett, WR – Michigan
55. Josh Turner, CB – Oklahoma
56. Braxton Miller, QB – Ohio
57. Savon Huggins, RB – New Jersey
58. Anthony Zettel, OG – Michigan
62. Kiehl Frazier, QB – Arkansas (Auburn)
65. Christian LeMay, QB – North Carolina (Georgia)
66. Desmond Jackson, DT – Texas (Texas)
70. Bobby Hart, OG – Florida
72. Cyrus Hobbi, OG – Arizona
73. Tyler Moore, OG – Florida (Nebraska)
74. Brandon Shell, OT – South Carolina
75. Justice Hayes, RB – Michigan
81. Andre Yruretagoyena, OT – Arizona
85. Wayne Lyons, S – Florida
87. Marqise Lee, S – California
88. Andrew Buie, RB – Florida
91. Charone Peake, WR – South Carolina
93. Trey DePriest, LB – Ohio
95. Lamar Dawson, LB – Kentucky
97. Giorgio Newberry, OT – Florida

Michigan has a fighting chance with many of these players, but running back Demetrius Hart and offensive guard/defensive end Anthony Zettel are the only two that seem to have Michigan as their clear front-runner. If Michigan starts winning more, maybe their chances with more of these players will increase. Regardless, it’s somewhat nice to see that Michigan’s early offers align themselves with analysts’ ratings, too.

    Magnus- I would have to say Kris Frost also has M as his clear leader. Just my opinion though.

    Michigan will definitely have to make progress and have a winning season to snag anyone in the top 100. Even Hart has hinted that he's not commiting to Michigan cause of RichRods shaky job status.

    You're absolutely correct. I don't know how Frost slipped my mind. Thanks for the correction.
