I took a few days off from posting about this project, but it’s time to get back to it. So what would Michigan’s roster and recruiting look like if they signed the top 25 in-state prospects each year? Here’s the answer.

If you missed them earlier, there were posts about QB (LINK), RB (LINK), TE (LINK), OL (LINK), WR (LINK), DE (LINK), DT (LINK), and LB (LINK).

Hit the jump for the rundown of corners and safeties.

Nightly Roundup: January 11, 2019

Nate Schonle (#81)

Nate Schoenle says he’s coming back for a fifth year. He said in his Instagram post that he needed two surgeries, which explains his absence in 2019.

Schoenle isn’t a great receiver, but he’s a heck of a blocker and special teams player, so his return will be a bonus.

Also, Ambry Thomas says he’s coming back for his senior year, which is what should have been expected.

The holidays are busy. I hope you all are doing well and enjoying Washington State vs. Air Force highlights!

A couple wrap-up items from recent days on players with decisions to make:

  • Nick Eubanks is returning for a fifth year at tight end, which is good because I don’t think he would get drafted in 2020.
  • Kwity Paye is returning for his senior year at defensive end, which is also good because I don’t think his draft stock would be very high.
  • It sounds like Ambry Thomas is coming back, although he hasn’t come out with that decision as definitively as the first two.
