Michigan wrapped up a decent recruiting class earlier in February. There are no 5-star recruits, but the Wolverines got a fair share of 4-star guys. For a historical perspective on where they match up with recruits from the past, here’s a look at where they slot in all-time, according to the 247 Composite.

A.J. Henning – WR – Frankfort (IL) Lincoln-Way East
2020 ranking: #101
Historical ranking: #80 all-time at Michigan
Flanked by: RB Kareem Walker (#100 in 2016) and DT Will Johnson (#105 in 2004)
Closest positional comparisons: Toney Clemons (#96 in 2007) and Adrian Arrington (#115 in 2004)

Braiden McGregor – DE – Port Huron (MI) Northern
2020 ranking: #122
Historical ranking: #103
Tied with: WR Tarik Black (#122 in 2017)
Closest positional comparisons: Aidan Hutchinson (#112 in 2018) and Chris Wormley (#129 in 2012)

Visitors: Michigan vs. Michigan State

Theo Johnson (#20, image via DawgNation)

I will be adding tot his list throughout the week.

2020

Blake Corum – RB – Baltimore (MD) St. Frances: Corum is committed to Michigan (LINK).

Theo Johnson – TE – Windsor (Ontario) Holy Names: Johnson is a 6’6″, 242 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, and Penn State, among others. He’s a 4-star, the #3 tight end, and #95 overall. The crystal ball is 60% for Penn State and 40% undecided; it appears to me that if it’s not Penn State, it will be Michigan. This is his last official visit before announcing his decision on November 18.

James Pogorelc – OT – Chantilly (VA) Chantilly: Pogorelc is a 6’7″, 270 lb. prospect with offers from Michigan, North Carolina, Stanford, and Virginia, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #31 offensive tackle, and #369 overall. Right now his crystal ball is 100% for Stanford.

Roman Wilson – WR – Honolulu (HI) St. Louis: Wilson is committed to Michigan (LINK). This is his official visit.
