Final Team Ranking for Class of 2012

Michigan’s – and the country’s – recruiting class is finishing up for the class of 2012.  There are still some outstanding commitments from guys on Michigan’s radar, such as Stefon Diggs, Alex Kozan, and Anthony Standifer.  Some of those guys could shake up the team rankings a bit, but with National Signing Day having come and gone, here’s where Michigan stands to the major recruiting services.

ESPN: #7
Maxpreps: #4
Rivals: #7
Scout: #4
247 Sports: #8

That’s a pretty good haul for a team coming off a 15-22 stretch from 2008-2010.  Of course, Michigan won the Sugar Bowl and went 11-2 during this past season, but many of Michigan’s top recruits (Joe Bolden, Royce Jenkins-Stone, Kyle Kalis, Ondre Pipkins, Terry Richardson, James Ross, etc.) were committed well before they knew how good Michigan would be in 2011.

EDIT: After I scheduled this post for publication, I wandered over to MGoBlog and saw that Seth did a very in-depth look at Michigan’s recent recruiting classes.  Head over there if you want a more detailed analysis of where Michigan’s recruits and classes rank over the past several years.
