Michigan's class ended up No. 6 in the country. It's a class that opened the 2013 RecruitingNation rankings at No. 1 thanks to a flurry of early commitments, including eight on the weekend of Feb. 18, 2012.
This gives Brady Hoke his second consecutive top-10 class and firmly establshes him and his staff as major players on the recruiting trail. Not only is it a class loaded with potential, but it also further signifies the Wolverines are moving toward the coaches' preferred pro-style offense. They locked up six offensive lineman, including five four-stars, the nation's No. 5 running back and the nation's No. 1 fullback. It's back to the future in Ann Arbor, where power football will become the order of the day.
