Brady Hoke’s time as the head coach of the Michigan football team is off to a fast start.
The regular season may be over, but the recruiting season is going strong and Hoke has the Wolverines among the top 10 recruiting classes in the nation and the best in the Big Ten.
Somewhere U of M hasn’t been since 2009, in fact last season it wasn’t even ranked in the top 25.
Right now the Wolverines have signed 11 four-star recruits and of those recruits are cornerback Terry Richardson (No.68 ESPN 150), outside linebacker Royce Jenkins-Stone (No.113 ESPN 150), guard Kyle Kalis (No.132 ESPN 150) and inside linebacker Joe Bolden (No.142 ESPN 150).
Recent news for the U of M recruiting class is its dropping of cornerback Yuri Wright who is ranked No.40 overall in the ESPN 150 after sexually graphic tweets got him expelled from Don Bosco high school in New Jersey.
The Wolverines are still in hunt for many big named recruits including five-star wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham (No.3 ESPN 150), five-star offensive tackle Andrus Peat (No.9 ESPN 150) and five-star defensive tackle Eddie Goldman (No.10 ESPN 150).
National Signing Day is Feb. 1 and U of M has plenty of opportunity to improve on its No. 7 nationally ranked class.
