Offensive lineman will certainly be the focus of this recruiting class, and it looks like Michigan are in on a few good ones. UM leads for Jordan Diamond (Chicago, IL) who will probably be a high four star prospect, but he might not even be the top lineman UM get!
The Wolverines have been heavily recruiting OT Zach Banner (Lakewood, WA), and it appears to be paying off. Banner, like Diamond is an early four star recruit on scout.com and figures to be one of the top players in the class of 2012. He has offers from virtually every school in the country, but Michigan and Coach Brady Hoke are doing their best to stand out from the pack.
Banner will take all five official visits this fall, and has named Michigan as a probable destination for one of those, along with USC, LSU, Alabama and Notre Dame. Schools closer to home will also get unofficial visits.
It's still early in his recruitment process, he won't even have a top 10 for another couple of months, but Michigan has made a good start here and has a serious chance.
How great would it be to have Diamond and Banner in the same class?
