Four star OT Zach Banner has released a top nine, which doesn't mean much to be honest; but at least Michigan made it. The nine lucky schools are Michigan, FSU, LSU, Bama, Oklahoma, USC, Notre Dame, Oregon and Washington.
As I said, a top nine doesn't really mean much, the key to his recruitment will be the five official visits, of which Michigan is very likely to receive one. I get the feeling he really likes Michigan, but the in-state Huskies might be hard to overcome. Hopefully he'll visit for the Notre Dame night game, which should be Michigan's biggest recruiting event of the year.
