When it was first put out there that Michigan would take a class of 26, many were skeptical about how 8 new spaces would free up in the class (early predictions gave UM 18 scholies). But the annual attrition that we've become used to over the last 3 years has struck again and claimed Tony Posada and Je'Ron Stokes this week, and it might rear it's head again in the next few days.
I discussed Posada's departure yesterday, so now let's look at Stokes. Firstly, we have to be disappointed that a guy with so much hype coming to the team has failed to live up to it. But then we have to consider how weak the depth chart is looking at WR next year!
Michigan will now almost certainly take two WRs with the four remaining spots, unless they opt for Ron Thompson and move Devin Funchess to WR, which is a viable option in my opinion if they can't get the right WRs.
Anyway, this means another change to the projected class!
The focus on the class is now fully offensive, so out goes Dan O'Brien and in comes Jordan Payton for the first time! Amara Darboh is still the other receiver, and Jordan Diamond is in as the 6th OL. I'm keeping Brionte Dunn in there too.
